Given the rapidly changing and advancing landscape for multiple sclerosis treatments over the last few years, Dr. Mahmoud’s fellowship training experience allows her to utilize the newest emerging therapies and tailor treatment to each individual patient as there is no single treatment approach that is suitable for every individual . Dr. Mahmoud is excited to serve the Kansas City community.
