I haven't met a doctor like him. I couldn't believe when he started explaining my condition with such patience. Most of the other docs I have met who are eager to finish as fast as possible without even considering the needs of the patient. I consulted Dr. Rahman for thyroid. He was almost taking a class on thyroid to make me understand every bit of it. Most importantly he asked me to focus on life style changes and mentioned a clear list of dos and donts . Truly a genuine polite professional. I would strongly recommend this doctor to others.
I found Dr. Rahaman as gem of a person. He is very polite and soft spoken. I took my mom whose sugar level was very high to his clinic at newtown.My mom's sugar level was not getting down though she was on good balanced diet and was taking her medicines on time. He patiently listened to my mom and saw all her previous reports.On basis of that he prescribed some medicines. It's been 5 days since we visited him, my mom's sugar level has got down and we are hoping it would reach normal level soon. one thing that I would definitely like to add here is that Dr. Rahaman gives time to his patients which we generally don't see in other doctors.
I would like to thanks Dr Rahman for his simplicity and humble behaviour with patients.most importantly he is very much approachable for any queries...He is deem fit as a honest doctor who only give medicines on the basis of investigation.Best regards.
I enjoyed a very patient friendly environment with him. I saw him as advisor, as philosopher and a guide as a whole for the patient.
