In her practice as a family medicine physician, Dr. Khan believes her most important role is to help her patients make informed decisions that positively affect their life and their family. She emphasizes a healthy lifestyle and preventive medicine, modeled on Benjamin Franklin's observation - "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
"I was inspired to become a physician when I became sick as a child and experienced the selfless dedication of physicians who saved my life," said Dr. Khan. "I chose family medicine because it allows me to care for entire families and practice the spectrum of medicine, from pediatrics to geriatrics."
After earning her medical degree from Dow Medical College in Karachi, Pakistan, Dr. Khan completed her internship at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Rockford. She completed her residency at the University of Illinois College of Medicine in its rural training program.
In her free time, Dr. Khan enjoys gardening and spending time with her husband, who is also a physician, and their son. In addition to English, Dr. Khan also speaks fluent Urdu and Hindi.
