Using a variety of techniques, I help provide sustained relief while improving quality of life.”

Dr. Rahman is board certified in anesthesiology with a sub-specialty certification in pain management. He earned a Master of Science degree in hyperbaric medicine from Saba University in the Netherlands. He then earned a medical degree from the same university.

Patient ratings
Star ratings and comments are only available for medical, radiation and gynecologic oncologists. Gynecologic surgical offerings are not included at this time due to a different survey tool required to evaluate these services. CTCA uses a validated Press Ganey® survey, which captures patient experience feedback for the primary oncology services of chemotherapy and radiation therapy at our comprehensive care and research centers. Following industry best practice, star ratings and comments are only published for physicians with a minimum of 30 completed patient surveys.
