Since July of 2017, he has been practicing at Barnet Dulaney Perkins Eye Center, seeing patients at the offices in Chandler, Goodyear, Mesa Southern, Safford, Show Low, Sun City, and Surprise, Arizona. He remains dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and creating long-term relationships with each of his patients.

They use some of the most advanced technologies and techniques to treat patients at all stages of life. Comprehensive eye health services are provided by nationally recognized specialists in multiple fields of ophthalmology, including cataract surgery, vision correction, cornea, retina, glaucoma and oculoplastics with a mission “To change lives by improving and preserving sight.”

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. He then completed advanced training in ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, where he served as chief resident. During his training, he was awarded the Austen T. Gray Memorial Scholarship, which recognizes a single ophthalmology resident for overall excellence and the delivery of exceptional patient-care. 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.

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.
