What People Say About Dr. Rahim Raoufi, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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

Dr Raoufi has an extraordinary bedside manner. His expertise in his field and his procedural skill combine to make him hands down the best Gastroenterologist on the Central Coast. I both a nurse and his patient, so I should know!!

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.
