I highly recommend you stay far away from this Pulmonologist. He is the worst in Polk County. It is public record he has been called in front of the local medical board because of issues with his Care of patients. His office is packed but just so he can take in as many appointments as possible to take your money and bill insurance. Every appointment I had with him lasted less than 2 minutes face to face. He is not an advocate for your concerns.

After reading previous reviews I was very nervous about my visit to Dr Rahim. I did not have the same experience as the other reviewers. He answered all my questions in an honest straightforward manner. I felt I could believe & trust what he was telling me. Maybe sometimes he will tell you something you don't want to hear but you can trust him when he says it. He was very business like but not in an unfriendly manner & that's what keeps you from sitting in the waiting room for long time.

VERY INDIFFERNT. APPEARS VERY COCKY AND NOT VERY CONCERNING. HE IS ONLY IN BUISNESS DUE TO BEING THE ONLY GAME IN TOWN . IM DONE WITH HIM. WILL TRAVEL 30 MILES OUT MY TO BRANDON TAMPA OR ORLANDO FOR BETTER SERVICE.
