Welcome Dr. Nahida Khan

Welcome Dr. Nahida Khan

As a geriatric specialist, Dr. Nahida Khan routinely counseled her patients on finding ways to improve their quality of life. But when she discovered that she needed to define what quality of life meant for herself, she realized that she needed a change. Dr. Khan began actively looking for a smaller community and a smaller hospital with the opportunity to practice both geriatric medicine and primary care. Fortunately for us, she found both right here at Campbell County Health.

Dr. Khan comes to Gillette from Wake Forest Baptist Health in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she practiced clinical primary care in a retirement community and served as the medical director. She attended medical school at Ross University School of Medicine in Dominca, did her residency in Internal Medicine and completed a Fellowship in Geriatric Medicine at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City. She is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Geriatric Medicine and will be practicing at Campbell County Medical Group's Main Clinic. Dr. Khan also has training in palliative care and will help Dr. Meade care for hospice patients when she is on vacation.

Dr. Khan will see both internal medicine and geriatric patients in her practice. She believes that practicing geriatrics has made her a better primary care clinician, and is looking forward to working with younger patients too. She knows that many health problems start when patients are relatively young, and she can help people start making positive changes earlier in their lives.

When asked what she likes about Gillette so far, Dr. Khan said she likes the relatively smaller size of the hospital and the chance to work in a clinic environment with other specialty physicians available for consultations.

Dr. Khan is looking forward to utilizing the Rec Center when she gets used to the higher elevation in Gillette. She loves hiking and will soon be training for a hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa next September. She is also passionate about dance, and wants to become proficient in Spanish and French.

Please welcome Dr. Khan to Gillette and Campbell County Health.
