My daughter has suffered from a multitude of gastrointestinal problems for 5+ years. Other doctors we tried would prescribe meds that never helped or even sometimes hurt her. Many times after these appointments, we were left feeling utterly hopeless. When my daughter got to a place where her body stopped absorbing nutrients; was severely underweight; and could eat nothing but 2-3 food items (because every other food hurt her,) I researched holistic doctors who would take a different approach from the useless western medical approaches we already tried. I found Dr Rahbar on Yelp from someone’s review. I messaged that person privately and she told me that out of the many GI doctors she tried, Dr Rahbar was far and away the best GI doctor she ever went to. Thank God for her because she was right. And his approach was not “you just have to live with IBS forever - bummer for you.” (I actually had another respected GI doctor pretty much say that to her, but minus the word “bummer.”) It’s been under a year since our first visit with Dr Rahbar, and though it’s been a long, steady process of healing and repairing, I’m so happy to be able to say that my daughter is now 80% well and still on an upward trajectory. Before she saw him, she was so sick. As a desperate mom who would have done anything to get my daughter healthy again, this a miraculous improvement. I seriously had little to no hope before meeting Dr. Rahbar. I’m so grateful for not only his warm, caring attitude, but his deductive plan of attack to narrow in on my daughter’s very specific problems. (And she has many going on, it’s not just one problem.) Finding Dr Rahbar was like finding gold. I know that sounds overly effusive, but if you’re a parent who is desperate to find healing for your child, then you’ll understand why I feel that intensely. My daughter has a bit more healing to do in her future, but I finally have hope. And I do see light at the end of this very dark tunnel. Thank you Dr. Rahbar!
