Located in Elk Grove, the medical practice of Dr. Khattab provides a unique and welcoming environment for patients and their families. Combining the best of technology and personalized care has been the signature of Dr. Khattab and his successful internal medicine practice.
Doctors of internal medicine focus on adult medicine and have had special study and training focusing on the prevention and treatment of adult diseases. At least three of their seven or more years of medical school and postgraduate training are dedicated to learning how to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases that affect adults. Internists are sometimes referred to as the ‘doctor’s doctor,’ because they are often called upon to act as consultants to other physicians to help solve puzzling diagnostic problems.
