I usually don't write many reviews but have been compelled in this case. Have no complaints against the doctors that work here but if you don't want to be overcharged exhorbitantly, please stay away from these people. There billing practices are definitely medical practices if not outright fraud. I was charged $450 for an initial "consultation" plus another $350 for a small incision and then yet another $550 for a minor surgery. It's to be noted that the so-called "initial consultation" was akin to "here's what we would do" followed by doing that and charging $350 for that small incision.

If you think these amounts are "reasonable" as they claim, they would love to have your business.

I tried hard discussing with their billing people, only to be threatened with collection. They will get my money no doubt but I feel its my duty to warn other unsuspecting folks.

This recommendation is on a particular surgeon at this facility: Robert F. Ahmed, M.D. I was referred to Dr. Ahmed by my primary physician because I needed a surgery around my chest. I was fairly nervous when I saw him the first time, because I did not know what to expect. He was very out-going and friendly. His casual talking style made me relaxed. He was very clear on the diagnoses and he explained everything until I understood. It was very easy to work with him. I freaked out again in the surgery room. He was very understanding and again said funny things to relax me. He was not only very pleasant, but also very skillful. He performed the surgery in a way that it absolutely minimized the scars so that even I could not see them easily. I was very happy with the results. The wound was also very clean and it healed easily. I would definitely recommend this surgeon.

PROS: Excellent skills to minimize scars, easy-going and pleasant personality.
CONS: Not easily accessible unless you make an appointment.
