Self-verified patient of Dr. Sharan Abdul-Rahman - Posted on October 30th, 2017
She diagnosis with HPV and I found out that I didn't have the virus. She wanted to a procedure on my even though, I had 2 normal pap smears, really? She's charging former patients $25 for a copy of your records. In the state of Pennsylvania, you get one free copy. This could explain why her practice was down in 2009.

As a healthcare provider, it is always impossible to find the doctor you will trust without reservation. Dr Abdul-Rahman has the easy, polite manners. I enjoyed having her as my doctor. Office has a patient portal, you can see your results promptly, and you can send messages, if you have questions.

Awful bedside manner. Doesn't seem to care at all.

I am brand new to Philly, and needed my birth control refilled by the end of the month. Called Jefferson Hospital to schedule an appointment. 30 minutes of being on hold later, the receptionist finally worked out an appointment for me in 3 days at Dr.Sharan Abdul-Rahman's office. The receptionist mentioned that Dr. Rahman is usually fairly easy to get into see because she ONLY does GYN, instead of the OB-GYN. I was somewhat skeptical due to her wide open availability but hey why not. The sooner the better, right?Wrong.I entered the building, elevatored up to the 3rd floor, and walked into a small office with 3 waiting room chairs. The receptionist (Priya) was a doll. She quickly handed me the paperwork, checked my insurance info, and took my cash payment copay (they WILL charge you a ridiculous $3 processing fee if you use credit card. So be sure to have cash/check.) I waited for about 5 minutes tops before the 25-year old nurse brought me back into this closet-like space to take my blood pressure, and ask me about 40 health questions. Standard procedure. She really didn't seem to care about my personal life or general wellbeing AT ALL. Rolling through her list of questions, listening to my answers while she stares at the computer screen, click.. .click.. click, next question. I had a couple concerns that I wanted to discuss with the doctor, but the nurse really didn't seem to care. click.. click click.. next question. height. weight. next.. next.. next.. no smile or eye contact. It was awkward to say the very least.And that was just the start! She led me to the exam room and said, go ahead and put the gown on and have a seat. Before I knew it, she shut the door and was back to her miserable day. Yeesh.A couple minutes later, Dr. Rahman came in and shook my hand. (I thought to myself, "this might be an okay visit after all." Dr. Rahman is a 50-year old African American doctor who seems very nice at first. Until you start discussing your health concerns. I tried to explain how my PMS symptoms were getting awful, and since my mother had Endometriosis, I knew that I had to jump on any possible issues before they get worse. I couldn't believe this, but she started almost arguing with me! I tried to explain slowly what was happening, and what I wanted to discuss (alternate birth control methods the shot, IUD, the rod, etc.) Instead of listening to me, I felt this horrible argumentative defensive vibe from Dr. Rahman. She kept saying, "I don't understand." Aren't you the doctor here, Dr.Rahman? I came to you to discuss a very sensitive matter regarding my health, and you just say that you don't understand?? Well, good God. Find me someone who can try to understand!!!The exam went fine. She was quick and very professional.At the end of the appointment, I also mentioned a bladder issue that I've been dealing with for years and too embarrassed to deal with it before.. would like to get it maybe checked out. She said, "talk to your primary physician. Take care" and walked out of the room. That's it? I just told you that I'm new to Philly, and that's all the help you can give? What an ENORMOUS WASTE OF TIME. If you want an annual exam that doesn't involve personal health concern discussion and ONLY want a fast annual exam for the prescription refill, than by all means.. she's great for you. I will never recommend Dr.Sharan Abdul-Rahman's office to anyone, nor will they ever see me in that office again. No wonder she doesn't deal with pregnant women/OB. If I was pregnant, I would be FURIOUS at her lack of interest in my health concerns.Never again. Ugh. Worst GYN visit I have ever had.
