At her appointment, Michelle remembers a waiting room full of patients. Instead of rushing her through, Dr. Hameed took his time to listen to her and explain what he planned to do. With quiet confidence, Dr. Hameed examined her and determined that because she had not fully healed from the previous procedure, he would opt for an ileostomy instead. Michelle was terrified, but Dr. Hameed assured her he would resolve the issue and vastly improve her life.
True to his words, Dr. Hameed did indeed transform Michelle’s life. Once she healed from the first procedure, she had a successful colostomy reversal. Today, she is back to teaching, playing hockey and cycling. Her life with her husband Darren is full of fun and promise once again and she is beyond thankful.
Whenever Michelle has questions, Dr. Hameed always makes himself available to her. She says she feels so lucky and blessed to have come to NYGH and to have Dr. Hameed caring for her with such kindness and professionalism.
