Dr.Rahm knew nothing about the situation. I, The spouse, had to explain his condition and ask him to check the testing he had the previous day. He was so rude. He felt of feet and said " Well you have a GUT how much alcohol do you drink" Then during the conversation he said "I have several reasons not to do surgery on you but IF THERE Wasn't so MUCH OF YOU it would be better" My husband was so humiliated he was ready to leave at this point.If Dr,Rahm could have just said he didn't feel comfortable doing surgery on him . Instead he put him down and we left hanging our head. If my husband was a heavy drinker or over weight man I still would expect a doctor to have a little respect. He is neither, but now feels there is no reason to see a doctor and will choose to just be unable to walk. Thankfully he has a medication that is helping with the pain. No thanks to Dr.Rahm. If he treats all his patients like this how can he stay in practice. Yes we are just an older couple on medicare but he should never send anyone away feeling like we did that day.

This was my 2nd contact with Dr. Rahm. Dr. Rahm performed my very successful lumbar surgery 7 years ago. When my most recent DX. of Cervical Neuropathy and recommendations for surgical intervention was made, I requested to be referred to Dr. Rahm.

I appreciated Dr. Rahm's calm explanations. His honesty and humility were a breath of fresh air in a world filled with doctors who let their ego be boss. I'm very thankful to have met him and gotten answers to the pressing questions I had.
