Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Board-certified gastroenterologist Dr. Farshid Sam Rahbar of LA Integrative Gastroenterology and Nutrition in Los Angeles has been recognized for his unique and caring approach to medicine as a recipient of a 2012 Patients' Choice Award. The Patients' Choice Award is granted to only a select number of doctors across America for their exemplary work in medicine and compassion for their patients.
“Integrative holistic medicine is an art and a science based around making people feel younger and healthier,” said Dr. Rahbar of Los Angeles. “It has always been my goal to provide my patients with the best treatment options available, so I feel honored that my patients have voted to award me with this recognition."
The Patients' Choice honor is given to doctors who provide incredible service to their patients. In 2012 alone, more than 200,000 patients across America provided reviews and feedback regarding their personal treatment and experiences with doctors. The Patients' Choice award is given to doctors who receive rave reviews for their work and dedication in their medical field.
“At my practice, LA Integrative Gastroenterology and Nutrition, I combine the best of western medicine with a whole-body approach to address multiple aspects of mind and body, lifestyle and nutrition, inflammation, infections, immune system, toxic burden, allergies, and hormone balancing,” said Dr. Rahbar.
Dr. Rahbar is one of the few gastroenterologists in Beverly Hills to receive this accomplished award, and perhaps the only holistic gastroenterologist in Los Angeles. Out of 800,000 doctors in the United States, only 5% can call themselves a recipient of a Patients' Choice Award.
