JOIN US to “meet & greet” Dr. Nasiya Ahmed of Village Physicians ~ Nov. 20th at 6pm

JOIN US to “meet & greet” Dr. Nasiya Ahmed of Village Physicians. Dr. Ahmed recently joined the Treemont Family to offer her services as an on-site primary care physician specializing in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, and Palliative Care. Dr. Ahmed will see residents through the entire continuum of care offered here at Treemont as well as Memorial Hermann Memorial City Hospital, then back to Treemont Independent Living or to Treemont Health Care Center if a rehab stay is needed. The idea is for your doctor to follow you wherever you go. For an on-site appointment at Treemont, contact Dr. Ahmed’s office at (832) 408-8575.

A key benefit of having Senior Allegiance as Treemont’s Preferred Provider Home Care agency is that this home health care company can arrange to have its patients seen by a doctor at Treemont. Senior Allegiance has long used Dr. Zaharia for Treemont doctor visits, with Senior Allegiance's Sheila Quia providing support for these visits. With a growing community, we are pleased to announce that Senior Allegiance has secured another outstandinig physician to do doctor visits on campus.

Dr. Ahmed, a native Houstonian and graduate of Univeristy of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, completed her residency and fellowship at the University of Arizona in Tucson. She is board certified in internal medicine, geriatrics, and palliative care. Dr. Ahmed was formerly Associate Professor at the McGovern Medical School in the Division of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine where she was medical director of their inpatientACE (Acute Care of the Elderly) Unit and was heavily involved in grant funded research as well as nursing and physician education, locally, nationally, and internationally. More recently she worked at Intercede Health where she was Medical Director for their Transitional Care Clinics, caring for patients with difficult to manage chronic illnesses. Dr. Ahmed is passionate about health and wellness and her goal is to use her multidisciplinary geriatric skills to promote health and wellness in all adults.

Dr. Ahmed founded Village Physicians with the vision of incorporating modern technology into a neighborhood doctors office to offer quality health care to adults throughout their life. Value is placed on the doctor-patient relationship, offering convenient and longer appointment times as well as after-hour physician services. Dr. Ahmed believes in continuity of care, offering services in doctors office, home, as well as through telemedicine. Dr. Ahmed’s goal is to educate and empower the patient. She accepts Traditional Medicare.

Dr. Ahmed has partnered with Senior Allegiance to provide an in-house service for Treemont residents. Beginning in August, she will be doing in-house visits for residents who wish to utilize her as their Primary Care Physician. Senior Allegiance will assist with coordinating with Dr. Ahmed any assistance needed  prior to the visit (for example: blood work, x-ray, medication refill, or setting up an appointment.)
