Dr. Khanna earned her B.A. in biological sciences from Rutgers University and her MD at Ross University School of Medicine. She completed her preliminary internal medicine residency year at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in 1999 and remained there to complete her neurology residency in 2002. Dr. Khanna became a stroke fellow there, and through its active vascular program, used both medical and endovascular therapies for the treatment of stroke. She completed her fellowship in 2003. She remained on faculty as an assistant professor, stroke program director and a mentor to medical students and residents. Dr. Khanna played an integral role in the community outreach for stroke education and traveled extensively to educate the public. As director of the outpatient stroke clinic and the resident clinic, Dr. Khanna introduced a comprehensive vascular ultrasound examination in the outpatient setting.

Dr. Khanna then joined the faculty at Saint Barnabas University Hospital in Livingston, NJ, where she was the stroke program director and mentored residents in internal medicine by introducing them to the multitude of vascular disorders. In both hospitals, she trained staff, provided continuing medical education and coordinated with the accreditors in their Joint Commission primary stroke center accreditation.

Dr. Khanna moved to Florida in 2007 and joined a private practice, providing general neurology care to the Marion County community. Dr. Khanna joined the faculty at UF as an assistant professor in the neurovascular division in 2011. She is currently providing care for stroke patients in inpatient and outpatient settings.
