Medical Oncology

“I appreciate developing long-term relationships with patients and their families and guiding treatment plans that reflect their values.”

— Dr. Khan

What do you hope it’s like for a patient to work with you?

My goal is to make sure people understand all treatment options available and for patients to have access to leading therapies and clinical trials. Considering individual preferences and wishes, we work together to create a plan that makes the most sense for each person. 

A diagnosis of cancer is a life-changing event, with a huge impact on the lives of patients and their loved ones. I aim to support and guide you through this challenging time, and recognize how important it is to build trust with an oncologist.

What do you find motivating or inspiring about your work?

Many incredible and exciting scientific advancements and discoveries in the field of genitourinary cancers have taken place in the last several years. Because of these advances, we are not only improving treatments but also quality of life for patients.

My research focuses on the health economics of cancer care. From my patients, I have learned that being able to receive treatment depends on many factors — some of which have nothing to do with the cancer. I study ways to improve the affordability and accessibility of cancer care and strive to improve the quality of its delivery. I continue to learn from my patients’ experiences, which drives my research and my desire to make the health care system better for patients.

Provider Background

Area of Clinical Practice
Genitourinary oncology

I am a physician who sees patients at the South Lake Union Clinic.

As part of the genitourinary cancer research team, I participate actively in enrolling patients in clinical trials. I study the health economics of cancer care, with the goal of making cancer care more accessible and affordable. Many patients have difficulty with access or struggle with the financial burden of their cancer care. I study the impact of these costs on cancer outcomes and aim to understand how treatments for prostate cancer contribute to financial hardship for patients.

Clinical Trials

We make promising new treatments available to you through studies called clinical trials led by Fred Hutch physicians. Many of these trials at Fred Hutch have led to FDA-approved treatments and have improved standards of care globally. Together, you and your physician can decide if a study is right for you.

Many of our Fred Hutch physicians conduct ongoing research to improve standards of patient care. Their work is evaluated by other physicians and selected for publication to the United States National Library of Medicine, the largest medical library in the world.
