Dr. Roohi M Ismail-Khan has the following 2 specialties
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- 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.

Dr. Khan is such an amazing Doctor.. and believe me ..I have had my fair share of Doctors :-l ..In the last 8 years ( stage IV breast cancer) I never once felt like I did not understand what was going on with my health. She is very thorough and takes her time explaining to her patients whats going on and what to expect. I honestly can say she is the best Doctor i have even had. Also her staff is AMAZING! shout out to Sandy my favorite nurse ;-) and Belline (ARNP).. they are so good at what they do. You are in good hands with Dr. Khan and her staff.
I went to Moffitt for a second opinion after my breast cancer diagnosis. I was initially put off by the business of the waiting room in the women's center but the minute I met Dr. Khan, I knew that she was the one I wanted to get me through chemo. Her and her nurse Sandy Santiago took all my calls, saw me immediately if I had an urgent issue, reassured me, and took care of all of me- mind AND body. And in the end, cured me of cancer. Dr. Khan is the reason I'm here to write this review today. The wait time can be long but that's only because Moffitt is the best place to be and the doctors are in high demand. Hold tight, she's worth the wait! They never rush once it's your turn so keep that in mind. Dr. Khan is just amazing.
Dr. Ismail-Khan has been treating my mom with metastatic cancer for the last 2 years. Upon her diagnosis, I was unclear of my mom' s long term prognosis and Dr. Ismail-Khan was very thorough in discussing her treatment options. she also shared them with our family in an unbelievable caring way where we knew she would do everything in her power to fight the cancer together with us a team. Her compassion for her patients is second to none and she is very well read and up to date on all available current treatments and clinical trials . Not only does she go and beyond to manage the cancer but also to manage the patient as well. She has been there for my mom and family every step of the way and hugged all of us as we are a part of her family. She is surrounded by an amazing staff from Moffitt who have the compassion Dr. Ismail-khan has for every patient. I am so thankful that we have had Dr. Ismail-khan with us on this journey with my mom and for her all of her efforts to give us more time with our mom. She is a true gift to Moffitt and the patients she cares for.
