Dr. Mohamed Ahmed partners with his patients’ families during their journey. He identifies caregivers' concerns and goals and works with them toward the best possible outcomes for patients.
Dr. Ahmed became a doctor because of his uncle, who was his idol and mentor as the only physician in his family. He admired his humility, humbleness, wealth of knowledge, and his unlimited willingness to help anyone in need.
He considers our area one of the most beautiful regions in the country and is captivated by the natural landscape that blends the mountain views with the sky. Dr. Ahmed describes himself as a laid back and simple person who enjoys hiking, running, listening to music, cooking, and going to the gym.
Dr. A. Chester Ogborn chose medicine so that he could make a difference and interact with people in a meaningful way on a daily basis. He chose to join ETSU Health because of his love for the beauty of this region, and because he can teach and pass on his knowledge. He also enjoys that questions from students and residents force him to understand things in a deeper way than he might on his own.
Dr. Ogborn feels it is important for pediatric patients to participate in the conversation during their visit. At every age, he makes an effort to talk to his patients by explaining things and hearing what they think and feel. His ultimate goal is to have them become happy, independent adults who know how to take care of their own health. Even when a child has an incurable ailment, Dr. Ogborn works with their family to relieve suffering, help the child to reach their full potential, and to act as a partner in their journey through life.
