Dr. Irfan Khalid has the following 2 specialties
- Pulmonary Disease
A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I took my mother (89 yrs old) to see him after her doctor recommended a sleep study. She has trouble falling asleep and has bad nightmares. Our first visit was ok, He kept on insisting that if you only sleep 3 hrs a night it's fine because your body will fall asleep when it needs to. I was skeptical. She had the sleep study done. It was quite an ordeal for her. All the wires, can't turn, probes stuck to her head, arms and in her nose. She was a trouper and got through it. We waited over a month to get an appointment for a review of the test. The staff are wonderful and very friendly. We waited 40 minutes for him to enter room. He went to his computer and started reading results. He then told my Mom she did great, she was able to sleep 3 hrs! We were both a little surprised how 3 out of 7 hrs is good. My mom said she was very uncomfortable and could not get any sleep. He insisted she DID sleep. I then said, 'Wait. Let me get this straight, you are only going to base this on one test'. He turned ugly. He said, Yes! Do you have a question? Yes, I said, I'm trying to figure.. He wouldn't let me finish. He: You're not asking a question! Me: I'm trying to, why are you getting so upset? He: because you are not asking anything! Me: well maybe you can come up with a question for me. He: I don't want to talk to you! Me: Why are you so defensive. We just want to know more facts. Fine don't talk to me, talk to my Mom. He: No, I won't talk to her. GET OUT! WHAT!!!!????? is this guy so insecure about his aptitude he can't answer a question. I then said I wanted a copy of test results. He told I can get the copy up front. I was furious. I went into the waiting area and said, Is this guy crazy, you can't question him! The ladies up front were very courteous and very quiet. Khalid tossed our paper over to them and said , NO Charge! No kidding no charge. The lady then handed me the copy and I thanked her. I feel for those ladies. I will make it my mission to make sure people are warned of this 'doctor'. Negative stars.. Rude, Arrogant, entitled, poorly educated on topics (see other reviews), and obviously protected by the medical community. What a shame we have doctors like this allowed to practice. It is also obvious some of his patients have been misdiagnosed which could have lead to their demise. Stay away from him
Dr Khalid put me in a 7 day coma, when I came out of it I asked him could I have Legionella, he said that doesn't even exist, do you think your a doctor ( I had legionella) One year later I was admitted through emergency at Thompson Peak. Dr Khalid put me in an 11 day coma he paralized me. When I recovered I asked could I have Valley fever, he asked where I got my medical degree, I had full blown Valley Fever complete with well formed noduals in the lungs. He is very smug and non caring I'm just lucky to be alive.
I completely agree with the latest low ratings by others. Dr. Khalid was rude and arrogant. But more seriously he did not give an accurate diagnosis..He did not review the lung X-rays or reports with me. He said no use telling you anything because you wouldn't understand it. I don't believe he even looked at my test results. I Wasted valuable time trying to get medical help from him. Now I have another pulmonary Doctor and realize even more how poorly I was diagnosed and treated..
