Nice to Meet You

"The most rewarding part of my job is witnessing a patient’s quality of life improve significantly. When we can sleep and breathe better, we can redirect our energies toward the things that we love to do."

My name is Dr. Yasmina Ahmed, and I am a Sinus and Sleep Surgeon at ADVENT. I decided to pursue a medical career after witnessing my father having a heart attack when I was a young child. I realized then how important life is, which gave me the desire to care for and improve people’s lives. I chose the field of ENT because of the connection to our daily lives – breathing, sleeping, smelling – there are many areas for impactful improvements.

I chose to practice at ADVENT for many reasons, but the main reason is our innovative approach to helping people sleep and breathe better. Patients are often surprised to learn that their snoring issues may come from the nose. That is why the first step we take at ADVENT is to look at The Breathing Triangle® – which encompasses your two nostrils and mouth. Once we address your nose, you will find everything works better, and you can spend more time and energy doing the things you love.

As my patient, you and I will be on a team to improve your breathing. I want to ensure that you feel heard and you know you can trust me to help you feel better. Every morning on my way to work, I ask myself, “How can I help someone today?”. It is my honor to be able to change your life for the better. I want to give you the ability to redirect your energy toward your passions and spending time with the people you love.

How I Can Help

"I went to ENT's for years and they did very little to help my sinus issues. They just prescribed nasal sprays for years, one after another. Advent was great. All appointments were very detailed and informative. They spend a lot of time looking into my sinus problems. My breathing is so much better but not perfect after my procedure. I will take the improvement they gave me any day over the ENT doctors I saw before."

This place has literally changed my life. I have been a lifelong sufferer of sinus problems. Through the years, I have tried multiple over the counter remedies, seen several ENT specialists, and had a majorly invasive sinus surgery. None of it has ever really helped, and the surgery made it worse. I went to ADVENT...and I'm breathing more clearly than I ever thought possible. They truly delivered significant results. I am and will forever be grateful for the major improvement in the quality of my life.

This is a 1-stop-shop for issues dealing with those miserable nose, sinus and throat and breathing issues with lots of solutions and info to make an informed choice. Don’t waste your money on "a" specialist when it's all here under one roof and very reasonable cost wise. All we know is to go to Sleep centers that will slap miserable CPAP machines on you which only help with sleep disorders. Allergists give you sprays. Helpful....but ADVENT addresses several areas of sinus-nose-throat concerns. My Family member was given a Balloon Sinoplasty because sinuses were in bad shape from all previous nonsense and chronic drowning in mucus. He back at work next day with mild discomfort for 2 days. Major improvements! Was told if this didnt help as much as hoped, other things could be assessed. Very nice staff. Terrific follow up aftercare and support all along the way. very professional.

My fun fact is that I can solve a Rubik’s Cube in under two minutes.
