He is an excellent doctor very thorough and compassionate. I have been under his care for 21 years. I had my right temporal lobe removed in 1998 after thorough testing for complex seizures since birth.

Dr. Khalil is a wonderful physician, however; his staff is not sensitive to his patients. No one is at the desk when you walk in which makes you late for appointments. No one is at the desk when you leave which makes follow up appointments impossible. I always have to call back when I get home or wait till the next day to make additional appointments. Very POOR staff
