Specialties

Dr. Tariq C Rahim has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

I know he is an excellent doctor but he does not explain things to me and is always in a hurry. One time he examined me, left the room while I waited for him to come back to talk to me but never did until the nurse came and asked me why I was still there and I told her he never said anything to me so she looked at my chart and told me an explanation and said his bedside manner wasn't the greatest! I get more information from the nurses who are very good and caring and take time to inform me of my results.

I was referred to Dr Rahim by my primary care physician for GI issues. I had numerous issues that prompted my scheduling an appointment, and he was dismissive and extremely rude during each appointment. He pretty much said that it was all in my head. So I went to another doctor, who believed me, and found numerous GI issues for which I am under treatment. Dr Rahim did a colonoscopy, and found nothing. However my new Doctor looked over the colonoscopy report and found that he had missed 2 polyps. So the new doctor did another colonoscopy to remove those 2 polyps. Those polyps were pre- cancerous, and I'm thankful that my new doctor is attentive, caring and very thorough.
