Hamdard Healthcare is excited to announce that general pediatrician Dr. Sarah Khan will be joining their Chicago location. Dr. Khan was born and raised in the U.S., however, her ethnic routes are from Pakistan. Her father, who is also a pediatrician, was her inspiration to become a pediatrician. She completed medical school at Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL, and her pediatric residency at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oaklawn, IL. Dr. Khan truly enjoys working with children and their families. Her favorite part of pediatrics is watching children grow throughout the years and creating a long-lasting relationship with children and their parents. She also have a passion for traveling to other countries to serve in medical mission trips to help deliver care to the underserved populations. In her free time, Dr. Khan enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter, traveling, trying new restaurants, and trying new recipes with her family.
Dr. Khan likes to approach children and their families in a gentle manner, with a calm demeanor and compassionate care. She realized throughout her years of practice that children need a patient, kind person to take care of them in the clinical setting, so they feel comfortable and not frightened when they go to the doctor’s office. She understands that parents can really worry and have a level of uncertainty about their children and their health, so she tries to provide reassurance and explain treatment plans carefully and in detail to parents. That way, they can go home with a focused plan and know exactly what to do to help their child feel better.
