Professor Dr. Irshad Ahmad
As both a pediatrician and a devoted parent, I believe in delivering the healthcare that I expect for my own family. Despite limited resources we provide each child with individual attention, care and gentleness. My team endeavors to improve the lives of our patients and their families and to provide clinical expertise to parents as well as other health professionals.
On academic front, our curriculum provides student centered, integrated, system based learning. We make sure that both our undergraduate as well as postgraduate students practice their knowledge through compassion while adhering to high morals and principles.
Our mission is to provide compassionate care for the health and well being of infants, children and youth in a family centered environment. As healthcare professionals we are committed to excellence and strive to bring an efficient and cost-effective practice to the children and the families of our community. Our physicians and nurses along with the ancillary staff, work as a team to improve the lives of our patients and their families.
