"Dr. Elkhatib has a very caring bedside manner & is very thorough. He has been able to resolve and treat my gastrointestinal issues I had been having by doing a series of outpatient testing & getting to what the real issue was. He definitely cares about his patients and spends the time with you instead of hurrying through appointments. I wish more doctors were like him. The staff in his office are all very kind and professional!"

"I’ve never had a doctor show so much care and compassion towards my issues. Whether they are big or small, he makes every issue important and really helps to get me better. He’s also respectful of questions or suggestions I have for him and he does a great job at explaining in layman’s terms what is happening in my GI system, or with explaining how medications or supplements will help or hinder me. Couldn’t recommend him enough!"

"Dr. Elkhatib has saved my life with his quick thinking and expertise. A doctor can only do so much. He has a team behind him and can’t control a lot that goes on without his knowledge. I had to understand that since knowing him. I appreciate him because he advised me on what to do and what not to do and is it up to me to be disciplined and make sure I follow the diet and take my medicine. I have been doing so much better as I cut out alcohol and smoking. I drink water daily and I cut out caffeine, red meat and other triggers to my condition. I recommend Dr. Elkhatib because he listened, he prescribed and he followed up. Thank you!"
