My experience with Dr Rahimi and her office has been an excellent one. I went in for a doctors appt for a routine colonoscopy. Wait time was short. The doctor was efficient and thorough. The colonoscopy was performed today at a surgicenter in Laguna Woods. I was in the waiting room only 15 minutes, took about 15 minutes to get me prepped and setup, and wheeled into procedure room, talked to dr rahimi, positioned and given med at same time. Recovery 1/2 hour. Would highly recommend all involved!
