Dr. Ahmed's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ahmed "Prior to joining Morris Hospital in the fall of 2013, I worked at Mercy Hospital in Des Moines where I was a practicing cardiologist for 12 years. My specialized training as an interventional cardiologist makes me qualified to perform advanced testing and procedures in the Morris Hospital Cath Lab, including angiography, angioplasty and stenting of the coronary and vascular arteries. I am board certified in internal medicine, nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, cardiovascular disease and interventional cardiology. I see patients at the Channahon, Morris and Ottawa offices. To schedule an appointment, call 815.705.1000."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ahmed "Every patient is important to me, whether I am seeing the patient for a routine follow-up or a complex heart condition.

I am committed to listening to my patients and spending time with them. This enables me to gain a better understanding of their condition and build trusting patient-physician relationships.

I believe it is a privilege to serve as a cardiologist because it gives me the opportunity to positively influence the lives of my patients."
