Dr. Shakeel Kahn has the following 3 specialties
- Pain Management
A pain management specialist is a physician with advanced knowledge and training in diagnosing and treating pain. These doctors do not come from one particular discipline, but rather use their respective backgrounds to contribute a varied approach to the field of pain management.
These specialists use their different skills and training in pain management to treat pain stemming from different causes - whether it's neuropathic pain or headache, or the result of injury, a surgical procedure, cancer or another illness.
Pain management specialists are primarily trained as anesthesiologists, physiatrists, interventional radiologists, neurologists, osteopaths, or primary care physicians.
- Bariatric Medicine
Bariatric medicine focuses on the causes, prevention and treatment of obesity. Bariatric specialists are trained in medically supervised weight loss and the management of obesity as a chronic condition. These specialists are skilled in various disciplines that help patients lose weight and obtain optimal health.
The field encompasses dieting, exercise and behavioral therapy, anti-obesity medication, pharmacotherapy and surgery. Bariatric specialists might be from surgical backgrounds and perform obesity-related operations or they might be nutrition and hormone focused, prescribing diet and exercise plans as well as weight loss medications.
Patients defined as obese or having unhealthy Body Mass Indices (BMI) have much greater risk of heart disease, diabetes, asthma, sleep apnea, hypertension, many types of cancer and chronic musculoskeletal problems.
One subspecialty of bariatrics is the focus on the correlation between obesity and mortality.
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Doctor Kahn is the best doctor in town, simply put. He is knowledgeable and explained everything to me. He is always available to answer my questions and concerns, unlike another pain management doctor in the area that didn't care about me or even try to make me healthy....his staff just would never let me talk to the doctor, even though I could see him hiding in back room under some sheets for the C arm machine. All I would hear his staff "Ashley"....not her real name talk of the parties, drugs and people in town she has been with. I am so glad to be away from that doctor and now with Dr. Kahn.
Dr. Kahn was the only physician to listen to my problems and prescribe what worked best for me to have an excellent quality of life without pain. I know he has had to throw out liars seeking drugs unlike other doctors in the area who don't bother to check out their patients. People who dis Dr. Kahn are nothing but criminals caught abusing their medications for criminal purposes.
Dr. Kahn is a wonderful, caring and compassionate doctor. My mother was dying and he actually came to our house to see her to make sure she was being taken care of even though hospice was involved. My entire family sees him and we consider him more than just our doctor.
Went to see Shakeel Kahn with a lump in mu armpit. He misdiagnosed me. Spent a good 7 months doing nothing except give me antibiotics. First he said he couldn't feel anything. Then he said I had a wild hair. And then said it was an infected cyst which is why he gave me the antibiotics. I asked him several times if it could be cancer. He said no each time. I also told him that I was feeling a lump on my breast. He never gave me a breast exam. Then he dropped me as a patient. After finding a good doctor I have found out that I do have breast cancer. And because of all of the months of misdiagnosis it is now in my lymph nodes and blood. Now I am in chemo therapy fighting for my life. Shakeel Kahn is never on time to the office. It is not fun waiting in your car in 110 degree weather for 2 to 3 hours for him to show up and unlock the office. He has no sinks in any of his exam rooms. I have seen him go from patient to patient without washing his hands. He has no nurse in the office. Either his brother (who I don't think has any medical training) or his receptionist takes your temperature, weight and blood pressure.
