    in Arlington, MA |
    He treated me for stroke on July 22, 2013, and then examined me 3 months later, even taking care to look at my bare toes. His excellent advice: "Keep moving!"
    in Cambridge, MA |
    I saw Dr. Elkhaifa via the MIT Health Plan at MIT, so some of the metrics such as scheduling were not specific to him and I have left them blank. The visit was in reference to a peripheral neuropathy which he diagnosed after a reference out for testing at MIT. His manner was good, his conduct was professional, and he took an appropriate amount of time to deal with me. Overall, my impression of him is one of a competent and caring physician. I would have no reservations visiting him again.

    Might be fine neurologically speaking but No bedside manner, poor relationship skills, chastized me for not agreeing with treatment plan, and did nit listen when told critical information- replued ' i have another patient." I belueve he diagnosed what he wanted and does not truly listen to patient's perspective. I woukd not go back and do not recommend.

    Excellent neurologist who can diagnose difficult problems. Very caring person who takes the time to know you and takes time with appointment.
