Dr. Raghavan operated on my umbilical hernia. The experience all the way from the first appointment to post-operative care and recovery was absolutely amazing. At my first appointment, he very patiently educated me on the hernia and the procedure. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions patiently. Right after the procedure, he shared with my husband the images of the procedure and details about the post-operative care. Dr. Raghavan is very personable, kind, and competent. I highly recommend him and his practice for hernia care.

This man never bothered to send me written instructions for how to prep for a colonoscopy. The instructions did not arrive until the day before the procedure. Some instructions were to be observed at least 5 days before the procedure date. And I had to send a fax to his office because I had been forgotten. These people are careless. Don't go here. This experience was outrageous and unforgivable. Now you know.
