Psychiatrist in California Shaista Khan, MD

Shaista Khan, MD

My philosophy is to work collaboratively with patients and also with their families(if applicable)as a team to develop a treatment plan for better success and long term compliance.
I am a compassionate, board-certified, and experienced psychiatrist. I treat a broad spectrum of psychiatric disorders with medication management and psychotherapy. My areas of interest include, but are not limited to: anxiety, mood disorders, psychotic disorders, PTSD and geriatric psychiatry. My goal is to help patients manage their symptoms and achieve a sense of overall well-being. I believe in thorough and careful evaluation. I value my time communicating with patients directly and getting to know them well.
After earning my medical degree from Dow Medical College Pakistan, I worked at Stanford hospital conducting research. I then completed my psychiatric residency and fellowship training in Geriatric Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. I have diverse experience working in different settings, including nursing homes, outpatient clinics, inpatient units and Emergency Psychiatry facilities. I have worked with patients from all ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. I worked for twelve years in the Veterans Hospital (VAPAHCS) as an adult and geriatric Psychiatrist.
