I have been a patient of Dr. Rahavi's for many years. I find him to be an excellent physician. He is dedicated to his patients and provides all around care. He does not just address his specialty he demonstrates concern for his patients. He will always take your calls and has the best interest for each patient. Dr. Rahavi is compassionate and thorough, he is empathetic and understanding, which is often rare to find today. Dr. Rahavi is a great choice!

I've been his patient since 2005. He listens to what I say, explains things, and treats me, not just my pain. Sometimes I need to wait, but it's because he treats each patient like they are his only patient. I recently moved out of state and after bad experiences with the doctors there, I now return to California because he's the best!

Dr. Rahavi is the very personification of a Doctor who prioritizes the needs of his patients. He treats his patients with compassion, kindness and professionalism. He treated my Mother and I am now the recipient of his generosity, patience and kindness as is a dear friend of mine. I am treated like I am his only patient at his office and he also responds almost immediately to messages left after hours. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a Dr. who will make your health a top concern.

I have never had a doctor be as thorough and patient in evaluating my case, and I have seen many doctors in my 70+ years.

How was your experience with Dr. Rahavi?

About Me

I believe in a mutual, traditional patient-physician relationship. I enjoy to employ the ART as well as the SCIENCE of MEDICINE TO improve my patient's health and quality of life. 

According to WHO (World Health Organization) "Health is a state of well being PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY and SOCIALLY". Therefore, care should consider the whole person to produce the best results.
