Professional Background

Dr. Mahjabeen Khan is a board-certified pediatrician. She earned her Bachelor of Science in biology at the University of Houston in 2007, followed by her Doctor of Medicine at the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in St. Maarten, Netherlands-Antilles in 2014.

She completed her Pediatrics internship in 2016 and her Pediatrics residency in 2018, both at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, La.

From 2019 to 2021, she worked as a general pediatrician at The Pediatric Center of Southwest Louisiana in Lake Charles.

Dr. Khan is dedicated to providing comprehensive medical care to achieve patient and family wellness. She has a special interest in newborn care, as well as pediatric care for allergies, asthma, ADHD, Sports Medicine, and nutrition. She is enthusiastic about teaching and guiding parents from the newborn period into early adulthood.

Professional Associations

Dr. Khan is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the Harris County Medical Society and the Texas Medical Association.

Hobbies and Interests

Dr. Khan enjoys hiking with her husband and son, astronomy, learning about different cultures and food through travel, and Harry Potter books and movies.

Fun Facts

The best advice Dr. Khan has ever received is “Don’t take anything for granted. Cherish every moment while you can.”

The most exotic place she has visited is Iceland, which she loves for its natural beauty and simple way of life.

Not everyone knows this about Dr. Khan, but she has snorkeled between two tectonic plates.

Dr. Khan’s guilty pleasure is ice cream. As a child, she wanted to be an astronaut because she was amazed by the beauty, mystery, and vastness of space.


​My care is centered around preventive health strategies, and my goal is to keep my patients happy and healthy.
