in Cypress, TX |
Dr. Elkhalili gave me one of the most thorough examinations I have had to date. His bedside manner was very kind and caring. He has been very accommodating when my insurance plan messed up my prescriptions. If my mother or daughter had inflammatory disease, I would send them to this man.
League City, TX |
Dr. Elkhalili diagnosed a rare condition which I had for two years when other doctors could not. He stays informed about the newest and best treatments for my illness as researched by the Cleveland Clinic. He always remembered me by name and is a caring and intelligent doctor.
in Galveston, TX |
From the beginning, Dr. Elkhalili was friendly, kind and concerned. I was immediately comfortable with him. Trust in your doctor is paramount. And to this day--four years since coming under his care--my trust in Dr. Elkhalili has never diminished. I thank my Lord Jesus for him!
in Katy, TX |
Dr. Elkhalili was able to identify my diagnosis in one visit after spending 7 years seeing multiple doctors & doing numerous tests only to be told that they did not know what was wrong. He is on the cutting edge of lupus research & advance medicine. I have recommended numerous friends to Dr. Elkhalili & all have been extremely pleased with him and the knowledge he has in the rheumatology field including degenerative & inflammatory arthropathies, systemic conditions, & connective tissue diseases.
