Working with Dr. Khan, a wonderful mentor, outstanding physician, and selfless person, was an honor for me. He brought out the best in me, Dr. Khan gave me the chance to independently directly communicate with the patient, and I learned how to use the EMR system. I had the incredible opportunity to have hands-on experience and an electives rotation.

I began by reviewing patient EMR profiles, which contained their medical information, performing their physical examination, taking their history, offering consultation, writing notes, and developing diagnoses for new patients. I would then counsel the patients and go over their diagnostic and treatment options with Dr. Khan before documenting everything on the EMR system.

My medical expertise was enhanced by this event and also assisted me in honing my professional and clinical abilities. I show patients with chest pain, shortness of breath, and pain in the lower extremities to patients with multiple diseases, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes. I also observed numerous procedures in the hospital, including Varithena, Venaseal, Venous ablations, cardiac catheterization, angiography, peripheral artery interventions, balloon dilations, and stenting.

Dr. Khan appreciated the way I carefully considered each treatment and posed insightful queries.

I had the opportunity to present novel research from JACC journal on surgical mitral valve repair for primary mitral valve regurgitation , Dr . khan appreciated me for my presentation .
As part of my homework assignment from Dr. Khan, I also presented on the stages of mitral regurgitation and an algorithm for managing the condition . He appreciated me for paying close attention to him and completing the assignment on time.

I saw Doctor Khan perform TEE on a patient with an intrapulmonary shunt while I was in the hospital, and he asked me to analyze the data and present it. After that I gave an presentation on Intrapulmonary shunt it’s correlation with stroke from JACE

In comparison to my Peers , Dr. Khan gave me an A grade and praised me for completing all of the tasks on time, being professional, and giving multiple presentations on time and as follows. He also cheered me for my knowledge of actual practice when he once asked me about the first line of treatment for B-blocker and calcium channel blocker toxicity and about an emergency situation when he asked whether I should go directly to the operating room or do a cath.

As a feedback Dr .Khan praised me for being independent and proactive among all the fellows,He also appericiated me for paying close attention to the assignment that was assigned and completing it promptly with excellent explanation and comprehension. Dr. Khan’s words truly pleased and overwhelmed me.

Dr. Khan is a wonderful physician as well as a thoughtful, passionate, and generous man.I’m extremely grateful to Dr. Khan and the Epic team.

Thank you very much for being wonderful.
