Dr. Stephen Stair, my primary physician at Kirklin Clinic, UAB, referred me to Dr. Mustafa Ahmed; Dr. Ahmed and his surgical team at the UAB Structural Heart and Valve Replacement Clinic replaced my aortic valve in December of 2020. I am 77 years old, and the valve replacement has made a dramatic difference in my quality of life. Aortic stenosis had diminished my energy, my stamina, and my enthusiasm for activities I regularly enjoy. New valve. New life. Dr. Ahmed is a thoughtful and exceptionally gifted, nationally recognized cardiologist. He, his diagnostic and surgical team, and staff personify medical excellence. The diagnostic tests and procedures as well as the valve replacement surgery went like clock work. With only a few standard post-operative restrictions, I was performing my regular routine the following day. Struggling with the effects cardiovascular disease? I encourage you to contact Dr, Ahmed and the UAB Structural Heart and Valve Clinic, UAB, Birmingham.

Dr. Ahmed and his team successfully removed a 99.9% blockage in my circumflex artery. He and his team were able to achieve this very difficult procedure with a level of expertise and competence on the highest level. In addition, he was extremely nice and compassionate. What a fantastic experience that most likely will enhance my quality of life going forward.

There are not sufficient English language words to describe the genius level work of Dr. Ahmed. He has given me my life back. He is one of the most gifted, yet caring physicians I have ever encountered. He is patient and kind, and always ready to answer every question. We are truly blessed to have such a brilliant physician in our area. --

After being transferred, by ambulance, from another hospital, my dad was unable to breath and had been given a low chance of survival. We prayed, we cried, and began to try to accept the finality of life. Then Dr. Ahmed walked in and we knew almost immediately that we would walk out of the hospital as we came in, an entire family. He did a new procedure called tav-r, it was like flipping a switch. His kindness and smile is only overshadowed by his obvious intelligence/ability. Grateful!

Met with Dr. Ahmed and his team for a 3D TEE which can be daunting procedure for the patient. His team (nurse Brooke, CRNA Jason, and Anesthesiologist Dr. Patel) immediately put me at ease with good information and answers to all my questions. They work very well as a team and I highly recommend Princeton Baptist Medical center as they were "All" perfect from my admission to discharge. After being in several hospitals for A-Fib related issues (including Cleveland Clinic) I will return to PBMC

Dr Ahmed replaced my aortic valve last year. The procedure was done through my leg and I was able to go home 2 days after the procedure. I've been able to basically live a normal life since that time. I couldn't recommend him or his team enough, simply excellent.

Dr Ahmed fixed mothers heart valve and we are so grateful. She was told there was no option and would die. She is 86 years old and had been in 2 hospitals 5 times over 1 month for short breath when the tight heart valve was discovered. She was sent home to die and told her risk was too high. Finally we were referred to Dr Ahmed. He asked mother if she wanted him to try and he fixed the valve with mini-surgery. She went home in 2 days, we were shocked. She's doing so well. Dr Ahmed is the best.
