Dr. Ashar H Khan has the following 3 specialties
- 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 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.
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.

I'm so happy I've found this doctor and my mother just as happy if not more. Dr. Khan is the first Doctor that cared about me as an individual instead of just another text book case. Today I go for my EKG and blood work to find out what medicines are not working well with me, which are the one's responsible for making me pass out while walking, causing my partial plate on my upper teeth to break into a few pieces causing a one inch gash that goes all the way through. I'm really hoping that he can figure out what is going on with me and we can start adjusting med's accordingly. I will keep everyone updated.. Thank you Dr. Kahn, you've started the process of elimination which no one else had time to do.
This morning I tried to make a first time appointment for my husband. A lady by the name of Jennifer answered the phone and when I told her I needed to set up an appointment for my husband I get back a huge sigh and she literally slammed the phone down and hung up on me. Thinking how crazy this was I called a second time thinking maybe some sort of misunderstanding but nope I call back to her giving me a huge attitude while laughing all the while. Sorry- this company WILL NOT be receiving my business and I will be sure to let this Dr. Know exactly how this lady treats his company. When I had asked her if I could speak to the Dr. I was told he was on vacation for a week....I would suggest finding a different Dr. I know we will be at least until this rude secretary has found a new place of employment!!!
