I really appreciate what you have done to help me. You are the first doctor to give me hope and make me feel important. I am at ease for the first time since my diagnosis and that feeling is priceless. Thank you so much for everything. You are awesome!

A truly outstanding doctor. He helped me through my colonoscopy and made it such a comfortable experience. Thank you to you and your excellent office staff.

I have had diarrhoea for ages. Dr Rahman did the colonoscopy. I was dreading it but it was fine. He is a very good colonoscopist. At the end, he diagnosed me with SIBO and gave me the right treatment. I am all better now. I have not felt so well for years. Thank you very much for giving me my life back.

I didn’t want to go to the doctor. I have been suffering with rectal bleeding and altered bowel habits for a while. I eventually settled on Dr Rahman and I am pleased I did. He did a colonoscopy with no problems at all and skilfully removed a couple of growths in the bowel (not cancerous thankfully). I am feeling much better now and am looking forward to a repeat colonoscopy next year to make sure that no new ones have grown.

I took one of your suggestions to heart and I cut milk out of my diet. The effects have been fantastic and this looks like the final missing piece of the puzzle. For the first time in a few years I feel like a normal person.
