Dr. Mahmud believes in -
The above approach always improve Patient Outcome and Number of Pills for the patient
As a nephrologist, she advocates for quality of life for her patients.
We know there is no such thing as one-size-fits-all cure, so we never use a one-size-fits-all approach to your diagnosis or treatment plan.
Our goal is to empower you with an understanding of your condition and treatment plan. We do not prescribe ‘weight loss’ but we work with our patients towards the achievement of metabolical health and thereby enable them to lose weight

Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, located near the middle of your back just below the rib cage. There are about one million tiny structures called nephrons, present in each kidney, which filter blood. They remove waste products, salt and extra water from your body in the form of urine.
