in Mandeville, LA |
I am very satisfied with all aspects of my treatment by Dr. Khatib. Because of his expert knowledge, he found the origin of my SVT & successfully ablated the area. He was very compassionate.
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Khatib is a very experienced, exceptionally competent physician with an engaging personality that makes you feel at totally at ease. Importantly, he will listen to you and respectfully bring you into the process. Dr. Khatib is a superb Doctor, and he's been successfully taking great care of me and my heart issues for several years. His staff is also top shelf. I can only say, I'm so very appreciative.
in Baton Rouge, LA |
Of four cardiologists I saw for syncope with asystole, he was the only one who really considered ALL of the factors that might be causing my heart to pause, and because of that was not adamant that I needed to get a pacemaker. He affirmed what I strongly believed to be true, but what the other doctors totally dismissed. I credit that to his expertise and experience in dealing with syncope. I'm very thankful I went to him. BTW, his nurse was great.

At first, Dr. Khatib was a great doctor. After the first few appointments, I realised that he has very little concern of his patients well being. It's almost impossible to get an appointment with him. Once I was able to schedule one, he cancelled the appointment that I had waited months for without a reason. He did this THE DAY BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT. Then, he charged for the appointment that HE cancelled and I received the bill from my insurance. He is horrible!
in Belle Chasse, LA |
Dr. Khatib was friendly, professional, and he explained things very thoroughly. He was ready to answer any questions I had. I will definitely recommend him to anyone that needs a Cardiologist.
in Houma, Louisiana |
Excellent doctor! Answered all of my questions thoroughly. Addressed all of my concerns and treated me like a human being. I am proud to have him as my doctor.
