Dr. Merajur Rahman, MD

Gastroenterologist, Internist

Professional statement

Growing up, I experienced gastrointestinal problems first hand. Understanding the interactions between the different aspects of these diseases sparked my curiosity in the field of gastroenterology. What I enjoy most about gastroenterology is the balance between decision-making and therapeutic intervention. Gastrointestinal problems are often chronic and require a longterm treatment plan. My philosophy of care is to give the patient a voice in creating a treatment plan that will be most beneficial to them. By giving patients a voice, we can establish a long-term relationship with the patient while developing a personalized treatment strategy. I believe in creating an authentic rapport with my patients. By giving them the individual attention they deserve, I am able to gather further information to enhance my treatment options and help educate them about their illnesses. I hope to provide all my patients with excellent and comprehensive care in a compassionate, comforting environment. Personally, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies and playing football.

The doctor gave me a panic attack by listing things I could have. Then sent me to the ER because I was short of breath. I didn’t feel like I was taken care of and actually left worried. Turns out it was a digestive issue not a heart issue.

Dr. Rahman was great. I came to him for a second opinion about symptoms I have experiencing for many months. He took his time to explain possibilities and options to me. I left confident knowing I would try what he hadrecommended and would have a thorough follow up appointment to assess any progress or regression.

Dr. Rahman is an amazing doctor to visit for any digestive issues you are experiencing. As a first time patient there weren't that many forms to fill out and the wait time was less than 5 min! The front desk staffwere very polite and professional. Dr. Rahman took his time and explained to me what was going on and made me feel very comfortable. I look forward to seeing him again for my follow up visit and definitely recommend him as a doctor to visit!
