Los Angeles, CA |
It's a very busy office, so sometimes I have to wait, but he's one of the few doctors that's actually listened to me about my symptoms and not written me off. It's hard to find someone who will when you have multiple autoimmune things going on.

Worst office I have ever been to! Forgot to put in a referral for a month on an MRI, called 3 times about this before it was handled. The WORST staff I have ever worked with
Amini- the guy with glasses, uni brow- very inexperienced, DISHONEST! BAD TEMPER, can be CRUEL! due to his insecurities. needs to reevaluate his studies then practice. Please build up your confidence- you are heavily influenced by others. You need to learn bed side manners, for you need to be more empathetic and compassionate towards patient's needs - stop only thinking about profit! it's pathetic! You are CHEAP I will not recommend this place. very mismanaged- will spread the word.

Worst pain center I have ever been to. I've been in 24/7 pain. When my insurance changed to this doctor he lowered all my meds from what I have taken last 7yrs. All the dr do is make excuses.....I was also lied to by this clown of a doctor on my first visit. Talking to others it waiting room it is clear to me that it's not just me with problems with this doctor. They are supposed to help your pain not make it worst.

After Dr. Rasool was able to review my M.R.I. he adjusted my medication and he scheduled a epidural treatment. I cant explain how much the new medication is helping me deal with pain during my day to day activities. I am now able to do things I haven't been able to do in years. Dr. Rasool took the time to listen to me in depth, and explained why I've been experiencing so much pain. I must admit Im a little nervous about the epidural treatment but I know I am in good hands after our consultation

Dr Rasool listens to what I have to say and does not rush me. I am adequately medicated. I've never waited in the waiting room more than 15 min. The women at the front desk are terrific too. I moved from Reseda to long beach and still go to see Dr Rasool because I think he's a great Dr.
