Specialties

Dr. Shakil A Khan has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    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.

    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.

  • Neurology

    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.

I wish my kids still seen Dr. Khan.

Dr, Khan was my kids first psychiatrist. They seen him through their mental health provider. unfortunately he left the facility. Both of my boys want to go back to seeing him. Everything he told us about my oldest son was head on and straight forward and true. What he said may happen in the future some of it did. He always listened to me as a parent.

How can you get appropriate treatment for mental illness if you can't speak to the physician and can't get an appointment but every three months?There is never a follow up call and don't you dare call him. You must convey all questions to his nurse who has the communication skills of a retarded, dysfunctional...*?#@*!! So typical of someone who's sense of well being comes from denying any information or support because by not doing so gives her the satisfaction of having some control in her own screwed existence. Cow! This practice is a joke. I believe they prey on the ignorance of the uneducated and unexposed.
