Dr. Arif was just an angle from Allah j side for my child
If you need an expert neurologist who you can trust and put all your faith into, you want Dr. Arif on your child's team. He is an expert in epilepsy and has literally saved our daughters life a few days ago. He knows his trade inside out, is confident, assertive and is able to guide and advise even under the most high pressure times. We ended up in the ER for our daughter and he guided the doctors on call there in terms of what they had to do. We are so lucky that our daughter is under his wing. An exceptional doctor who challenges the status quo and aims to bring out the highest potential in children and ensure their well being. We are so incredibly grateful for all that he does for our daughter.
Dr Arif was my mentor through the brief spell I had with Neuropedia as an observer. He has such immense knowledge on how to handle various patients and always tries to personalize management in a way that is accessible to everybody. It was incredible how he was able to take out the time to answer my questions, and teach me different topics whilst also being so thorough with every patient that walked into his room. He was always very patient and understanding with patients who seemed to be in distress and made sure they walked out of the room feeling safe and informed after the consultation. He is so inspiring and had taught me skills that I will carry throughout my life.
I have a very good experience with Dr Arif Khan he is very dedicated, giving me accurate detailed information and well explanation.
Dr Khan has been amazing in listening to our current experiences with our son, and guiding us in our treatments and plans to get the best outcomes. After 3 weeks, we’re already seeing a difference!
We have had a very good experience with Dr Khan. We particularly like the joined up approach he has with the other specialists in Neuropedia.
One of the most experienced Pedriatic neurologists in the Middle East
