  1. I really enjoyed this video, Dr. Rahimi was just excellent in providing very good answers in a very simple easy to understand words, unlike most doctors, they like to use difficult medical terms that is very long and hard for people to even pronounce, and off course don’t know what they mean. Thank you .

  2. Dr. Rahimi was very easy to understand even though she has an accent. I am concerned that I will interpret for a doctor that I cannot understand their English. I guess that communication with the provider is the important way to go. If doctor gets frustrated with me, I can only do the best that I can.
