My goal is to provide high-quality eye care with dignity and compassion. As a retina specialist and surgeon, I am always happy to help patients needing consultation, treatment, or surgery for vitreoretinal disorders. I also have interests in the advancement of ophthalmology through the use of new technologies

About

Dr. Ahmad graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas summa cum laude with a degree in electrical engineering. He then worked for several years as an engineer, but eventually pursued a career in medicine. He completed medical school at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, followed by ophthalmology residency at the prestigious Cole Eye Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. Given an interest in providing care for complex pathologies, he then completed a vitreoretinal diseases and surgery fellowship at The Retina Institute of St. Louis.
 
Following fellowship. Dr. Ahmad returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio and led the busy retina service as its primary surgeon in the department of ophthalmology at University Hospitals / Case Western Reserve University. Over time, however, he felt a need to dedicate more time to family and this prompted a move into private practice at the Virginia Eye Institute in Richmond, Virginia. After several years in private practice, he decided to return to academic medical practice in order to also teach others and to pursue research interests in big data/artificial intelligence. As such, he joined the Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin health network in summer of 2019 with a secondary appointment at Marquette University’s School of Biomedical Engineering.
 
He is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is an active member of the American Society of Retina Specialists. He has participated in the training of a number of ophthalmologists and was given the 2015 “Teacher of the Year” award in the department of ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University. He has also authored several dozen peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, instructive videos, and online articles regarding vitreoretinal diseases and surgery.
 
He currently sees patients at the Eye Institute on the Froedtert Hospital campus, as well as at the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Moorland Reserve Health Center.

Yes provider said he did not have time to explain surgery to my husband. He acted as though he was scolding me from not following up with the previous provider.

He was condescending, impatient, attempted to make me feel as if I was putting him out. He sold himself ..." You really don't have a choice", "Don't talk now" (we will go over it when I am done ) What he was really saying " I will talk through your options, risks e ct so fast that your head will spin which it did!!!! He tried to make me feel bad that he was "bumping" other pts for ME. Good Lord I came to find out out they always do that if someone still has there macula attached (VS not) Surgery day he came into my room and asked If I had questions. I asked if he did the procedure himself? He said he has a fellow. I asked him if he would do the procedure. He said "this is a teaching hospital and said I could go somewhere else. I got a distinct feeling the MD did not like me. I told my OR nurse about this before I went in (she was kind) I was just giving my condition up to the Lord to take care of me. I kept thinking I hope he is as good as he thinks he is.

This provider appeared attentive to my questions. My concerns that I brought to the tech's attention were - without prompting by myself, addressed by this provider (Dr Ahmad)'s responses. He shared what his myopic scale was with me after I shared mine. I felt connected because his myopia level is similar to mine. I stated that I had some fears. As a means of understanding my questions and concerns about my retina status, he shared that he had a retina hole prior to becoming a physician, and could understand why I was fearful. He made me feel that any question about my eye that I wanted to ask would be respected and was okay to ask. I really felt that he has a passion for his work and that he cared that I understood my situation. I feel very comfortable working with him in a follow up situation.
