Dr. Nazir A Rahim has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I have seen him a few times over the years and have never had any problems. He was always very knowledgeable and caring. He took the time to answer my questions to my satisfaction.

Dr Rahim is very personable, he treats his patients with respect and makes sure that you are as comfortable as can be for your condition. I saw him at Mercy of Folsom , a Hospital I would more than highly recommend, due to their constant and professional care. The staf at Mercy was as good as they get and way better than most. Dr. Rahim and the Mercy staff places the patients comfort above all, Though you don't see your Doctor as often as you would like for information about your condition, Both Dr. Rahim and the staff were there when you needed them. If there was on issue with the doctor that he could work on is his personal contact and clarity of what is going to be performed and why. On a better note I was diagnosed almost immediately and surgery was performed the following morning. I have been to other Hospitals in this area only to be put in a room and wait for over 7 hours before I even saw a doctor, this happened 3 times and I would never recommend another hospital in El Dorado County again. I was in fact driving myself to my personal physician all the way to Stockton in hope that I could find a Hospital that cares about their patients, but the pain had grown so severe that I decided to go to Mercy Hospital and it was the best choice I have ever made in my life. I have been to many but only one has gone over and above with treatment and care for their patients., God Bless them all.
