My Dad has been a patient of Dr. Raja for two separate Brain Bleeds from high blood pressure, seven years apart. As soon as they called him about the second bleed and he knew my dad was his former patient he rushed right over to take care of him. He helped our family through by encouraging us to not lose hope when we were so scared. He has the BEST bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met. My dad is doing so much better and I know that God used Dr Raja to give him the treatment he needed.
