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!
