Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Alkhatib "I came to Duke as a visiting medical student many years ago and fell in love with this institution and its people. I love to be part of a group that contributes knowledge and discoveries every day. As an electrophysiologist I treat people with heart rhythm disorders including atrial arrhythmias like atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias. I mostly focus on the prevention of sudden cardiac death and on patients with devices such as pacemakers and implantable defibrillators. We do everything we can to build a very good and strong relationship with patients; we provide them with the information they need and empower them to make the decisions that are best for them. Were also at the cutting edge of new discoveries. The research we do is amazing the findings that help patients and advance the field make working at Duke thrilling. Its very exciting to be part of that. For these reasons patients benefit greatly from coming to Duke."
