He ran the same tests every visit, gave the same exam and MISSED the fact that I did NOT in fact have Lupus, but rather I have CREST Syndrome - a much more serious autoimmune disease. He also has terrible hours as he leaves as early as 2:30pm. So glad I found another Rheumatologist.

I am thankful to have Dr Tareq as my mother's rheumatologist. I truly believe that he is caring and compassionate and acted in the best interest of my mother. He spent time listening to understand the issues at hand before deciding on the best course of action and treatment that are most appropriate for her. He answered all my questions and explained things clearly and thoroughly. Thank you Dr Tareq.

Saw him for several months—more proactive than my previous rheumatologist, but didn't communicate with me well and sometimes based decisions on faulty assumptions about me—i.e., telling me he wouldn't give me a medication because it wasn't tested for pregnant women, even though I repeatedly told him I wasn't going to get pregnant. I finally had to tell him I wasn't heterosexual for him to believe me. He was also dismissive at times, which led to a delayed diagnosis for me. I was experiencing tremors, which I tried to bring to his attention (I wasn't sure it was related to my autoimmune disorder/fibro) and he said he couldn't explain all my fibro symptoms. A few months later, I saw him while in the middle of an episode of tremors, and he told me I needed to see a neurologist and that I couldn't assume that everything fell under the fibro umbrella. Also—this is less important, but he calls his staff "the girls," which I can't say I love.

Dr. Abou Khamis is the best doctor in Houston! He is amazing and listens to all you right concerns, he walks with you all the way until treatment is over with. He’s very generous and kind hearted.. before presenting himself as a doctor he presents himself as a human first! He was my doctor for the past year and now I’m in Palestine hoping I can find a doctor as great as him but I highly doubt that!
