Making appointments are an issue. Discussions with him are an issue. Timely reports are an issue. Accurate evaluations are an issue. Options are an issue. His staff is an issue. There is a reason why he has horrible reviews. Reviews matter. Dont waste your time.

He repaired my lower back with 6 metal rods ( Severe Spinal Stenosis). It has been over two years and I am still feeling great. The nerve pain down my left leg is completely gone.

KERN county. As neurologist these are the most unprofessional doctors and doctor's office I have ever encountered. The doctor intentionally hurt me and did not provide the ANTIBIOTICS, ANTI-INFLAMMATORY and PAIN MEDICATIONS after surgery!!! If you think you are going to get better with these doctors get a second opinion from a different neurologist. Safe yourself from the pain and incompetence of this clinic and doctor's office. THE WORST EVER!!!

I am no stranger to the O.R. and this was by far the worst experience ever. The staff is incredibly rude and unprofessional. Phone calls are never returned. Dr. Rahimifar was completely absent. I had only seen him for approximately 2 minutes prior to surgery. Most of the questions I asked prior to surgery went unanswered. I never saw Dr. Rehimifar after the surgical procedure because he refused to see me. After my surgery I was improperly casted which caused a secondary injury (nerve damage) to

If I could rate him a zero I would. I had emergency brain surgery 6 months ago for brain tumor which he never did the correct scans for. He then did not remove the tumor which caused it to regrow. While he was doing the surgery he was so careless he put holes in the dura of my brain and never sewed them up and left them as holes in my brain! This allowed the spinal fluid to leak into the holes and nearly killed me 6 months later as I had to have another emergency surgery

I had both cervical and lumbar fusion by Dr Rahimifar. Both surgeries failed! I had to have a repeat lumbar fusion in Portland which was a success! Still waiting to decide to go through a repeat cervical. Dr Rahimifar's beside manner and follow up is non-existent. Do not go to this practice!

I've been going to this medical office for 3 years now and Dr. Rahimafar did my surgery and since then I have not seen him. I've seen all the other doctors, but him just once. My back didn't even get fix properly.

Had a disc blow out, he performed a fusion in my lower back. He is abrupt, but competent. He was referred to me by my very excellent Primary, and now, 16 years later, I've not had a single problem, and even run distance for my preferred exercise. Referred my Father to him for the same procedure, and despite being another 25 years older, he's had no problems either!

Saw this Dr for an acoustic neuroma in 2003. Not very good bed side manner. Just had another surgery for the piece of tumor this Dr left and this time the surgery was done right and all of the tumor was removed. I went through years with trigeminal neuralgia and permanent facial paralysis that he said would come back. If you have an acoustic neuroma I would recommend USC.
