This Dr. Syed Rahman is the worst Dr . save your copay go somewhere else. He doesn't listen to your concern.He is very rude in the way he speaks over the phone. He doesn't care about anyone but there money. I have been to dr. Before. Unless like a Dr who hangs up on you doesn't think people should have feelings . Run cause this man is nice in person and when he speaks to you on the phone treats you like a worthless human. Plus he doesn't care if your health affects your personal life. He is useless. Only can read reports.

Dr. Rahman is a very good doctor. He takes his time to explain things to you and he doesn't push any extra things on your that you may not need. I much appreciated this. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a PCP.

I got in early but the patient before me needed time to evaluate. Once I got in I told him my problem he knew exactly what was up and I was in and out in 10mins so it was worth the little wait.

Doctor was in a rush and didn’t even examine me. The same problem again and again nothing works in the office when the medical assistant Ofelia is not there. They shouls just close the office and not see patients when Ofelia is out because everything is a mess and nobody knows anything. The doctor doesn’t even know the medicine the patients are taking, at least not mine.

I was a patient of Dr. Rahman for more than two years. At the beginning it was fine but things started to get bad and it was just worse from there. The medical assistants keep changing all the time and it seems that they don’t know what they are doing. The office literally doesn’t function if the main medical assistant is not there because she is in charge of everything. Getting prescriptions became a nightmare. I changed my primary care doctor because I didn’t want to keep going there.

I only waited a little bit too long because it was my first time visiting Dr. Rahman; otherwise I could see that everyone, including myself, would eventually be called in in a Tim ely manner. In addition, the PA was very nice and professional. And Dr. Rahman was very professional, respectful, and proficient. Overall, I would definitely recommend seeking him as your PCP.
