Specialties

Dr. Houssam A Al Kharrat has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • 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.

Be prepared to wait ... a long time

Lots of time waiting in the wait room, then again in the private room for the prep visit and again in the review visit. I learned absolutely nothing in either--I would have preferred that he just did the procedure. When he did see me for the pre and post visits, he spent only a few minutes with me and asked me what questions I had--no review of what to expect, what he found, nothing. Just the co-payments and waiting. I do think he knew what he was doing in my case, and he took care of what was needed, so I think he is very competent in his field.
