While Dr. Ahsan was growing up, she always wanted to be a doctor as her
mother told her stories about how her father wanted his youngest daughter
to become a doctor but he passed away just before she was born. Ever since,
she felt a strong obligation to appease his wish. She believe that we
as human beings are on earth to perform God's work and is grateful
to be able to do that by practicing medicine and improving the quality
of life for her patients.
Dr. Ahsan's philosophy of practice is that relationship is a partnership
that is nurtured around preventing and treating diseases.
She likes to ask her patients about the events that led them to their need
to visit the clinic. She encourages open communication with her patients
by carefully listening to them and their thoughts and ideas to obtain
the best thought-out treatment plan. This is how she is able to provide
comprehensive medical care for each individual patient.
The most important aspect of the physician/patient relationship is one
of trust and respect. As a physician, Dr. Ahsan believes it is critical
that patients discuss matters in their personal life in order for her
to better understand the root causes and diagnosis.
Ideally, she would like her patients to remember the "first visit"
as a new contract on discipline/"will power" and long life.
What she likes most about Family Medicine is that it allows her to see
patients of all ages; from children to elderly, and treat a wide variety
of diseases from different specialties, surgery to women's health.
Dr. Ahsan loves to practice evidence based medicine and focuses on preventative
care in addition to treating acute problems. She enjoys treating patients
to get better or heal their ailments that was the reason they originally
sought her care.
Her training at USC/LAC and practicing medicine in an outpatient setting
in the greater Los Angeles area for the last ten years had made her a
more experienced and effective family medicine physician.
She lets patients and their families discuss their knowledge of treatment
options given our internet age and educates them on the safest and most
effective treatment options. She has come to St. Joseph Health with great
enthusiasm and looks forward to serving families of the Orange County
area. Dr. Ahsan is thankful for being part of this blessed community.
Dr. Ahsan is married and a mother of two beautiful daughters. She enjoys
family medicine as a way of life as she is able to see the needs of family
health and well-being daily as a mother and a spouse. After working in
a community-based clinic for the past ten years in Los Angeles, she decided
to join Mission Heritage Medical Group to settle down in a high-performing
public education environment for her children and to be able to assist
growing healthcare needs in the local community. In her free time, she
enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, listening to country music,
traveling and staying current on family medicine.
