“My disabled father received an acupuncture session from Dr. Rahim and walked out of the building without his cane. He felt like a million bucks. He stated that Dr. Rahim was one of the nicest doctors he ever had the pleasure of speaking with and an amazing acupuncturist. I myself was shocked at how great my father felt and walked after his therapy. 10 out of 10 would recommend. Make your appointments now they get quite booked. It seems everyone wants to hire the best.”
