Ahmad S. Agha, MD, FAAP
Greetings, with love to all my patients; Many of you are wondering where Dr. Agha disappeared to. I did not disappear. On Monday, Feb 6th, 2023, I suffered a stroke that paralyzed my left side while preparing to go to my clinic. The stroke did not affect my cognitive functions and speech, thanks to God. The next day, I was transferred from Ponca Alliance Hospital to OKC St. Anthony Hospital and stayed in a hospital rehabilitation facility for over one month. Later, I was assigned to Dallas to attend the Neuro Day Rehab of (Baylor, Scott & White Hospital) and have been there for the last three months. Since the stroke incident, I have been wheelchair-bound, and with the rehab, I can now walk with a cane with some assistance.
When some of you asked me, “When am I retiring?” I always answered, “Not yet!” However, with my current physical disability, I cannot attend to patients in an office setting. I may continue to do consulting work or telemedicine.
Over the last forty-six years, I have greatly enjoyed serving the pediatric needs of families of Ponca City and its surrounding areas. It was my joy and privilege to help three generations. I did not intend to leave you suddenly, yet strokes are unpredictable and can change one’s life’s plans. The pediatric clinic established by myself, along with Dr. Jane Thomason, will continue to serve the community with Dr. Walker and Dr. Sinton and the experienced Pediatric Nurse Practitioners Brenda Peters and Lacy McNett.
God bless you all, and thank you for trusting me throughout the years! Dr. Ahmad Saleh Agha M.D. The “Genuine OKIE”
