Dr. Rahman offers state-of-the-art care with old-fashioned compassion and courtesy.  She practices with a focus on health and wellness, not medicine. She advocates preventive care, education and uses the latest technology to better women’s lives. Her specialties include care to women in midlife and menopause.

In addition to earning her MD from Yale School of Medicine, Dr. Rahman holds an MBA from the University of Pittsburgh. She began her clinical experience as an OB/GYN with the National Health Service Corps providing care in physician shortage areas. She’s also volunteered in a variety of clinical settings both in the United States and third world countries.

Dr. Rahman is a proponent of the philosophy that overall female well-being includes mental, physical and sexual health.

In late June of 2020 she launched a directory to help eliminate healthcare disparities. It is a directory called TheBlackWomansHealthDirectory...and no it doesn’t exclude black men, it’s just highlighting, shining the light on black women. She invites all black doctors--male and female--to list their profile @ The directory includes the physician’s phone number, website address, which insurances are accepted and their specialty/areas of expertise.
