Lodi, CA |
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.
in Bakersfield, CA |
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.
in Lake Isabella, CA |
This dr. Spent very little time with me was not very thorough with my testing and made a judgment based on one x-ray rather than all of the studies I've had done before I am getting second opinion not very pleased with my experience
Hanford, CA |
In addition to excellent neurosurgery skills, he is honest & competent with diagnosis and surgery follow up. He is an outstanding surgeon. I am so thankful he
