Dr. Rashidi performed recent surgery on me and my experience with him from the initial consult to the follow-up appointment, one week post-op, was everything I would want from a medical professional. He is an absolutely amazing surgeon who truly cares for his patients, he takes your concerns and thoughts seriously. I now feel way better and I couldn't have asked for a better surgeon. I highly recommend him!

I was hospitalized needing gall bladder surgery and Dr R was consulted. After 2 days of not showing up or contacting my nurses or drs re consult, I insisted on another surgeon be consulted. that physician saw me the same day and scheduled surgery for next am. I was discharged the following day after lap chole.

I went to Dr. Rashidi in need of a hernia surgery, one of the most common procedures there is. He botched the surgery. In the days after surgery, I felt that something may be seriously wrong, but he denied everything. In the weeks and months to come, I got no answers for my continued and worsening pain. Eventually the pain was so bad that I sought out another surgeon. He was able to correct most of Rashidi’s glaring mistakes, but I still have permanent pain that I now have to live with.
