I spent three years suffering from terrible back pain and had little hope that I could get better. I met with Dr. Rahman and he discussed all of the possible options to treat my back pain. I decided on back surgery and three months later I can't believe how much better I am feeling. Dr. Rahman is a lifesaver. I can walk straight and the horrible pain down my leg has mostly gone away. I feel like I have my life back. Thank you so much Dr. Rahman.

I was in bad shape due to some chronic issues that were made worse by an accident. Being in my early 50s I had to accept that I needed surgery. Dr. Shayan Rahman's work really improved my mobility and removed most of my pain. It has changed me a lot and I am much happier. I never should have waited so long for the surgery but I was afraid. Thank you DOC!

I'm a 63 years young man who was having serious chronic back pain. Dr. Rahman performed a surgery for me and relieved me of my pain. It's a bit more complicated than this but suffice to say that he really saved my life. I can exercise and I can sleep through the night (mostly, except for having to go to the bathroom!). I love him and I owe him a debt of gratitude. Thank you so much Dr. Rahman!

I just wanted to thank Dr. Rahman and tell you that you changed my life and my family's life as well. You operated on my back recently. I now can play sports and engage in other activities thanks to your work. I am a 54 year old and I was in terrible pain, with so much of my life limited because of it. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was very scared going into the surgery but since I have been largely pain-free. The recovery process was not easy though and I commend you on explaining that!

I am a 52 year-old male with chronic back problems. I was diagnosed with a variety of spinal issues, too serious and numerous to describe here. I just want to write that Dr. Rahman's treatment changed my life. He performed a surgery that enabled my pain to go away completely and give me more range of motion. I now have the ability to play more actively with my children (before they get too old) and to restart my golf game. Thank You Dr. Rahman so very much!

I'm a 67 year-old female and I was having great difficulty with my hands and legs. I was feeling lots of pain and they were just not working properly. Dr. Rahman fused my neck after decompressing my cervical spinal cord. I immediately had improved sensation and I am doing great. I am sure I would have been paralyzed if not for Dr. Shayan's wonderful work. I cannot begin to tell you what this operation meant for me and my husband. I feel like my old, slightly younger self again and it is awesome.

I did not expect my body to break down so quickly after I hit 45. Dr. Rahman did an 8 hour long surgery reconstructing my neck and lower back because of my rare spinal fungal infection that was causing me great pain and limiting my mobility. My recovery time was long, way way too long but I am walking again! I was so worried before my surgery. I owe Dr. Rahman a huge debt of gratitude!

Arrogant and condescending, unhelpful, doesn't do well with feedback. Isn't client centered, doesn't listen to needs and has his own agenda!!!
