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.
At LA Integrative Gastroenterology & Nutrition, our approach is not just holistic but also integrative. We blend the best of Western medical and scientific research with the concept of whole-body relationships to optimize your health in Los Angeles

Dr. Farshid Sam Rahbar and his team incorporate the best of Western medicine and scientific research with integrative and functional medicine to deliver a holistic approach to digestive care. Integrative medicine addresses all aspects of a patient’s wellness, working to heal the condition causing the symptoms instead of just relieving symptoms.
The whole-person approach allows Dr. Rahbar and his team to address a patient’s mind and body by considering their lifestyle and nutrition. They look for the cause of inflammation, infection, immune system dysfunction, allergies, hormonal issues, and gut integrity. This approach helps patients improve and enhance their overall health as digestive problems often cause symptoms throughout the body.
My first visit with Dr Rahbar left me feeling hopeful. It’s very refreshing to meet with a doctor who listens intently, asks a lot of questions, and offers encouragement and recommendations. I’m looking forward to my follow up appointment to receive the results of the tests the doctor ordered to try to get to the root of the problem. While medications are offered, they weren’t shoved down my throat. I felt heard and know I was “seen,” by not just the doctor, but all of the staff. I highly recommend LA integrative Gastroenterology and in fact, am encouraging my mom to set up an appointment, too!
My first appointment with Dr. Rhabar was great! He is kind, patient and caring. He takes the time to get to know you and all your medical history as he is very thorough. No matter how many symptoms you may have, he is not overwhelmed, and his mission is to find a way to help his patients. He also works to find solutions for testing that can work within your budget. I am hopeful for the first time in 20 years that perhaps someone may finally be able to help me figure out what I need to do to feel better.
I've seen more than my fair share of doctors and Dr Rahbar stands out for his professionalism, compassion, attention to detail, and ability to listen to his patient. He clearly has an overriding passion to help people and stay on top of all the latest developments in his incredibly complex field of medicine, and he always keeps an eye on the bottom line by suggesting the best priced options. Finally, all doctors could take a leaf out of his book with client management, he uses a portal for tracking communication and case history that keeps everything easy to manage (from both a patient and doctor perspective) so that complicated case histories are fully appreciated and, if you'll pardon the terrible pun, digested!
