Bio

Basher Atiquzzaman, MD (referred to by his patients as “Dr. Atiq”) is board certified in gastroenterology, and earned his medical degree from Chittagong Medical College in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Dr. Atiq completed his residency in internal medicine at Long Island College Hospital, Brooklyn, New York, where he also completed his fellowship in gastroenterology. Dr. Atiq is a member of the American College of Gastroenterology, the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, the Florida Gastroenterology Society, the American College of Physicians and the American Medical Association. Dr. Atiq specializes in helping patients suffering from digestive issues such as Acid Reflux Disease, Stomach and Colon Cancer, and Barret's Esophagus throughought Kissimmee and St. Cloud.

As a premier gastroenterologist in Kissimmee, Dr. Atiq is a physician you can put your trust in. He has over 20 years of clinical experience and has served the Central Florida community for nearly a decade. Dr. Atiq performs all procedures at the endoscopy suites located at Florida Hospital Kissimmee. he will also follow up on all of his patients while they are admitted to the hospital. Patients from all across Central Florida come to Dr. Atiq's Heart Burn Center for advanced care and treatment. It is the only dedicated heart burn center in Central Florida equipped with advanced technology specifically for heart burn-related conditions.

Dr. Atiq's burning passion for his specialty began when he was in the 8th grade in Bangladesh, India. After his uncle passed away at the age of 42 from stomach cancer, Dr. Atiq felt inspired to pursue the field of medicine closest to his heart. With the support of his family and his father, also a physician, Dr. Atiq was fortunate to receive a full scholarship for high school and medical school. After completing his residency in Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Atiq met his wife and eventually moved to Florida to settle down and expand his practice. In his time away from the office and hospital, Dr. Atiq enjoys spending time with his wife and their two children. He is an avid gardener and enjoys tending to his tropical fruit trees, which include mango, lychee, grapefruit and starfruit. Dr. Atiq also loves to sing and is a member of a small group in Orlando that sings and plays Indian music. He says music fufills him in a similar way to medical healing. "It is a way to bring joy to others," he says.
