Dr. Mahmood Solaiman, MD
Advanced training from a leading gastroenterology program. "When I did my gastroenterology rotations in medical school, I liked that we were able to solve problems for patients andhelp them feel better, often right away. Once I decided to specialize in gastroenterology, I set about getting the best possibleeducation at SUNY Health Science Center at Brooklyn. The school's gastroenterology program is one of the most clinically intensive in the country and prepared me to give my patients complete, high-quality care for their digestive health concerns. "Compassionate, patient-centered care."I know that when you need to see a gastroenterologist, you might be worried about your health or nervous about a test orprocedure. I do all I can to set your mind at ease. I'll always take time to talk with you about your situation and answer all yourquestions. I want you to be informed about your health and to feel as comfortable as possible during your care with us." Dr. Solaiman has lived in Maryland most of his life. He enjoys sports, the latest technology, art and, most importantly,spending time with his wife and their two children.

Care Philosophy

My approach in seeing and treating patients is that its a collaboration and joint decision on the approach we take.  I try to make sure every patient has an opportunity to ask any questions so they dont leave the office without a clear understanding of the impression and plan.  I strongly believe in patient education and encourage research online and by other sources.

Patient Comments (21)
Ellicott City, MD |
Over the past three months, I have had two surgical procedures performed by Dr. Solaiman, and at least five related pre- and post-operative consultations. His surgical services were provided both in-hospital, and in his local office. Without exception, Dr. Solaiman and his staff demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, compassion, and follow-up care. Their concern for patient care and understanding was very evident, based on the time and methods they used to keep me informed.

I have been seeing Dr. Solaiman as well as my husband for a few years now. My most recent visit for a Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. I have never felt rushed as I have with other Dr's. and highly recommend him and the practice. The staff is helpful and friendly too.

I had a wonderful experience thanks to Dr. Solaiman and his staff. I had an extreme fear of having this procedure done and everyone made this as comfortable as possible for me. Since this alleviated all of my fears, I actually recommended your practice to my Dentist's hygienist. Thank you for making this as easy as possible!

I have been a patient of Dr. Solaimon for about eight years. At each consultation or procedure, I have received treatment that is performed in a respectful and patient manner.

Dr. Solaiman and Dr, Wei are OUTSTANDING AND WONDERFU!. They are considerate, concerned, and explain all that a patient needs to know. Nurse Em was EXCELLENT as well. The staff and the facility are Top Notch in every way. Dr. Solaiman even made it a point to get back to me with the results of the biopsy before the start of the 4th of July weekend so that I would'nt be worried. In this day and age, a person couldn't ask for more! - Nick C.

Personable yet direct and effective.
in Columbia, MD |
Got me in to see the doctor very quickly. Dr. Solaiman included me in my care, by giving me several options for my care . Dr Solaiman personally called me with my test results and carefully explained my new course of treatment. Not happy with the fact that they can code tests to get the maximum from insurance companies,insteading of coding them the way they should have been ordered.
