If you're skeptical like me, despite all the great reviews, and are tired of going from doctor to doctor, read on. I had a severe allergic reaction for the first time ever, and needed a quick appointment with an allergist. Ihad only a month to find out what happened, and how to deal with it, as I was leaving the country in three weeks time on vacation (cue the dramatic music). I went to my primary physician to let him know what happened, and got a few referrals... except the two or three allergist referrals my physician gave me were not available until THREE MONTHS AFTER that date. Wtf?That was not gonna work for me. I looked on ZocDoc and I decided to put my faith in Dr. Rahimian. He has two offices, one in my area, and the other a train ride away; I've been to both, they're clean, professional, and the receptionists are great to talk to and joke around with, but also very professional. They took me in that same week. Dr. Rahimian himself is a miracle worker. I like to over prepare, so I got any documents I needed, an ingredient list of everything I ate prior to the allergic reaction, any and everything under the sun, and he even let my boyfriend accompany us in the patient room for support with my consent. He listened to me babble about what happened along with all of my questions, concerns, and oh lord did I mention the questions!? He let me finish what I had to say, answered all of my questions, and proceeded to give me the most thorough explanation of how he wanted to direct my case and put it all in layman's terms for me. Side note, I had an allergy panel done with my primary doctor and he didn't even want to look at it; he wanted to look at his own findings... boss move. Dr. Rahimian made sure all of my future appointments worked for both of us. He takes his work very seriously and it is a true blessing to have a doctor that loves what he does. I've never had a trouble with my allergies since, and my vacation went great. TL;DR He loves what he does, and it shows. I recommend him to all of my friends, and now you, reader.

He is very friendly in manner, good listener & explains everything very well whether it's a instruction or about any disease. I never felt anybody hiding me anything & I've to follow him blindly as I know nothing! I also liked-that he gives any decision after asking/ getting sufficient information & it gave me lot of satisfaction.

He was very nice and listened to everything I had to say. I didn’t feel rushed and also felt like I was in the hands of a smart and friendly professional. The office area was a little questionable because it lookedold and outdated but the doctor himself and his staff were nice. 10/10 would recommend. I hope they stay nice! D:

doctor was pleasant enough. testing adequate but office was horrible. wallpaper peeling. lock on bathroom door was broken. if they tolerate this slopiness in the office what does that say about their attention to detail. office staff hurriednot paying attention to detail. doc too rushed. juggling too man people. doc did not listen or treat me as individual. got the feeling he was phoning in his job. nothing extra.

I'm not too upset with the doctor really. It was the hassle with everything and everyone else. I was hung up on 4 times by his secretary, assistant, receptionist or whatever. When asked if I can have a note for myjob, I was told to call or come in the next day. When i showed up the next morning. I was told the doctor isn't in that day. Next to receive paper work for a completely different person. That didn't make me feel good about my information being given to some stranger. The office is very unprofessional. The hassle I experience was more than enough to cancel my next appointment

I've been suffering from eczema for a long time! He really took the time to get to know me, my history, any known allergies, habits, etc. After he ran a test he explained in full detail how my body works/responds andeven settled some of my nerves that I had. I left feeling super hopeful that he will help me find a solution! I highly recommend.
