Dr Khan is a Specialist Paediatrician, wife and mom. Aside for general paediatrics, her special interests include: Neonatology, Paediatric Immunology, Allergies and Respiratory disorders in Paediatrics.
Dr Khan decided at the very young age of 9 that caring for children was what she wanted to do with her life. That passion for healing drove Dr Khan to pursue medicine as a career and she completed her MBChB at Nelson R Mandela School of Medicine at the age of 23. She then went on to do her internship at Frere Hospital in East London and her community service in EG Usher Memorial Hospital in Kokstad. During that period Dr Khan spent most of her time in Paediatrics and this motivated her to apply for a post graduate training post in Paediatrics in KZN.
She went on to do 4 years of post-graduate studying and training in the public-sector in KZN. In the final year, Dr Khan completed and passed the final part of her exams in Pretoria.
After completing her post grad training in paediatrics, Dr Khan worked as a specialist paediatrician at RK Khan Hospital for 2 years.
During this time she worked in general paediatrics & neonatology and, she taught medical students and future paediatricians. Dr Khan also wrote 3 journal articles that were printed in the Paediatric Quarterly.
In February 2013 Dr Khan moved from the public sector into private and opened her practice at Hillcrest Private Hospital.
Her qualifications include MBChB, FCPaedSA, PALS (Paediatric Advanced Life Support).
Dr Khan became a mum in 2016 and the lessons from motherhood have only strengthened her knowledge in paediatrics and emphasised the importance of holistic child health.
