Dr. Ahmad uses his various experiences at these educational institutions in order to treat his patients holistically.Dr. Ahmad has formulated a new way to evaluate health of a person. He has devised a system he calls Complete Health Analysis. He uses Oriental Medicine, Ayurveda and Western Medicine concepts to get in-depth information about a patient's body and mind. It helps to find the individual constitution.  Dr. Ahmad then formulates effective health solutions for achieving total well-being and body health.

An important aspect of Dr. Ahmad's medical philosophy is preventive care. Preventive health can be described as the measures taken to avoid the disease and illness that accompanies unhealthy lifestyle choices as well as the natural aging process. In order to prevent disease and illness, Dr. Ahmad customizes a health program for each patient using several techniques from Oriental medicine, Ayurvedic practices, and Western medicine.

Each components of his preventive health care program works to stimulate healthy organ function, strengthen the bones and joints, as well as relieve anxiety or other states of mind that inhibit total body health.Many overlook how detrimental preventive health is and consequently must take drastic reactive steps in order to cure themselves after disease and illness have already taken hold. Treating an illness reactively has definite physical, emotional, and financial costs-- costs that could have been avoided if preventive care had been a priority.
