New Gastroenterologist in South Hill

VCU Health CMH opens Gastrointestinal Services

Ahmed Hamed, MD

VCU Health Community Memorial Hospital is pleased to announce the opening of VCU Health CMH Gastrointestinal Services. This practice provides evaluation and treatment of a full array of gastrointestinal problems: digestive health illnesses, colon cancer screening, inflammatory bowel disease and liver disease.

Our affiliation with VCU Health in Richmond means easy access to the Hume-Lee Transplant Center for those requiring a higher level of care and the benefits of the newly established Stravitz-Sanyal Institute for Liver Disease and Metabolic Health for clinical trials, research and education.

Ahmed Hamed, M.D., is the new gastroenterologist at VCU Health CMH Gastrointestinal Services. He comes from a family of physicians. Both his parents are doctors in Egypt, and his two sisters practice pathology and obstetrics/gynecology in the United States. Hamed chose gastroenterology because it is a rewarding discipline that allows him to catch cancer and improve his patients’ quality of life.

Caring comes naturally for Hamed so he treats his patients like family.

"We believe a patient is a person to be cared for, not a medical condition to be treated," he said.

Hamed earned his Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery from Alexandria University in Alexandria, Egypt. He completed a residency in internal medicine and a gastroenterology and hepatology fellowship at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. He speaks English, Arabic and German.

In his spare time, Hamed enjoys working out, playing sports and spending time with family. He prefers to keep a low profile, but that is difficult due to his height. He played professional basketball, so his team player mentality overlaps in his practice.

"We value the input and participation of our patients and their families and hope to empower them to improve their health with easily understandable information," he said.

Make an appointment with Dr. Hamed by calling (434) 584-5539. The new practice is located on the second floor of the C.A.R.E. Building at 1755 N. Mecklenburg Avenue in South Hill.
