​​​​Professional Backgr​​ound 

Dr. Dakik began his medical training in Houston, Texas at Baylor College of Medicine where he cultivated an interest in disorders of the gastrointestinal tract. Subsequently, he pursued residency training at Duke University where he found his academic home. He continued at Duke for fellowship training where he developed a special interest in the management of inflammatory disorders of the GI tract such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. Dr. Dakik served as the Assistant Chief at Duke University in 2012.​

Professional As​​​sociations 

Dr. Dakik is a member of the American Medical Association, the American College of Gastroenterology and the American Gastroenterological Association.

Hobbies and Int​​erests

Dr. Dakik enjoys woodworking in his small garage shop. He also enjoys playing basketball, football and racquetball. Most importantly, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. 

Fun F​acts

Dr. Dakik’s favorite actor is Daniel Day Lewis and his favorite book is “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway. His favorite historical figure is Thomas Edison. His favorite superhero is Aquaman because he gets to live in the ocean.​

​I believe that the role of the physician is to provide compassionate and comprehensive guidance to patients about their medical problems, as well as to serve as an advocate for patients by working closely with them through their illness together.
