Dr. Rabin’s research has been presented at many scientific meetings and he has published numerous articles expanding the field of ophthalmology.

“My husband went in for his yearly eye exam and two weeks later, Dr. Rabin called him, stating that he wasn’t satisfied with one of his test results, so he sent him for an MRI. If he didn’t do this, we would have never found out that my husband had a tumor on the lining of his brain. Even the Neurologist told us we had a great eye doctor! Thank Dr. Rabin for taking that extra step; so thankful!”

“He was wonderful. His staff was wonderful. He did cataract surgery on my right eye. My eye is wonderful. I can see in high def 20/15. I would totally recommend this office. I am a dentist so I know how offices should run and practitioners should practice and he is top notch.”

“Doctor Rabin is a great Eye Doctor and Surgeon.  My father had emergency eye surgery in his right eye and cataract surgery in his right eye and Doctor Rabin did a fantastic job.  My father had no issues with his eye for both surgeries because of Doctor Rabin.  I highly recommend Doctor Rabin to anyone who is looking for a great Eye Doctor and Surgeon.”

“Dr. Rabin treated my wife for cataracts and gave her back her sight, it doesn’t get any better than that. He was outstanding in taking time to explain everything thoroughly and treat her as a person as well as a patient, one of the few times we actually looked forward on going to the doctor. We recommend Dr. Rabin and would make the drive from Sacramento to his new office for any needs rather than try to find a provider closer to us.”

“Dr Richard Rabin removed my cataracts  earlier thIs year and my vision is now 20/20.  He also recognised that I have glaucoma and has successfully reduced the pressure in my eyes.  I was very nervous about eye surgery but Dr Rabin put me completely at ease.  He is very knowledgeable and keeps up to date with the latest techniques and developments.  I recommend him unreservedly.”
