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.
