Dr. Raoufi is an exceptional and caring physician. I had a difficult illness that is now in remission because of his thorough attentiveness, skill, and knowledge. I have my life back because of his care. The team in his office are professional, very kind, and helpful. In a time where much of medical practice has become distant and remote, Dr. Raoufi and his team are welcoming and always there to help. I unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Raoufi.

Had procedure done 6 weeks ago as recommended by my doctor and despite multiple requests still have not seen results. Went to Dr. Raoufi's office to request results and Dr. Raoufi said he didn't recognize me and to go to the hospital to get the results. Treated me like I was insignificant and not worth his time.

I would recommend Dr. Raoufi for your next colonoscopy. His expertise was part of what I call THE THREE WISE MEN, my team that saved my life from colon cancer. The other two doctors were Dr. William Pierce (surgeon) and Dr. Michael Asknin (anesthesiologist) at Lompoc Hospital, 2020. All three doctors work in tandem coordinating their professional and kind care. Carol Redhead

I have had Crohns Disease for 18y. I’ve been in/out of long term hospital care. Seen many GIs. I have never been treated so poorly. No pre-op meeting. No post-op briefing. No MEDS NO APPT NO CALL and just blew off a “virtual” appt. Asked inappropriate questions not concerning my medical history on the initial and ONLY visit before/after colonoscopy. This guy is a joke. His rating is high bc it’s a small town with NO other GI. If you want CARE don’t go here. He legit told me he chose this line of medicine bc the money is high and no one needs care after hours. He acts like it’s about money. Clearly a great doctor ??

Ok, to start off, He is what Doctors used to be like when I was growing up. He takes the time to listen to you, then instead of jumping to his opinion, he checks out your concerns & what your body is presenting. Then he takes the time to talk to you regarding his findings & make sure you understand what’s going on. A plan of action is presented, but all along, I never felt like a number or a patient. I felt like he had known me for years, like friends but closer...family. Thank you Dr Raoufi

I would very strongly recommend Dr. Raoufi to anyone seeking a highly competent as well as caring, GI Dr. His staff was a pleasure to work with- a very different, caring feel from the moment they answered the phone, to scheduling an urgently needed appointment during the holidays for my 85 year old mother. Dr. Raoufi went above the call of duty and had her fit in during his lunch time in order to accommodate her need for an endoscopy. Others just referred to the ER. He is the best!

After having abdominal pain for almost 2 years and seeing different doctors who wouldn't take the time to listen I finally found dr Raoufi. When I explained to dr Raoufi my symptoms he right away ordered an Ultrasound and gave me Dexilant which helped improve my symptoms . I was very pleased with dr Raoufi as he took action right away unlike the other doctors that I had previously seen. He is a very sweet man we sure are lucky to have A doctor like him in town.

I had my first Colonoscopy and Endoscopy with Dr. Raoufi and It couldn't have gone any better! I was asleep the whole time and before I knew it, it was over. I didn't feel a thing and couldn't believe I waited so long...the prep for the colonoscopy was the worse. Other then that, the Doctor and staff were awesome.
