I had only seen him for approximately 2 minutes prior to surgery. Most of the questions I asked prior to...Read More

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!
