Ratings for Dr. Farshid Sam Rahbar
This is my hero doctor! He diagnosed me with Lyme Disease after 3 years of going up and down California's Coast doctor after doctor. I knew when he walked through the door that he was the doctor that would figure it out, because he sat down and LISTENED to my symptoms. Lyme was the last thing I thought I had, because I had suggested it to two doctors before who essentially laughed; another gastrointerolgist who didn't "believe" in SIBO, and a naturopath that I saw for over a year with what turned out to be SIBO among other things. I have referred about 10 friends to him for gastro symptoms and he is brilliant, carrying and has figured out all of them. I have been healthy and lyme free for two years now.
21 months of nausea and dizziness. 38 Beverly Hills MDs and specialists; psychopharmacologists and shrinks; homeopaths and other assorted quacks. Dozens of labs, scans, colonoscopies, endoscopies, digestion tests and a rash of dangerous psychopharmaceuticals. Zero diagnoses. My gf was told that her symptoms were in her head. When we found Dr. Rahbar it became clear that her doctors were blaming the wrong body part. For over 20 years, this regal yet gentle man has been practicing integrative digestive medicine, examining each patient's medical history and lifestyle to tailor-make treatment plans. He was the first to examine the details of my gf's life and medical history with a focus on what she puts into her stomach - and he zeroed-in on her condition immediately. His dietary rules improved her symptoms by 80% within the first few weeks and she continues to heal. Sadly, few physicians like Dr. Rahbar practice with such passion anymore. We're forever grateful for all he's done.
This is the best gastroenterologist in the county of Los Angeles. I got sick with GERD in 2001. I took every medicine that was ever prescribed. I had surgery. I tried every diet that I could to find the reason why my stomach and esophagus were always burning. No help, no relief. Then I met Dr. Rahbar. He gave me a breath test, which I had never had before. He found a widespread bacterial infection in my small intestine based on the breath test. He told me to eliminate all sugary foods and severely limit carbohydrates which would starve out the bacteria. It worked!! Pain free for months now! No drugs, no surgery. Farshid Rahbar is an honest to goodness doctor. Patient and kind. Five stars. No, ten.
