He has authored and co-authored a number of cardiology posters and publications and has served as a presenter at multiple cardiology events.
Dr. Ahmed is a pioneer in cardiac post acute and transitional care in cardiology. His practice, Cardiac Vision and along with Cardiorenal Therapeutics, is focused on providing on site cardiology services to SNF's, ALF, ILF, and independent homes with no fees for service. He is now in over 50 facilities in the Jacksonville area extending all the way down to Orlando. There is no other practice in the state and possibly in the nation that offers these cardiac services. Dr. Ahmed is always looking for innovative ideas to provide complete cardiac care on site with no cost.
A former competitive athlete, Dr. Ahmed now enjoys recreational sports, basketball, weightlifting, golf, and surfing. His background in sports is what fuels his desire to do cardiac screening for all types of athletes from recreational to professional. Currently, he serves as the cardiologist for University of North Florida and the nearby universities. He ensures athletes of all abilities receive appropriate cardiovascular evaluation and the training guidance needed to enable them to compete safely and at their highest ability.
