New Doctor coming to CKHA
Chatham-Kent Health Alliance welcomes Dr. Mateen Khan to the community.
Dr. Khan completed his medical education at Temple University in Philadelphia and his residency in Delaware. He has spent the last several years as staff physician in the emergency department in Buffalo, New York.
“Dr. Khan joins a dedicated group of physicians providing care in our emergency departments,” said Dr. Gary Tithecott, Chief of Staff at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. “Emergency department physicians are especially important in smaller hospitals as they ease the burden on family doctors to provide coverage.”
Friendly people were the major draw to Chatham-Kent for Dr. Khan. “Friends brought me and the suburban, small town atmosphere made me decide to stay longer,” he explained.
Taking care of people, as a physician, was his childhood dream. “While other children wanted to be astronauts and dolphin trainers, I wanted to be a doctor,” said Dr. Khan.
Dr. Khan chose to pursue a career in emergency medicine “because that’s where the fun is.”
