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!

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.

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!
