Patients Helping Patients, Inc. (PHP) is a nonprofit organization founded by Dr. Farshid Sam Rahbar.
Through years of practice, Dr. Rahbar has come across many patients who cannot afford specialized
testing for proper diagnosis and management of their illnesses.
In addition, Dr. Rahbar and other clinicians have noted a lack of acceptance of complex conditions
such as “chronic Lyme disease”. This scenario leads many patients to feel lost in the system.
Despite Dr. Rahbar’s efforts to provide efficient care, he has found that additional funding is
needed to support research, clinical care and education.
PHP was created to provide such funding through the vision that we are all connected
and deserve optimal health, yet sometimes we need a helping hand.
