We had our visit with Dr Rah and was surprised if her lack of knowledge of how gallbladders work. My wife has a distended gallbladder and told the doctor of her pains. Dr Rah said it shouldn't be very painful, almost like having to take a pee with a full bladder. Turns out after leaving without having the right questions answered that the pains are very chronic and could be potentially life threatening. Fortunately we researched otherwise my wife would of not lived and another doctor had answers

She didn't listen to me, assumed that I was on medication (when I wasn't), and wanted me to make another appointment just to go over my results. I question her ethics.

I just had another visit with Dr Rah who is desperately trying to help me with a very difficult situation, but with persistence patience and experience she has me feeling so much better. Dr Rah has been my doctor for the last eight years and I have sent numerous patients to her. Thank you Dr Rah for taking such good care of me. E.C.

My husband and I both had horrible experiences with Dr. Rah. Concerns are on multiple levels: 1)lack of respect for patients by showing up late for appts both in the office and at the colonoscopy clinic 2) lack of ethics in trying to sell patients everything from botox to skin treatments to supplements, and overpricing the colonoscopy prep kits, 3) poor clinical skills and misdiagnosis, which finally had to be cleared up by another GI specialist. Avoid this doctor! Ethics are a big problem.

I recommend Dr. Rah to both female & male patients that are suffering from any GI issue. I experienced the worse pain of my life, and Dr. Rah was the only doctor who was able to help me in a urgent matter. She had saved my miserable life! The pain I was going thru due to fissure was extremely bad that I could not move for months. But with the right treatment Dr. Rah had given, I am now back to my normal daily life. I cannot thank her enough! I'm glad I found her.

I had my first colonoscopy with Dr. Rah 3 years ago (at 32) due to family history of colon cancer. At 32, she removed 3 pre-cancerous polyps and potentially saved my life. The experience was a great one--take it from a hypochondriac and anxiety sufferer. The prep was the worst part (but I like to approach it as though I am doing a cleanse)..then it's not so bad. I just had my second colonoscopy and the experience was again wonderful. I highly recommend Dr. Rah. Thank you for everything.

Dr. Rah is very professional and caring and incorporates a healthy balance between the importance of nutrition and medicine. Not only is her office calming but so is she, which we find is a treasure these days.
