Born and raised in the suburbs surrounding Washington, DC and currently residing in Fredericksburg, VA with his wife and children – Dr. Rahmat has always called the DMV area home. From a young age he showed a passion toward medicine and patient care. Whether through volunteering at local community care clinics or spending time assisting patients at local hospitals – Dr. Rahmat knew his life’s mission. He attended a combined 6 year BS/MD program at Howard University in Washington, DC and completed it with Suma Cum Laude status (4.0 overall GPA). His Internal Medicine training was completed at the distinguished Georgetown University Hospital, where he received an award for “Resident of the Year.” He completed his Fellowship training at the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension at Georgetown University Hospital, where he was honored as Chief Fellow and also was awarded for overall “Fellow of the Year” at the hospital.
After training was complete, he stayed on as full time faculty at Georgetown University Hospital – serving as an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Nephrology and Hypertension. He is a dedicated teacher and physician, and encourages a strong interpersonal environment between coworkers and patients alike. His research interests include non-invasive monitoring to better understand and control hypertension. He also worked extensively and in collaboration with the National Institute of Health and the DC Veteran’s Affairs Hospital to help detect and treat kidney damage in Veteran’s more efficiently.
Outside of medicine – his passions include sports (basketball and football), reading, and most importantly family time. He has been a volunteer at several local free health clinics and has participated in providing patient care to underserved communities for years. He enjoys volunteering and seeing patients at the DC Veteran’s Affairs Hospital whenever he can – he finds it a priority taking care of those veterans that have bravely served us all.
During his time at Georgetown University Hospital – Dr. Rahmat met Dr. Ethan Ko. They share a common interest in patient care and have similar ideals on how to manage and run a practice the right way. They feel honored to come together and serve the greater Fredericksburg area. The goal is simple – to provide the best possible care for their patients and their community.
