We invite you to contact our friendly staff as soon as possible once your pregnancy has been confirmed to secure an appointment at the appropriate time in your pregnancy. Your consultations will be conducted at The San Clinic, Sydney Adventist Hospital.

Your first appointment, what to expect


Your first appointment with Dr Khan will be at around eight to ten weeks in your pregnancy (unless advised otherwise) and will be scheduled at the San Clinic, Sydney Adventist Hospital, Wahroonga at a time most convenient to you and your partner.

During your consultation, your medical history will be collected and a plan of management decided upon for delivery of your baby. Dr Khan will also perform an ultrasound at this visit. For many, this will be the first time they have seen their growing baby, a very exciting time indeed. There is no additional charge for your ultrasound performed at this visit and is included in your consultation fee. We also provide you with an antenatal folder which contains important information relating to your pregnancy, along with referrals for further testing (eg. Pathology and ultrasound testing) and a detailed printout of the fees charged by our practice. You will also be issued with your Maternity Booking form for the Sydney Adventist Hospital.

Whilst this time is a chance for us to become familiar with you, more importantly we want this to be an opportunity for you to get to know us, our practice and our beliefs and philosophies regarding the care we provide to our patients. We pride ourselves on our outstanding service delivered in a warm and friendly manner. We want you and your family to feel confident and comfortable so we invite your questions and feedback.
