Annum Khan is a licensed physician assistant at the National Spine and Pain Centers’ offices in Tysons Corner, VA, and Chevy Chase, MD under Dr. Friedlis. She is looking forward to using her experiences in the medical field to provide optimal care to her patients.
Throughout her career and education, Khan has worked with many doctors in various medical fields, including internal medicine, emergency care, surgery, and pain management. Working in a number of medical settings paved the path for Khan’s desire to work as a physician assistant. Before working with patients in a clinical setting, Khan worked as a pharmacy technician upon graduation with a Bachelor of Arts.
“I got into medicine at a very young age. I had a passion for science and excelled in the subject. With this practice focusing on the Spine I had a lot of family members that suffer from back issues so I wanted to go into a field that I could help my family out,” stated Khan.
Khan attended North Carolina State University where she received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. After working as a pharmacy technician for three years, Khan decided to further her career and pursued her Master of Science in Physician Assistant studies from Alderson-Broaddus University. During that time, she participated in a series of clinical rotations, where she got experience working with many doctors in primary care practices, pediatrics, orthopedics, dermatology, and more.
Upon completion of her Masters, Khan began pursuing her career in the field of pain management. She worked with Dr. Anne Truong in Fredricksburg, Virginina at the Truong Rehabilitation Center. Looking forward to using those learned skills at the National Spine and Pain Centers, Khan treats each patient with the utmost care and attention, while focusing on positive results and treatments to reduce pain.
During her spare time, Khan enjoys traveling, reading, interior decorating, exploring museums, trying new food, spending time with her family.
