My greatest pleasure comes from the deep trust that develops between me and the patient when they are most vulnerable.”
Aziz Ahmad, M.D. is renowned for his surgical skills, his compassion and his sense of humor! Patients routinely heap praise on Dr. Ahmad, calling him “an angel,” “a surgeon's surgeon” and proclaiming, “I have never trusted another physician as much as I trust Dr. Ahmad.”
Specializing in colorectal cancer but also well-versed in procedures for stomach, liver, pancreatic and other cancers, Dr. Ahmad treats patients at our Glendora and Rancho Cucamonga facilities.
Dr. Ahmad received his medical degree from The Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University. He completed his internship and residency at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, followed by a surgical oncology fellowship at John Wayne Cancer Institute in Santa Monica, California.
Dr. Ahmad spent eight years with the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, a health care organization serving one million patients in the Bay Area. He joined the City of Hope to be part of its talented and dedicated staff.
“If there is help that I am not able to offer,” he says, “I am surrounded by caregivers who may be able to, with the same passion as myself.”
