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.
