I have been a patient of Dr. Ahmad for a long time. I recently switched to her new practice and I am as usual very satisfied by her quality or care and the way she addresses my medical concerns. I will continue to see her and recommend her to anyone who needs a doctor for their diabetes and thyroid hormones

Short of it: please do not go to this practice if you have pcosLong of it:I went to this practice about 18 months ago. I was scheduled with Carolyn the PA. I went in with the symptoms of migraines, joint pain, increase in weight gain with no lifestyle changes, fatigue and a few other concerns. The office was beautiful and the front office staff and billing staff were very polite and easy to deal with. Upon discussing my concerns with Carolyn I became emotional (not realizing how worried about my health I had become, this was a surprise to me). She did not offer a tissue or a word of sympathy or encouragement but just sat in silence. Ok, that’s fine. Even the best Drs don’t always have good bed side manner so I dried my tears and moved on. The appointment was very brief and she was hyper focused on my sudden weight gain. I was not concerned bc she ordered a full battery of blood work so I felt confident we would find the root issue of all my symptoms. She did however assure me that she did not think of was pcos. When she walked me out I got my second red flag (the first was her lack of bedside manner), she promptly handed me two pamphlets about injection weight loss meds. I am totally for weight loss meds if that’s a patients choice, however we had no idea what the cause of any of my symptoms were AND I did not meet a single criteria for the weight loss meds as stated ON THE DRUG COMPANIES WEBSITE. Please understand how dangerous that can be. If a drug company is not saying I am a good candidate for a drug then why would a PA suggest it BEFORE labs we even back?? I was very confused but just left the pamphlets in the waiting room and moved on. Shortly after getting my labs back Carolyn messaged me on the patient portal saying I did have borderline PCOS results. I asked what the treatment plan would be for the going forward, expecting something…anything really, to aid all my symptoms. She told me to count calories and do intermittent fasting. Again the focus on my weight gain and ignoring all other symptoms. I had tried both in the previous year but decided that she was the professional so I would give it another try. I followed her advice to a T. I saw zero results in my symptoms including the one she was so focused on, my weight. I lost 2 pounds over 3 months, I was exhausted from not eating for most of the day (she recommended eating from 12-6pm) and irritable. All of my symptoms got worse. After having lunch with a friend in May of 23 she mentioned a mutual friend had started taking Ovasitol for her pcos and was feeling better. I decided to give it a shot since it was SO much cheaper than a follow up appointment (which honestly I was discouraged to make anyway given that most of my symptoms were ignored). Within 3 months I saw huge improvements in my fatigue, joint pain, swelling, AND my anxiety which I hadn’t even realized had increased and almost completely went away. I decided to start doing my own pcos research. I have read scholarly, peer reviewed articles and listened to talks given by other endocrinologist and I can say with complete confidence that this office dropped the ball with me. I have learned that pcos causes weight gain through insulin resistance (which was not explained to me and is still not even mentioned on the office website under their pcos blurb) and that it absolutely can be treated if approached as such. I added in fiber before meals, broke my cardio up into 10-15 minutes after each meal instead of 30-45 mins a day in one session. Meals, exercise, stressors, have all remained the same over the last year. I started in May of 24 and I am myself again. And guess what, I lost 16lbs. Please if you have PCOS find a better provider and believe yourself over anyone.

North GA Endo is a fantastic endocrinology clinic. The office is extremely clean, and the staff are very kind and polite. The PA's are just as knowledgeable as Dr Ahmad and train under her, so you can be assured you're getting top notch advice and care. They also know of and use other pharmaceuticals / products that I haven't seen at other doctors offices. For example, I learned of an FDA approved Testosterone injectable that is better than what I was taking before. They're super thorough and do not rush my appointments.

Dr Ahmad is an amazing Dr, she's so kind and caring too. She explains things in clear detail and I never feel rushed. The new location is nicer and bigger than the old office and while it's a further drive for me, Dr Ahmad is worth the drive.

A big thank you to the entire team for treating me with such personal care and respect, making me feel valued as a person, not just another number. Your kindness and professionalism do not go unnoticed. Highly recommended!"

I do not think I would be holding my little baby girl if it weren’t for Dr Ahmad and her team, including Amy. After the nightmare of recurrent miscarriage I discovered I had subclinical hypothyroidism. My primary dr was dismissive about this, but Dr. Ahmad saw the clinical significance. With my TSH controlled to the “ideal range” I got a positive test 7 months after my last MC and had a healthy pregnancy. I wasn’t the easiest patient to deal with and appreciate their patience along the way. There is alot of information on the web about how to best treat this, and along the way I got a 2nd opinion from a functional medicine dr who recommended a completely different plan of care. After careful consideration I continued working with this office and I am so glad I did. I will eternally be grateful to Dr Ahmad for helping me bring my little girl earthside. If you are looking for an office that will closely follow you during pregnancy I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

Always an excellent experience. All staff are kind and make you feel very welcome. Dr Ahmad has a rare approach that is equally understanding, validating, and professional. She wants you to understand what’s going on with your health and provides helpful feedback and education at each appointment. I never feel rushed or dismissed as I have with other doctors. I drive an hour to this practice and it’s worth the time. Definitely recommend!

Every time I come to see Dr. Ahmad for an appointment I am, without exception, treated with the utmost courtesy and friendliness by everyone with whom I come in contact! Just the fact that there is a patient survey process demonstrates a genuine desire by the practice to give their patients the best possible experience. I am very fortunate to have Dr. Ahmad as one of my health practitioners.

Love coming here and completely trust everyone who I’ve had so far, natural and beautiful results. They are all very professional and experienced. They all have a keen eye for detail and always do a fantastic job listening to me to achieve the results I'm looking for. I have come here a couple of times and will continue to be a loyal customer. They do an excellent job with natural results on lip filler as well as cheek filler. Here is a picture a week after my last visit.

Dr. Ahmad’s thoroughness in addressing my concerns and explaining my treatment plan left me feeling confident and well-informed. Dr. Ahmad has provided me with invaluable guidance and support on my weight loss journey. The practice’s efficiency and friendly atmosphere make each visit a positive one. I’m grateful to have found such a dedicated endocrinologist and would recommend Dr. Ahmad and this practice without hesitation.

I’m going to make this short and sweet. I’ve been to endocrinologists all over the Lawrenceville and surrounding cities and none of them compare to this office. This is the only office that consistently make changes in what I need to get my A1C down. When I first went there I was at a 14 and got as low as a 9 so far. I live about an hour away but I gladly travel that way because I know I end up in the hands of Doctors who care about my life. Extra bonus, the staff is SUPER awesome as well. From front door to the back door!

Dr. Ahmad has changed my life. I went to see her a little over a year ago. I had always felt sick and yucky, had put on 37 pounds, but could never pinpoint exactly how I felt. Dr. Ahmad did a lot of tests, always pays particular attention to everything you say, and comes up with a solution immediately. Fast forward to the present, and I have lost all 37 lbs, am no longer pre-diabetic and haven't felt this good in forever. I am forever grateful to Dr. Anbar for giving me my life back.

My wife has been seeing Dr. Ahmad and our experience has been wonderful. She diagnosed my wife with a unique version of an endocrine disease that was missed by our primary care physician. Dr. Ahmad was thorough in her examination and workup of my wife's symptoms. After further diagnosing my wife's condition, she explained the condition and the short, intermediate, and long term prognosis of the condition and how it would affect our life going forward. She was gentle and compassionate in her delivery of medical information. Since the diagnosis, she has monitored my wife very closely with appropriate follow ups (in person visits and virtual visits when her schedule is full). If you are willing to participate in your own healthcare and are looking for a highly trained healthcare provider to treat your endocrine disease, Dr. Ahmad is the doctor you need to see. We drive 1 hour to see her due to the level of care she provides and we highly recommend her and her team.

I have been seeing Dr. Ahmad for several years after going through a couple other Endo’s that were not up to par, if you know what I mean. Dr. Ahmad is not only a great doctor but she truly cares! She’s compassionate, super kind and listens to her patients. I have referred her to several friends/family members because I absolutely believe in her that much. She is one of those doctors that you’d drive hours to see if you needed to. The PA is super awesome too. You really can’t go wrong with this practice!
I've been seing Dr. Ahmad for the past 3 and a half years on a very regular basis. My condition has hugely improved with her attention and expertise. Not very talkative, more a reserved professional, but efficient and straight to the point. Staff is good and the premises are still nice and perfurmed. I can't recommend Dr. Ahmad enough.

Everyone at this practice is professional courteous, and excellent at their role.Dr Ahmad has guided me through a major life change with a weightloss of 90 pounds. (over 30% of my body weight )She is patient, listens, advises and works with you to diagnose your issue and get you healthy.Also a shout out to the Phlebotomist who is the best at what she does. I never feel the needle going in and she always finds the vein on the first attempt. That says a lot with my hidden veins.I highly recommend this Dr Ahmad and everyone at this practice!

After having thyroid removal surgery, I needed to follow up with an endocrinologist to monitor my hormone levels and to get the proper thyroid hormone supplements prescribed. I could not get a timely appointment with the MD in the office, but was given a quick appointment with Carolyn Lawson, a nurse practitioner. Ms Lawson was extremely knowledgeable about my condition and was very professional, and could easily pass as an MD if someone didn't know she was a nurse practitioner. Highly recommended.

Dr. Ahmad is the best doctor I have ever worked with. She has truly listened to me. She has not talked at me but talked to me to work with my concerns and help me make improvements to my health that have had a positive impact on my entire life. I never feel rushed and she is always encouraging. I have been looking for someone like her for 20 years. She is caring, compassionate, and a true advocate for me. I cannot say enough good things about her. I am truly thankful for Dr. Ahmad and refer her to others who are struggling and looking for someone to work with them to control and manage their health.

I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Ahmad. I have seen several doctors in the past few years, and she was one of the few who genuinely cared. She is easy to relate to and very knowledgeable. Her team is also polite and the office is very clean.
Carolyn Lawson has been so great. I have been with her since my left thyroid has been removed. She’s very compassionate and listen to your concerns. She’s very prompt when you sent her a message and follow up if needed. The person who called me on 10/20 to check me in virtually was phenomenal, I didn’t get his name. He was very tentative, polite and helpful
