Dr. Rafiq U Rahman has the following 4 specialties
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- Hematology & Oncology
- 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.

Dr. Rahman is an amazing doctor!! He listens and will recomand only the best for his patients! He took care of my husband 15 years ago and now I am his patient! When I was told I had to see a hemotologist dr. Rahman is the only one I would go to! I can honestly say he is the only doctor that I have ever met that actually cares about his patients!! And I know for a fact my husband felt the same way about him!!!
I was refered to Dr. Rahman by PCP. I didnt have insurance, but was on the DSH Program at HMH. I went to my appt. And they told me that my office visits would be discounted bcause I was on the DSH PROGRAM. Well I hardly consider $250.00 each visit a discount especially when the man never even so much as put a stethascope on me. He talked into a microphone attached to his lab top the whole time. Then sent me for labs, a CT scan and a bone scan.went for follow up about 3 weeks later. Bone scan came back clean, ct scN showed nodule in lower lobe of right lung, and labs showed I was Anemic and had auto immune disease probably Lupus.he sent me for more labs and had me come back 2 weeks later and told me there was nothin wrong. So at this point $750.00 in dept to him. And I was left scratching my head with one question in mind, Is it a miracle or is dude a quack??? I will not pay him his$750 and I wouldnt take a dog to him. Beings that I found out today I have cancer on my tailbone called Choradoma and that it had to have been there a year ago when I was seeing him due to its size and that U of K hospital seen it clear as day on another bonescan. He might have been good at one time in his younger years but I think he is just in it for the money now. For real how are you gonna see a patient 3 times knowing he is broke, unemployed and didnt have insurance and charge him that kind money. And not tell them anything. HE Can kiss my A$$ and I wouldnt pay him if I was a millionare. I hope he gets cancer and gives himself some of his professional care. What a joke!!!! He is washed up and needs to retire before someone ends up putting a malpractice lawsuit on him.
First I worked at H M H for 21 yrs. and saw this man at work daily.My husband had lung ca.18 yrs. ago and suffered horribly.Only lived 10 months.We got Dr.Rahman for his Dr.because i saw on a regular bases what a gentle caring man he is.He was so good to Eddie.When he passed I took him ,Dr.Rahman ,as my family Then ( yrs. ago I had breast Cancer.Was Blessed and caught it early.Dr.Rahman sent me to Brown ca. center for second opinion of treatment.They agreed with him.Had lumpectomy and 1 week of radiation twice a day.Dr.Rahman sees me on a regular bases with blood test and scans every yr. to make sure nothing slips up on us.I could never say enough good things about this man.He is the most caring ,kind, gentle and sweet Dr. I have ever been to and i have had many.His concern for his patients is genuine.I'd refer him to any and everybody who has cancer.Wonderful Dr.May God richly Bless this man!
