Although, it took over 1 1/2 hours waiting to see the Dr. he explained my situation very well and seemed to know what he was talking about. I was completely satisfied with his explanation during the visit. Great staff.

I've had back pain for over 1 year and was seeing other back doctors. I decided to get a second opinion and dr Rahman told me I needed surgery. I had the surgery and have been doing great for 6 years. He's straight forward and honest. Really great surgeon. Thank you
