Dr. Shaheed's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Shaheed "I am Board Certified in Hematology and Oncology and have been practicing in the Greater Sacramento area for more than 11 years. I received my Internal Medicine degree from Abington Memorial Hospital, Abington, PA, were I was honored to serve as the Chief Resident. From there, knowing that I wanted to go into the field of Hematology/Oncology, I completed my Fellowship training at Georgetown University Hospital, in Washington D.C., where I was also served as Chief Fellow. After being in private practice for 6 years, I joined Mercy Medical Group where I am currently the Department Chair of Medical Specialties. As part of my ongoing desire to learn, I work closely with a talented multi-disciplinary team, which includes, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, and surgical specialists. We meet regularly to review cancer cases and ensure that all treatment options are being considered. I am also an active member in the California Medical Association, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the American Society of Hematology. With my free time I like to travel, run, hike and spend time with family."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Shaheed "I decided to become an Oncologist because it is a specialty that is all about helping people. I enjoy working closely with my patients and feel like I become a part of their family.  In addition, Oncology is an ever evolving field where a physician needs to keep up to date with latest advancements; this challenges me and keeps me intellectually engaged. I strongly believe in providing state of the art care with personalized service."

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Shaheed came into my life when I needed a calm, encouraging, and positive voice at a very scary diagnosis of breast cancer. He takes time with you and fits your treatments to you and your diagnosis. I feel very blessed to have him as my oncologist.
