Dr. Akram Khan Joins Center for Sleep Medicine Staff

We are pleased to announce that Akram Khan, M.D., has recently joined the staff at the Center for Sleep Medicine at Mid-Columbia Medical Center. Dr. Khan is board certified in sleep medicine as well as pulmonology and critical care, and that expertise will be especially helpful for our complicated patients with overlapping syndromes of lung disease and sleep-related breathing issues.

Dr. Khan is on staff as a pulmonary critical care physician at OHSU and will initially be in our clinic approximately one day every other week. As MCMC and OHSU share our electronic medical record platform, Dr. Khan will be able to provide continuity of care to MCMC patients even when he is not in The Dalles.

In addition, MCMC recently purchased 10 new home sleep apnea testing units that will greatly increase the speed with which we can provide testing. Home testing is especially helpful at this time, as we seek to reduce patients’ time out of the home and minimize their contact with others during this pandemic.
