- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
- 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.

He is a very kind and generous person. He listens to your problem and explains after hearing you. He gives bare minimum tests and you are free to do it from any location! Usually, they refer you somewhere to have a commission, which is kind of industry trend. My mother is his patient too for last year or so. He will accommodate you if this is urgent, which is the best part. The minus side of this is that you have a long waiting time. So, if you are anal about waiting, this is not your place. Staff is ok but don't expect vip service, as they are busy.
The doctor himself is a very profession person. No complaints about him. But if you decide to visit him then be prepared for the worst kind of office staff you could possibly imagine. The front desk lady even told me that I should change my doctor and and hung up the phone. NO ONE in the office ever apologized for their unprofessional conduct. We have had many instances where they were literally caught lying to our faces.
I have been under the care of Dr. Shamil Ahmed for a few years now and have being extremely satisfied with the care I have received. He is knowledgeable in his field and extremely loving and patience in his individual care he provides me every time I require to see him. The care I get reminds me of the great doctors of long ago.
