Dr. Khan graduated with honors from the University of Arizona with a degree in biochemistry and molecular and cellular biology in 2004. She then attended Mayo Medical School on a full scholarship awarded for academic merit. Dr. Khan remained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN for her residency training in dermatology. Upon completion of her training, Dr. Khan practiced at the Sanford Dermatology and Laser Clinic in Fargo, ND for three years. During her time there, she provided expertise to her patients in all aspects of dermatology, including general medical dermatology, pediatric dermatology, cosmetics and surgical dermatology.
It was during this time that Dr. Khan’s passion for cutaneous oncology grew to the point that she decided to pursue advanced fellowship training in Mohs and reconstructive surgery in order to provide optimal care for her patients dealing with skin cancer. Dr. Khan was accepted into the highly prestigious Mohs Micrographic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship at Yale University in New Haven, CT.
At Yale, she trained under the direction of Dr. David Leffell, Professor of Dermatology, Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology. During her fellowship, Dr. Khan cared for over 1000 skin cancer patients, many of whom had extremely rare tumors or other complex medical issues. In addition, she conducted research on a number of skin cancer related-topics.
Dr. Khan currently focuses her practice on cutaneous oncology, which primarily involves the treatment of basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, cutaneous sarcomas, adnexal carcinomas and other rare tumors. She is also an expert in facial plastic reconstruction following skin cancer removal. In addition, she also surgically removes benign growths such as cysts, lipomas, keloids and moles, repairs torn earlobes and performs nail biopsies.
Dr. Khan was born in the former Soviet Union and relocated to Phoenix, AZ in 2000. She is fluent in both English and Russian.
