Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

We went to Dr. Rahmani for trauma with my child's eye that required an extensive surgery. He was very kind to us. Wonderful bedside manner with both us and our young child. We have had many follow up visits and continue to have them. He takes the time to explain things in terms that we can understand and takes the time to ensure that our concers are addressed. I believe that my child is receiving the best possible care available.

Dr. Rahmani has a very calm and reassuring bedside manner, capable of putting both children and their sometimes anxious parents at ease. He is patient and kind, explains complicated medical diagnosis and procedures in relatable terms, and answers all questions without making the patient (or patient's parent) feel ignorant or a bother. Highly recommend!
