With a broad educational background, Dr. El Gasim attended Duke University, where he received the Angier B. Duke scholarship, the University’s most prestigious merit-based award. After graduating magna cum laude, he received his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Prior to joining Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center, he completed specialized training in retina and uveitis at the world-renowned Moorfields Eye Hospital in London.
Committed to improving eyesight, he is board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO). The ABO is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.

Among his professional affiliations, he is a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists, the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American College of Physicians, and the American Medical Association.
Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.
When he is not helping patients, Dr. El Gasim likes traveling and spending time with his wife, family, and friends.
