Dr. Iftikhar A Khan has the following 5 specialties
- Neuromuscular Medicine
- 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.

I would not recommend anyone to this doctor after how I was treated after my stroke. I ended up ICU and his first remark to me was, "Got a little groggy,eh?" I was unconscious, so yeah make fun of me. One week after my stroke, he told me I could return to work which was highly stressful and very demanding. He said that he would "allow" me more time if I would see a neuropsychologist for an evaluation. I showed him performance duties for my job which I could no longer even understand let alone do. I had to retire and after 2-3 years, I got up the courage to seek help and found I had PBA and would never be able to work again at the job I had, which I knew back then, but Dr. Khan would not listen to me even when I would beg and cry for him to try to help me. It has been years since I last saw him and hope to not see him again. He is dismissive, misguided, arrogant and uncaring of what impact a stroke really has even if a person isn't visibly handicapped. Good luck if you go to him, you will need it. He cost me my deserved disability because he would not work with me to help me at a most desperate time in my life. Income was cut in half when it didn't need to happen. I did seek another neurologist who declared I would never be able to do my job and the new neurologist would have helped me with proving it, but I had already retired by then. I would not wish this to happen to anyone else.
He instantly wanted to change pain meds to Lyrica, which I have documented proof it & sickens me. And he wouldn't look at the 8 years of detailed records I have from my others doctors (all local). Wants to perform unnecessary procedures. As soon as I told him have been using low doses of generic opiates for 7 years, his mission was to change that, though there is no basis for it. I passed all the different types (hair, blood, urine, saliva, mouth swab) with documented proof all these years, but he laughed and said go take them if I have "a source", but he won't prescribe narcotics...unless its methadone. A proper liver test should show what I was taking was appropriate. Pharmacists here said my dose was low, and don't understand why it would be an issue. Its a personal thing on his end. And he gave me 4 minutes in the room, after I waited for 25 with only 1 other patient in the waiting room...he took my money, don't let him or other drs take your...out these drs publicly that do not give you a chance to prove yourself as a model patient.
