Dr Rahimi is always friendly, understanding and personable. She is and has always been considerate of my feelings and health. I would recommend her to any one and everyone. Due to her care my life was dramatically changed and saved. She performed a colonoscopy on me and the BIopsy came back negative but she insisted I do more tests and treatment. Turns out I had Bowel Cancer and it would have otherwise gone undetected. I am grateful for her and glad she is on my health plan.
