Philosophy

Patient care is of utmost importance to me, and I strive to provide compassionate, personalized, leading-edge and the best possible care for every patient I see, and at every step of their cancer journey.  Cancer is a diagnosis that affects not only the patient but the entire family, and I believe in taking care of the patient and their family as a whole, and not just the cancer.

Personal

When not working, Dr Ahmed enjoys time with her family including her two kids.
