Mussaber Ahmad, DO, specializes in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology, the study of electrical activities in the heart.
Dr. Ahmad has extensive experience in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of heart and blood vessel problems in patients. His expertise involves testing for and treating abnormal heart rhythms. When needed, he implants and manages devices that regulate heartbeat, such as pacemakers and defibrillators. These interventions can improve patients’ quality of life.
A history of coronary disease in his family inspired Dr. Ahmad to become a doctor. He lost both his grandfathers to coronary artery disease (CAD). Prior to his first fellowship in general cardiology, he was a practicing internist. During his general cardiology fellowship, he developed an interest in electrophysiology after seeing how interlinked arrhythmia and device management were in improving cardiac status in patients. Additional training as an electrophysiology fellow enabled him to further hone these skills.
Developing a connection with each patient is of primary importance to Dr. Ahmad. He helps ensure that patients and care partners have a thorough understanding of the medical issues involved so that together they can come to a mutual decision about treatment plans.
In his spare time, Dr. Ahmad likes to hike and play tennis, and is a collector of coins and stamps. He also enjoys working on DIY home improvement projects.
