His actions have shown to me he has no concern for patients. His Nurse Practitioner is who you will see. Through her he will order massive tests. Tests that you won't get the results.

Dr. Kharrat found my problems that 3 other gastroenterologist missed. He is a very busy doctor, but always takes the time to answer any questions you have. A very kind doctor.

Dr. Kharrat treated my husband when we discovered pancreatic cancer. He was very knowledgeable in what treatment was need for David, including sending him to Dallas for whipple surgery. I recently went to him for myself, and was very pleased with him and his office.
