Dr. Rai is very knowledgeable and found a problem that 6 previous sleep studies didn’t manage to get diagnosed. He is friendly and has a great sense of humor. Most of all, he pays attention to details and listens to me about what is going on. He has a great staff who are very helpful & friendly, they go out of their way to make sure I’m taken care of. Don’t change a thing!

Dr Rai is the best doctor I have ever met. I originally came to him to rule out a misdiagnosis, turns out that I had a rare autoimmune disorder, which he picked up on right away. He takes the time to really listen to any concerns me or my wife has. I never feel rushed out, he has a great bedside manner and sense of humor, not only with me but my family, including our 5 year old daughter (who now wants to be a neurologist just like Dr. Rai) I couldn't ask for a better neurologist anywhere.

Dr Rai , has been treating me for narcolepsy and cataplexy and is the only doctor who took the time to figure out what was wrong with me . Dr Rai is understanding and takes the time to listen to you and is very straight forward. I also trust him unlike some other doctors I have seen in the past . I drive a great distances just to see him.
