I have been seeing Dr. Sajjad for close to 10 years. I feel that under his care, I was able to prolong the health of my failing kidneys He was so helpful in guiding and counseling me thru the transplant process. I continued care under the KHC team at the Christ hospital for a year before returning to Dr. Sajjad. I truly trust Dr. Sajjad and am thankful for his care over the years.
Tahir Sajjad, MD, FACP
Tahir Sajjad is a nephrologist working with the Kidney and Hypertension Center for the past 20 years. He is board certified in Nephrology and continues to actively participate in educational activities to keep his skills and knowledge up to date.
Dr. Sajjad has been involved in teaching medical residents at Good Samaritan Hospital and served on the Resident Evaluation committee for several years. For him, educating other physicians is important, and he routinely engages in lecturing local physicians on relevant topics pertaining to his field of specialization.
Dr. Sajjad takes care of patients with kidney disease because he finds it very fulfilling as a physician. Patients with kidney disease typically have multiple and complex medical problems, and each patient presents a unique challenge that he finds intriguing and motivates him to stay abreast of the latest advances. Patients with chronic kidney disease require long-term care and follow-ups, and it allows him to develop long-term professional relationships with his patients.
Dr. Sajjad feels comfortable treating all sorts of kidney disease and patients with difficult to control blood pressure, but his main area of interest is chronic kidney disease management, educating patients on how to slow down the progression of their disease and mitigating complications of chronic kidney disease, including bone disease and anemia.
Dr. Sajjad listens to his patients very intently and explains things in a very simple way, making them educated on their disease states so they can become integral players in their own care.
His patients and their families seem to like this aspect of his care the most, and that is what sets him apart from his peers.
