Mohammed Zakariah AhmedFounder & Chief Mentor
With in-depth knowledge of international markets for Patient Acquisition and an intricate understanding of cultural sensitivities and customs, Mr. Zakariah is an independent health advisor with 19+ years of experience in Hospital Marketing and building brands internationally.
I believe that quite often, patients do not get access to what is best for them, and the reason isn’t necessarily the cost.

It is our mission to help each and every prospect gain the highest quality of care, satisfaction, and exceptional patient experience.
