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!
in Irvine, CA |
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.

Procedures Performed

Dr. Rahavi says..

In my field the procedures are either for diagnosis or treatment purposes. 

For diagnosis we may need to aspirate the fluid from a swollen joint to help with diagnosis in particular in cases of crystal induced arthritis like gouty arthritis or psudogout. The evaluation for infection is best done by examining the fluid. 

As a rheumatologist I am trained to extract the fluid from the joints and examin the fluid for it's color, clarity and viscosity to narrow down diagnostic possibilities and use special microscope to examine for infection as well as crystals like gout or psudogout crystals.

For treatment purposes I am experienced in treating acutely painful or swollen joints, bursae or tendon sheaths with corticosteroids. We may be able to relieve the pain of knee osteoarthritis by injecting "Hyaluronat" to create a cusion between the bones. Fibromyalgia trigger points may benefit from local injections along with other treatments.
