Dr. Aziz Alkatib is a gentle and compassionate physician who believes that patients need to be heard. He understands the fear and anxiety associated with having cardiac disease and seeks to put patients at ease. He uses a methodical but practical approach to tackling patients’ problems and follows through with ample communication and reassurance. Dr. Alkatib is against over-medicating and does not simply treat symptoms while ignoring the underlying illness.

He makes himself available and encourages patients to reach out when they have health concerns and need answers.
