Integrative holistic medicine is the art and science that addresses the “whole-person” to bring body functions to optimal performance.
A “whole-person” approach involves the ability of the physician to address multiple aspects of mind & body, lifestyle & nutrition, inflammation, infections, immune system, toxic burden, allergies, hormone balancing, and most importantly, the gut integrity. At LA Integrative Gastroenterology, we endorse such an innovative approach to digestive care.

You will not find a more caring, compassionate, and smart doctor like Dr. Rahbar!! This man goes above & beyond for his patients. He truly is the greatest doctor I have every worked with in 10yrs of chronic illness. I feel so fortunate to have him as part of my complex care team. He is one of kind, and you will not meet another doctor like him in 2020 most don't practice medicine the way he does. He is a true gem and great gift to the medical community and the patients he serves!
I visited Dr. Rahbar after having several GI and non GI complications over the years. On my first visit I was surprised how attentive his staff and Dr. Rahbar were to my needs. My initial visit when on for 2 hours as Dr. Rahbar asked detailed questions about my medical and personal history. It spoke to his holistic approach to find deeper issues that were affecting me which no other doctor had asked before. Living overseas also draws on new complications and treatment options (medicine, visits, etc.), however, he has worked with telemedicine before covid (amazing). After several lab tests, I walked away with a newfound sense of relief and resolve to find my root cause for my issues. Highly recommended!
I’ve been working with Dr Rahbar for about a year now and my gut health has improved drastically. At the time of my first appointment, I had zero motility; now I’m able to go daily! I had a terrible case of SIBO, infection in my mouth that was going into my gut, and mold in my sinuses and my gut. No wonder I was having so many issues! I had been to countless doctors who only diagnosed me with IBS - and did very little testing. I had a colonoscopy and was tested for celiac, both showing negative results for anything. Dr Rahbar is truly the most knowledgeable, caring, helpful doctor I’ve ever met and I’m beyond blessed to be under his care!
Excellent doctor, very sympathetic to the patient and his symptoms, listens and actually hears what bothers you, very resourceful, extremely knowledgeable, nice, kind and deeply cares about your well being. The best doctor you can possibly imagine!
