Specialties

Dr. Shakeel Ahmed has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Horrible communication

Waited for an hour and 15 minutes and was then told that the guy who does the ultrasounds wasn't there and that the staff haven't been to reach him.

A genuinely caring doctor

Dr. Ahmed is so kind and caring. When he found that I had a serious problem he called me at 10:30pm on a Saturday night to talk with me about the results of the CT scan that had been performed earlier that day. Thank you Dr. Ahmed for taking care of me.
