Dr. Abdelnaser A Elkhalili has the following 2 specialties
A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I've been seeing him for almost 5 years. He's super nice and great bedside manner but he's very busy and sometimes spends less than 5 minutes with me. I don't feel like he listens or takes notes in those precious 5 minutes either. It is mostly, how are you feeling, do some bloodwork, let's do refills or try this medicine. He has never once done an x-ray of my joints.
i do not recommend this dr to anyone!!! he wants to tell me i don't have something i have had for years,and was diagnosed by one of the best rheumitologist in houston,PLUS he was looking at my positive ANA and other blood work but still said i dont have it.he also perscribe medication that treats what he said i didn't have.
Dr. Elkhalili DID prescribe a medication that did help a little bit with my arthritis however, I will not go back nor will I recommend him to anyone. Why? Because he wanted to double my blood pressure medication after one pressure reading in his on one day. He was not the doctor who first prescribed the blood pressure medication and he knew that I had an appointment with my cardiologist two days later. Now, if my cardiologist had agreed and increased my medication that would be one thing however, he didn't. In point of fact my cardiologist DECREASED my medication by half. If I had listened to Dr. Elkhalili and taken a double dose of the medication, I could be dead.
He is an amazing, wonderful, sweet, kind, caring and understanding doctor and takes his time, explains things, makes sure you are ok especially for patients with new diagnosis.. I was diagnosed with SLE Lupus and he explained everything and even did the test twice just to make sure which i really appreciate and respect... Im still scared about this whole lupus things but he makes me feel safe and comforts me on my fears etc... I would recommend him to anyone, friends, family and loved ones... I am so grateful and thankful that I found the best most wonderful doctor who took my insurance... was very hard and difficult to find one and im so happy i found him,,,
