A person of radiant positivity, Dr. Sam Rassoul has always seeked to bring out the best in those around him. A graduate of Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO., Dr. Rassoul learned the uniqueness of the chiropractic profession through not only its art and philosophy, but importantly upon its evidence-based scientific foundation. Dr. Rassoul specializes in various areas of spinal-related musculoskeletal pain in the neck, back, extremity numbness and tingling, headaches, Fibromyalgia, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, and sports injuries. Utilizing a comprehensive consultation, examination, and digital x-rays (as needed), Dr. Rassoul is able to diagnosis and treat the root cause of a patient's musculoskeletal complaints through a diverse care plan which includes, but is not limited to, chiropractic manipulation of the spine and/or extremities, low volt electrical stimulation, ultrasound, rehabilitative exercises, and spinal decompression therapy. Furthermore, Dr. Rassoul treats abnormal digestive and organ disorders and/or dysfunctions. As a certified Internal Health Specialist, Dr. Rassoul addresses the body's need to combat stress in form of chronic inflammation/irritation via enzyme therapy and nutrition. Dr. Rassoul's extensive work in the application of all-natural digestive and nutritional enzymes to aid in the support of the digestive and other organ systems of the body helps eliminate problematic signs and symptoms and promote a steady state of health and wellness. This system of nutritional supplementation allows the patient to help reduce the body's chemical stresses and, in turn, promote the body's ability to reap the benefits of proper digestion and utilization of dietary foods and nutrients. Prior to chiropractic college, Dr. Rassoul earned his bachelor's and master's degrees in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Miami, FL. Dr. Rassoul then went on to work for Boston Scientific Corporation (BSC), a worldwide leader in medical devices. Splitting his time and efforts between BSC's plants in Miami, FL and Glens Falls, NY, Dr. Rassoul led a team of consultants in a company wide validation project of all operational systems in the respective plants. A member of the American Chiropractic Association, Florida Chiropractic Association, and Dade County Chiropractic Society, Dr. Rassoul is fluent in English and Farsi (Persian). He enjoys exercising, cooking, nutrition, college football, and playing sports such as soccer and basketball.
Dr. Rassoul employs an evidence-based approach in the evaluation and execution of any and all treatment plans for his patients. Through a thorough consultation and examination with the patient (and digital x-rays as needed), Dr. Rassoul is able to pinpoint the root cause of the patient's chief complaint, but more importantly, he is able to establish a goal for the treatment plan that aims to resolve the restrictions that the complaint is keeping the patient from accomplishing. Pain serves as merely one hurdle in the aimed accomlishments for the treatment plan, for Dr. Rassoul and his patients strive to fix the problem and ensure the patient is able to accomplish activities of daily living without fear or risk of future injury.
Dr. Rassoul always present an honest assessment of the timetables associated with each goal for his patients and discuss what goals the patient wants to achieve with the treatment plan: Pain Relief, Tissue Repair, or Body Rejuvenation. Thus, both the patient and doctor are on the same page from day 1 of the treatment plan and work together to ensure that all of the patient's goals are properly addressed and met in a reasonable time.
Dr. Rassoul does not have any board certifications listed.

What is medical malpractice?
Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.
How far back does Healthgrades malpractice history go?

If a provider practices in a state where data is unavailable, please reach out to your local state legislature to help make this data publicly available.
No sanctions history found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?
Healthgrades reports state and federal sanctions from the previous five years, except when a doctor's license has been revoked or surrendered. Healthgrades displays all actions for doctors whose licenses have been revoked or surrendered.
For which states does Healthgrades collect sanction history?
Healthgrades collects sanction history from all 50 U.S. states. Physicians with a disciplinary action in one state may move to another state where they have a clean record. Since Healthgrades painstakingly compiles disciplinary action information from all 50 states, Healthgrades website will show if a physician has a disciplinary action in more than one state.
0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
