Cardiology | Male

Dr. Syed Ahmed, MD
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.
