I have been visiting Dr Rahman and his Clinic for 4 years and find the standard of care to be outstanding. I am very happy with my care.
I felt in very good hands, had lots of opportunity to ask what I wanted. Dr Rahman listens well, and makes me feel I have choices.
I highly recommend Dr Rahman and trust him.
Dr Rahman has always taken the time to explain any treatment to me – he has gone above and beyond – showing me presentations and research results to put me at ease.
