Patient Stories


Lori Haye

Pain Management

Lori is more active and has a better quality of life since receiving pain management care at Summa Health.


Lori: Around 20 years ago, I had an accident that caused me to be in a lot of pain. It was all over, but mostly my knees and my back. My primary care physician at Summa referred me to Pain Management with Dr. Rahman.

The first thing that Dr. Rahman did was wean me off all the medication I was taking. She did try a lot of things and the pain pump was the ultimate result, and it continuously delivers medication throughout the day.

It has made things easier for me. I'm a lot more active, and so life has gotten a lot better. If I could say anything to Dr. Rahman, it would probably be, "God bless you. Thank you." You made me cry. Probably would be, "Thank you for changing my life." As long as I'm alive, I want her to be my doctor.


Stephen Rininger

Pain Management Patient

After years of suffering, every day is now a good day thanks to Summa


Stephen: I was born with severe scoliosis and had pain throughout my entire life. At times, the pain was so crippling I could hardly breathe. After years of suffering, I finally found the medical care I needed from Summa.

I found the best family doctor I could ever have hoped to find in Dr. Donald Albainy. And when it comes to pain management, I found the perfect doctor in Dr. Aisha Rahman. She basically saved my life. First of all, she got me off of all of these heavy narcotics and did surgery to put a pain pump and a catheter in my spine.

And now I'm clearheaded instead of being in a drug-induced fog. And Dr. Rahman and Dr. Albainy together have given me my life back and every day's a good day because of what they've done for me.
