Dr. Aly Rahimtoola IMMEDIATELY took me off a medication that was the source of my problem & prescribed one that was effective. I am very grateful to him for that. He immediately saw the problem & corrected it to my benefit.

Dr. Rahimtoola has allways been excellent every time I have seen him over the years. He has allways been thorough and exact . I get the feeling he is really an expert.
Providence Health & Services Patient

At the beginning of my appointment the doctor seemed uninterested in my [...]. As the appointment progressed he seemed to take me more seriously and showed more care and interest.
Providence Health & Services Patient

I was seen promptly and in a very professional manner. My provider explained what was happening to me in terms I could understand and reassured me that the tests he was ordering for me would give a better picture of what was happening, but that it was not a life or death situation. He prescribed medicine to thin my blood.
Providence Health & Services Patient

Everyone has been wonderful. my only complaint is that I can't get ahold of Providence hospital to schedule my Cardiac MRI and have tried many times. I have spent of 3hours on hold and still no appointment.
Providence Health & Services Patient

the doctor had poor bedside manner. was very matter of fact and didn't ask my thoughts but more like a drill sergeant telling me what to do
Providence Health & Services Patient

Just plain like how he gets the job done.
Providence Health & Services Patient

I felt like the Doctor thought that my symptoms were imagined or nothing to worry about. [...] I assumed that he felt that I was a complainer. My symptoms have never been worse than they were prior to this annual visit. And I was concerned enough to make my appointment early. He did order a heart monitor to wear for 48 hours unfortunately I did not have any of the issues that cause me concern while wearing it.
