He has since grown the pediatric department to 13 pediatricians, five Advanced Practice Providers, and he has integrated both behavioral health and dental providers into the pediatric health centers. Peak Vista’s pediatric department has expanded to four locations, including two school-based health centers, under his leadership.


Dr. Rahaman is an integral part of the medical community in the Pikes Peak Region. He has been intimately involved with the growth of Children's Hospital Colorado in the Southern Region. Dr. Rahaman has served on its medical staff, mentored pediatric providers at the hospital and served as a voice of advocacy for the needs of pediatric patients in Southern Colorado as Children's Hospital Colorado expanded services in the area.
