Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ahmed "For me, there is a special gratification that comes with being a surgeon. Being a surgeon requires clinical knowledge and technical skill. While I certainly take pride in that, I believe it's the emotional connection with patients that elevates surgery from a science to an art. I am well aware that surgery is among the most stressful experiences of a patient's life. In my practice, I seek to address both the physical and emotional well-being of my patients and strive to provide a compassionate and caring environment for their surgical care. Just as I stay up-to-date on the latest surgical innovations such as minimally invasive techniques and improved pain control, I also seek to develop personally. Living overseas as the child of a U.S. Foreign Service Officer has left me with an insatiable appetite for travel and I continue to see as much of the world as I can. Above all, I value the time I spend with my family; my wife Liz, and our three children Matt, Nick and Chris."

Had an inguinal herni repair and could not be happier with Dr. Ahmed, his staff and the quick scheduling of my surgery. I’ve had minimal pain and would highly recommend him.
