    Board Certified Medical Oncologist and Hematologist, Delshad Ahmad, MD, is dedicated to providing personalized cancer care for his patients and their families. He received his medical degree from Damascus University in Syria, where he also attended a residency program in internal medicine. Once in the United States, he completed a residency program in internal medicine at the Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan. He then went on to complete a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan. Currently, Dr. Ahmad is the Director of Thoracic Oncology at Eisenhower Lucy Curci Cancer Center (LCCC).

    In his younger years, Dr. Ahmad excelled in sciences and coupled with his desire to help people and encouragement from his family he decided to pursue a medical degree while at university. During rotations in his residency program, he was drawn to the specialty of oncology (cancer) and hematology (blood diseases). “Oncology/Hematology offered me the greatest opportunity to positively affect patient’s lives,” states Dr. Ahmad. “It is a field that is in constant change, with new protocols and treatments always on the forefront of study. I am a constant learner and knew that this specialty of medicine would always challenge me.” The specialty of oncology/hematology was personal as well for Dr. Ahmad. While in medical school and residency, a close cousin was battling cancer and he became very involved with her treatment and care.

    With regard to his approach to patient care, Dr. Ahmad strives to provide patients with all the options, possibilities and treatments with regard to treating their disease. “Every patient is unique and every treatment is unique,” states Dr. Ahmad. “I want to understand my patients' goals, provide them with the information they need to accomplish those and partner with them in developing their treatment plan. I am with them all along their journey toward health.”

    Dr. Ahmad sees patients in Rancho Mirage, La Quinta and Yucca Valley.
