I had seen Dr. Ahmadi on TV over 4 years prior to my surgery, knowing I would one day have this surgery. I put his name in a safe place, decided it was time and visited 3 other surgeons before him, just because this was major surgery and I wanted to get a feel for other doctors. Not about the price. His knowledge and calmness had me sold. The comfort level during the visit had me making my surgery appointment before I left my first meeting with him. Extremely, extremely satisfied!
