    Pleural Mesothelioma

Ahmed talks often about the benefits of the multidisciplinary approach in the care of each patient he serves at the Cleveland Clinic.

“I tell my patients, we will work as a team to care of your cancer. Look at us like a circle around you,” he said. “We each look at you from a different set of eyes, from different angles, and together we will be able to provide you with the best possible care.”

Ahmed joined the Cleveland Clinic in 2017 after spending the previous three years in Orlando, where he served as medical director of the Cellular Therapy Laboratory at Florida Hospital and as an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Central Florida.

He has been lauded for an ability to bond personally with patients, giving them confidence their care is important to him.

“I often tell each patient, ‘I will provide the same service to you that I would provide for my brother or sister, mother or daughter,’” he said. “We think of each patient as a person, not as a case.”

Treats a Range of Malignancies

Ahmed attended medical school at Menoufia University in Egypt and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.

He did his residency at Brown University and Memorial Hospital of Rhode Island. He finished his fellowship at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, where he began his career.

He is certified in internal medicine for medical oncology and hematology.

At the Cleveland Clinic, he handles a variety of roles, including cancer screening, genetic testing, chemotherapy treatment, bone marrow biopsy and aspiration.

Ahmed sees patients with lung cancer, bladder cancer, breast cancer, mesothelioma, ovarian cancer and central nervous system malignancies.

His patient reviews, since arriving at the Cleveland Clinic, have been stellar.

“Dr. Ahmed has been by far the best doctor I have ever had,” one patient said in a May 2018 review. “The dedication, professionalism, and interest he demonstrates to patients is not only very informative, but he helps one understand clearly step by step what is going on, and what needs to be done to correct the issue. I am extremely satisfied with his care.”
