Specialties

Dr. Maqbool A Ahmed has the following 4 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Although Dr. Ahmed did spend time with me at my appts, I felt like he really didn't understand how scared I was to begin with being told I have cancer. Followups I felt he acted as if I was nothing. I would tell him I am scared, or ask questions and he would answer in ways that made me feel like I hadn't been through something really traumatic, to me. I had asked for another PET Scan to be 100% sure there was nothing, but he told me not necessary and don't worry about it. Yet, I've met other people who have had followup PET Scans after surgery, chemo, etc. I never felt 'compassion' from him. He was very non chaulant (sp). It's not like I wanted him to cry, or be sad, or negative, I wanted to know I mattered and what I had been through was alot and how great I did. You know - boost my morale up.

His front desk staff were awful! There were so many HIPPA violations I heard at everyone of my appointments. They were definitely NEVER EVER compassionate, empathetic, towards me. My first time for my first chemo, I was scared to death. I expected to see friendly/empathetic people but instead got 2 girls who were busy talking to each other, or reading, or ignoring me, and then acted like I was really putting a kink in their day. EVERY TIME I WENT THERE IT WAS LIKE THAT - and the HIPPA VIOLATIONS - I wonder how many times my information was said loud enough for every one to hear. If I didn't have to go there for chemo so many times, I would have said something to them. But they were so inconsiderate, I didn't want to take a chance on them thinking of some other degrading way to treat/talk to me.

Highly Dissatisfied

Highly incompetent. Misdiagnosed cancer and order expensive treatment that was totally unnecessary. He does not stay current with his medical knowledge and has a snarky bedside manner.

Excellent doctor. Honest with you no matter what the question is. His nurses are quick to call you right back if they can't answer the phone when you call. The doctor and nurses are the best in my opinion in Evansville. Evansville needs more doctor's like Dr. Ahmed who will go that extra mile to get the diagnosis, if some of the doctor's that I seen before Dr Ahmed would of listened to me I wouldn't be terminally ill.
