This is the best doctor I have ever been to. Dr. Vahid genuinely loves what he does and care for his patients . He explained everything very clearly and really tried helping my issue. His staff is also very nice, theyhelp me right away and do care about making people feel well. The wait time was very short and they let people know about how long is going to take. Dr. Vahid was extremely respect and professional. This doctor is a great place to go and I would extremely recommend.

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.

I had to go through several rounds of allergy testing because my body wasn't responding - even though we knew I was allergic to multiple things. Dr. Rahimian was patient and good-natured about the ordeal and made sure that I hadmedications that helped my allergies when I had to stay off antihistamines while I was getting tested for multiple rounds. Very friendly office.
