Dr. Allauddin Khan has the following 4 specialties
- Clinical Neurophysiology
- Sleep Medicine
A sleep medicine specialist is specially trained in diagnosing and treating disorders involving sleep.
Sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and insomnia are very common and can often cause other serious health issues, such as depression, asthma, and migraines. Sleep medicine specialists often work in sleep centers where they observe a patient while sleeping and monitor brain waves, behavior, and vital signs in order to identify the causes of sleep disturbance, or an inability to sleep (insomnia).
Sleep medicine specialists treat patients through advising on sleep hygiene, providing cognitive behavioral therapy, using light therapy, or medical sleep aides.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

Dr. Khan diagnosed me after being run-around for almost 3 years by many other physicians, universities, etc. He was my last, best hope, and since his diagnosis I have been under active treatment. Without Dr. Khan's expertise, it is likely that I would have remained undiagnosed, and would very likely be bed-bound or worse. Suffice it to say that in my opinion, he saved my life.
Dr. Khan found the cause for my son's heart stopping multiple times. After spending a week in a Cardiac ICU, Cardiologists did further testing and started treatment but my son's heart stopped again. Dr. Khan not only felt confident that he knew the cause that the cardiologists couldn't find but he confirmed it with neurological testing. He reviewed the disorder, the test results and all the steps needed to prevent this from happening again. Dr. Khan made us feel like my son was his only patient making sure my son understood what he needed to do. Not only is my son's overall health better but his heart has not stopped again in 4 years. This man knows his stuff...I trust him with my life...he certainly saved my son's.
