Follow up long term is not helpful for me. Did invasive testing and prescription one size fits all. In my opinion it seems like he works for someone or in contract with high cost versus patient outcomes. not for sure but follow up for chronic patient like me who want non invasive treatment when possible is slim choices with this gastro doctor. Cost has gone up. I understand the corona virus going around but many people will suffer from other conditions for lack of treatment.( like me). ?? Televisit only goes so far and if you don’t have insurance, You are without any care. Cash price is extremely high.there is a lack of ability to properly communicate ( records,...) despite the technology exists and is very affordable. If current medicine doesnt change then it is all profit. The current pandemic just made things worse with more red tape instead of caution and cleanliness, we as society should have always been practicing.

Raijman placed a stint in stomach during a procedure to clear an obstruction in bile duct and stent failed due to being "malpositioned". Dr. Raijman ignored numerous telephone calls from patient who was in painful distress. His action and subsequent lack of attention caused biliary peritonitis, resulting in surgery. There is concern that the digestive system will never fully recover due to damage as a result of the malpositioned stent and ensuing lack of attention to patient failing to take appropriate action in a reasonable time frame which would have significantly reduced damage and scar tissue to the pancreas, kidney, gall bladder and other organs.

I found Dr. Raijman seven years ago and sorry it was not sooner. He is tops in the Gastroenterology field, and I can say this after having been to four other doctors in this field. Along with being compassionate and patient he explains everything and always asks if you have any questions without rushing you out the door. I have always had phone calls returned in a reasonable time and never encountered anything but politeness from all his staff.

Dr. Raijman is very easy to talk to and will take time to explain your condition and make sure you are comfortable with the treatment plan. I've been seeing him since 2014 and he was the best thing to happen in my gastro life! Previous gastros were not helpful at all, but Dr. Raijman listened and has definitely helped me. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Raijman to family and friends if they ever encountered biliary problems.

I adore Dr. Raijman! After doing a lot of online research, I chose him to consult with about the balloon procedure. I chose him because he wasn't solely a weight loss doctor and is obviously an outstanding surgeon. I was extremely impressed with his qualifications. I attribute all my success with the balloon procedure to his skill as a surgeon. I had no problems whatsoever and would highly recommend him to anyone needing a gastroenterologist for any reason. He is a wonderful doctor!

Dr. Raijman never followup with me for my GI issue and EGD result. When I called for a followup appointment, they gave me a date two month later. His accounting manager and front end staff were also rude when I told them I need to confirm with my insurance company for charging me another $40 copay for my follow up visit (They both said if you don't pay this copay now, we wont' let you in to see Dr.

I was told by 4 to 5 different physician's that Dr. Raijman was the physician I should go to, if at all possible. He treated me with kindness, respect and great care. I am so grateful that he accepted me as his patient and took care of a very frightening condition.
