Dr. Rahimi and his staff are very professional and attentive to their patients. I went to Dr. Rahimi for follow up on a previous surgery performed by another surgeon that had complications. I did my research and learned that Dr. Rahimi is a gifted vascular surgeon. You can view an actual carotid artery surgery performed by Dr, Rahimi for teaching purposes on you-tube. He came highly recommended by my neurologist and after my appointment with Dr. Rahimi I was happy I made the switch.

On 12/10 I spoke with a receptionist, John, in Dr. Rahimi's office regarding an urgent - i.e., life threatening - medical issue that required a consultation with Dr. Rahimi. John let me know that the earliest appointment was more than 4 weeks out, which I found unacceptable. After further explaining the urgency of the issue and the severity of health implications, John maintained that there was nothing he could do help obtain an expedited appointment. What was even more startling was his complete lack of empathy and lack of interest in helping solve the problem, repeating several times "there's nothing I can do." His attitude was at odds with what people in the medical practice should aspire to. I wold be very concerned with any office, and frankly any physician or surgeon, that would accept this low level of care. If you raised an issue with an online purchase of socks, you would get more care than this. Completely unacceptable; stay away from Dr. Rahimi and his office.
