Rashid Khan, MD is a Hematologist/Medical Oncologist at Michiana Hematology Oncology, PC (MHOPC). He has been with MHOPC since 2015. Dr. Khan was drawn to the excellent practice opportunity, the proximity to Chicago and the excellent public schools in the area. He came here with his wife and
4 girls which include a set of identical twins! Dr. Khan is originally from Karachi, Pakistan which has a metropolis of approximately 14 million people.
Dr. Khan attended medical school at The Aga Khan University Medical College in Pakistan. It wasn’t until clinicals started that he was sure he wanted to be a physician. He completed a residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Connecticut and a Hematology/Oncology fellowship at the University of Maryland, Baltimore. After his fellowship, Dr. Khan worked in academia before joining private practice.
Dr. Khan has settled well into private practice. He finds the single biggest joy is when he can positively impact someone’s life. His favorite moments are the unexpectedly favorable patient outcomes or diagnostic enigmas that are diagnosed and do well. He believes the community here in Michiana is loving and kind and finds the gratitude in serving individuals in the community to be very uplifting. During his residency, Dr. Khan diagnosed a colleague with a visible thyroid nodule that led to early detection of thyroid malignancy. The colleague was able to have surgery and be cured.
Dr. Khan’s colleagues say that he is passionate, meticulous about follow-ups and has an average response time to emails of around 4 minutes! That is quick! When not in the office, Dr. Khan enjoys time with his family, soccer (his favorite team is Arsenal), trying different ethnic foods and being a car enthusiast. Dr. Khan also likes to grill steaks and cook tandoori chicken and lamb chops. He even had time to catch The Phantom of the Opera at the Morris when it was in town. Thank you, Dr. Khan, for all your hard work!
