OVERVIEW

Dr. Elkhatib is excited to use his skills to serve the patients of this community. He treats each patient like a family member, making sure he listens to the needs of each patient, and giving them the time and attention they deserve. Growing up in Ohio, he received his Bachelors of Science degree in Biology from the Ohio State University in Columbus. After graduating from the Ohio State University, he attended medical school at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where he received his Medical Degree with AOA honors, graduating in the top 5% of his class. He then went on to complete his Internal Medicine Residency at the prestigious Northwestern University in Chicago. While completing a rigorous core internal medicine specialization, Dr. Elkhatib received several resident teaching awards and the Humanism in Medicine Award. Most importantly, he fell in love with Chicago and its people. Dr. Elkhatib went on to complete a subspecialty fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of California San Diego. During his fellowship, he authored and published multiple publications in esteemed gastrointestinal journals. He also authored three book chapters in separate popular gastroenterology textbooks. After observing the benefits endoscopic interventions could have on his patients, Dr. Elkhatib completed an additional sub-fellowship in Advanced and Therapeutic Endoscopy at the University of California. He became skilled in endoscopic ultrasound, biliary procedures (ERCP, cholangioscopy) enteral stenting and radiofrequency ablation of Baretts esophagus, among several other endoscopic interventional techniques. The addition of Dr. Elkhatibs expertise to GI Associates means that we can provide more specialized procedures and treatment for special cases that we see in our patients while still maintaining our exceptional level of patient care.

"Dr. Elkhatib is very nice & makes you feel very comfortable. He speaks to you so you understand what he’s saying. The only reason I didn’t give him 5 stars is because it was very hard to get his staff to understand I had to be seen for what I thought was an infection. They said they wouldn’t have an available appointment for 5 weeks. I was put on hold several times and finally I was able to talk to a nurse who scheduled me for the next day. "

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
