Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Ahmed has ever received is: “Be yourself!” The most exotic places he has visited are Peru and Tibet. As a child, he wanted to become a pilot because he was fascinated by the idea of flying the skies.

​I strive to provide the best possible, and compassionate, care to my patients by applying medical knowledge and listening to them with empathy. This is the key to gaining the trust and confidence of patients for the management of chronic rheumatic disease.
