I came to see Dr. Raghu for a 2nd opinion. I was extremely impressed with his thoroughness in collecting and interpreting my history. His straightforward, compassionate and great concern for me was greatly appreciated. He follows through on what he says he will do and provides all options available for best decision making. He can speak of complex issues in layman's terms. Needless to say, Dr. Raghu is my new pulmonologist.
