Tarzana, CA |
Very dismissive & rude. Doesn't care about your pain unless he can perform surgery on you.
in Studio City, CA |
I will not be going back to him. He was in a rush and told me "I can't figure you out". Sent me off in a rush telling me to get another Mri and he will c me after. Very rude.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Dr. Rah preformed my lumbar discectomy in September. Prior to surgery I was in extreme pain from my lower back to my toes. I am now completely pain free! It has been life changing!
Simi Valley, CA |
Hostile, dismissive and rude. I rarely come across a Dr. like this. Dr. Rah did not seem to listen to what I was describing to him regarding my pain and symptoms. He made me feel as if what I was saying was not important or insignificant. I left his office feeling as if I had accomplished nothing, no recommendations for treatment and completely insulted.I waited 45 min,initially I thought maybe he was rushing in from being late and from a very bad experience and I was getting the brunt of it
Rude and dismissive. I brought records and CDs of images. Explained sciatica pain and back pain that concurred with previous doctor's findings. Rah said your MRI is fine and nothing can be causing that. THEN he says go find a pain specialist-I'm not in the business for that. Um ok....well at least can I have some Horizant for the nerve pain?! And he says No! What is that? I explained it just Neurontin extended release and he replies, Fine! But don't ask me for any refills!
in Los Angeles, CA |
I am not a precious person, and I don't need a doctor to hold my hand. But when he took one look at my MRI and said it isn't bad enough for surgery, so there is nothing I could do to help - I felt completely hopeless. He didn't even bother to measure my herniation and said he eyeballed it when I asked how many mm is was bulging. Offered 0 solutions for me, and didn't even bother to refer me to someone who could help. If he doesn't want to operate on you, he wants nothing to do with you.
in Calabasas |
Dr.Rah is incredible. His bedside manner is caring and real! His precision as a surgeon is unsurpassed. I highly recommend him. My issue for years was neck pain. He completely fixed the problem in a matter of a week!
