What People Say About Dr. Maria Rasul, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

During my 3rd visit in a month I was once again pleasantly surprised by the welcoming and compassionate staff. The first time I arrived a little late feeling frustrated and apologetic. I was greeted by Tiffany at the front desk and she was so delightful and patient and just got me on my way doing paperwork with no hassle at all. The second visit was for my daughter and it was also efficient and delightful. My third visit was to do a more invasive procedure and I was feeling nervous and vulnerable. The assistant Paula (I think) explained everything and offered some comforts to ease the coming discomfort. The best part of this visit was meeting Dr. Rasul who took the time to explain what she was going to do and eased my nervousness. After the procedure she was able to share what she learned and show me video of what she saw. We discussed what options might be available based the lab work. I went in feeling anxious and left feeling heard and comforted knowing I have a team to help.

I've only had one appointment with Dr. Rasul so far regarding my 2nd pregnancy. I LOVED her! Someone else described her as sassy and disarming and that's the perfect description. She made me so comfortable and so excited about this pregnancy. I really felt like she cares. Hoping she is on-call when I'm ready to deliver this baby in December! :)

Dr. Rasul is a busy lady. Too busy to truly investigate my signs and symptoms with a thorough in person interview. She rushed through our appointment and was quick to order a bunch of tests that I am now in major debt for. I had to call her office many times to finally get the results. She had medical assistants call me back and they didn't understand anything, nor could they answer any of my questions. She then gave me a flippant diagnosis that is not diagnosable, except with a procedure.

Dr. Rasul is the best. She is wicked smart and totally disarming. She made me feel comfortable from the second she walked into the room. Our conversations were very authentic and it's obvious she is all about the best care for her patients. I recommend her 100%. The Central Coast is blessed that she chose to come here after working back east at at Georgetown.

I was lucky enough to end up with Dr. Rasul and we connected right off the bat- shes so sassy and funny! She was there to hold my hand through a difficult pregnancy and her take charge confidence and mom-like bedside manner put me at ease. I can't imagine having someone better on my side. she went as far as reworking the schedule so she could be the attending when I delivered, which added up being an emergency c-section, but not before she tried everything to get me a natural birth. LOVE HER!!!

I had a ruptured ovarian cyst pain level 13 on scale of 1-10 and couldn't get into my OBGYN for 5 days because she was booked... never saw her or spoke with her after multiple messages... only her RN ... after having Ultrasound as a outpatient the RN called and sent me directly to ER ... the next day they sent me to Dr. Rasul, I swear it was Gods intervention! She's so Awesome! Nice, patient, knows what she's doing, took the time to listen and made a plan!! Thank you God!!! Feeling so Blessed!!
