Soon after Dr. Jamil Ahmed stood before TV cameras two weeks ago and told how his brain-injured patient had snapped out of a stupor lasting almost 10 years, the telephone calls and e-mails started pouring in. Everybody wants a word with Ahmed, 43, who’s just three years removed from his residency training in Boston after earning a medical degree in Pakistan. There are doctors calling about patients. There are family members of brain-injured people asking if Ahmed can talk to their doctors.
