Medical Board Suspend Dr. Syed Naeem Ahmed
A psychiatric evaluation of Dr. Ahmed was recently performed to determine his ability to practice medicine with reasonable care and safety. The psychiatric evaluation found that Dr. Ahmed cannot practice medicine with reasonable care and safety.
The Investigative Committee of the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners summarily suspended Cardiothoracic Surgeon Syed Naeem Ahmed, M.D.’s license to practice medicine in the state of Nevada pursuant to Nevada Revised Statute for failing to have the mental capacity to provide medical treatment with reasonable care and safety to patients.
Prior to the suspension the board staff presented sufficient evidence and information to an investigative committee of the Board.
The investigative committee has reasonably determined and believes that the health, safety and welfare of the public is at imminent risk of harm and that a summary suspension of Dr. Ahmed’s license to practice medicine in the State of Nevada is necessary to remove the risk of imminent harm to the health, safety and welfare of the public.
