Dr. Khalil has been my doctor for 8 years and he is the BEST doctor I have ever had take care of me. His overall care, compassion, and concern of my medical condition, and for me as a person (and even more than as a patient); has been amazing. He truly cares about his patients, and his knowledge definitely shows he is an expert in his field. I feel truly blessed to have Dr. Khalil as my doctor. He is a true asset to Vanderbilt Medical, and even though I wish I didn't have this medical condition, I am grateful knowing that I am in good hands.

Dr. Khalil is absolutely the best! He listens, is helpful to offer solutions. Explains everything well and makes sure your questions are fully answered. He doesnt over prescribe or over treat. Takes his time and I never feel he's impatient or rushed. He's wonderful!!
