Asif Mahmood For Insurance Commissioner

The physician, not the politician

I have based all my life’s work on a single principle taught to me by my parents: that helping others is our highest calling. As a physician I am proud to say that I have never charged a patient who didn't have insurance. I’m running for California Insurance Commissioner to bring quality health care to every Californian. I’ll take on Pharmaceutical and Insurance companies who are putting profits before people.
