    He was on time, he's very personable, he listens very carefully, quick study, he understood me immediately ? He communicates very well, I felt we had a quick rapport with 1 another, this is only the 2nd time I've seen him, and the medication that was recommended for me has already started to work to lift my mood. I started medication 5 days before I saw him, so the fact that he got it right is just wonderful. Yeah, very, very good visit, yeah.

    Dr. Raj has always been an excellent physician. I respect his knowledge and his professionalism, and his patient care. His demeanor is so great with his patients, he always explains things very clearly, in language that I can understand, and I feel very fortunate to be able to see him as my primary care physician because I know he's very much in demand. Hello? I'm finished speaking.

    Excellent experience all around... Dr Raj is a great listener, answers all my questions and concerns in a complete easy to understand manner. I have great confidence in his knowledge and experience. He is kind, caring and respectful - never makes me feel 'dumb' for asking any question -I feel free to ask or express anything to him..
