He is my doctor for life. Mylisia Harper 06/2017

Dr. Jeyarajah was an impeccable physician. He took the time to answer every question, addressed every issue and made us feel comfortable with the decision of surgery. He gave us every choice and we came to the right procedure together. We felt very involved with our care. His office staff is wonderful and they are very easy to work with. My husband and I HIGHLY recommend Dr. J. We drove over an hour to see him and for surgery. It was worth every second.

Dr J. is a great doctor but you rarely get to see him. I can count on one hand how many minutes I have seen him face to face unless I was being sedated for surgery. I usually end up with a medical student. He is wonderful man, but he should spend more time face to face to build trust with his patients. I had a MAJOR surgery and I still do no fully understand what was done to me and how to deal with it going forward. I am unsure if I will continue to see him when this is over....if ever.
Alvarado , TX |
Starting in 2011 he removed a carcinoid tumor of the appendix. After witch the scar would not close. All Dr j would do is send me to wound care and still would not close. After a year of a open wound on my stomach I went to see another doctor and come to find out my body was rejecting a stick the was left inside me. I had that removed and my scar closed right up no thanks to Dr j. Now 2016 a small cancer was found after a octrotide scan 4 months ago. I was told to wait another month a wait

Dr Jeyarajah is one of the smartest, most knowledgeable Physicians I have ever met. His surgical skill is so incredible and it is paired with an awesome bedside manner. The way Dr J. treats people, whether they are patients or staff, or whomever, he treats them with the utmost respect. I just referred a patient to Dr J, and I did so because I learned firsthand about all of these things by having the privilege of working with him for about 10 years.

He saved my life. My surgery was so intensive I don't believe another surgeon could have done it. He also left me fully functional. He is very intelligent & talented!!! He is very compassionate. He is not egotistical, many physicians who don't really have the right stuff are very egotistical. I wish I could rate him with 100 stars!!! He truly deserves that & more. God bless you Dr. Jeyarajah. The world needs solo many more like you!!!! I love him forever. Patricia Nielsen

I am a high risk surgery patient. When my dr called Dr Jeyarajah and told him my case he told him . Send her to me I will take care . He was nothing but nice . He checked every test and. Made sure it was the right thing to do. The day of my surgery he prayed over me before I went in . To me he was God sent .
in Waco Tx |
I have never had a more positive experience with a clinician. Dr Jeyarah is extraordinary. He took a personal approach w us and always makes us feel important and that he is doing everything possible to keep my husband alive. After more than two years w him he is still amazing. He never gives up, is always readily receptive to my questions and inquiries. He will respond to my many emails within minutes all the time. Even when he is on vacation. Can't say enough about him. We love you.
in Midland, Texas |
He is an angel sent from God and there is no other doctor on this earth that could even come close to him!!!! His hands are blessed by God and we truly believe that God uses Dr. Jeyarajah for his purpose and that is to heal the broken, sick and wounded not only physically but spiritually as well. We thank our Lord for sending us to Dallas and to Dr. Jeyarajah!!!!
