I wish all Doctors were like him
I was admitted with sepsis. Dr Raghavan was so helpful in explaining my options, as I had a perforated cecum right above where the appendix attaches. The Dr was always very kind and caring. He was always straight forward and to the point. He was personable in as he always remembered my families names as well as mine which speaks volumes about his character. He kept us all well informed about the procedure before and after surgery. I would definitely recommend Dr. Raghavan to anyone needing a surgeon.

This is the worst doctor I’ve ever seen I went for a Colonoscopy on August 2021 and he said I was fine but I have Hemorrhoid's and need a surgery. after the remove of hemorrhoid's I was in a lot of pain I went to see him 3 times and all he said was take pain pills after 3 months of suffering I decide to take a different opinion with another doctor as soon the doctor see me he said you have a very bad infection and he give me a very strong antibiotics for 2 weeks and I went back to see my new doctor and when he check me he said you have a fistula than is a big infection and the only way to fix it is with a surgery I have two surgery's to close the fistula and after 7 months I still on recovery I'm really don't recommend doctor Karthik Raghavan look for some other doctor he is the worst

I walked into John C Lincoln with nausea and was admitted for emergency appendicitis that same night. Dr. Raghavan performed the surgery at 10pm after making sure I understood what I was getting into. The appendix burst during surgery, but the doctor was able to keep the procedure as least invasive as possible. Dr. Raghavan then checked on me every day while I was forced into a relatively extended hospital stay due to the unexpected complications. His straight forward approach is something I appreciated... but that isn't to say he has lost the human aspect of his profession. I've no doubt Dr. Raghavan saved my life that night as I was a ticking timebomb.

He took such good care of my mom. It was a harrowing experience and we were not always as nice as we should have been. He and his staff let us rant when needed, hugged us when needed, and mostly explained EVERYTHING as many times as we needed.

I was referred to Dr. Raghavan by my Oncologist to perform and Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. His office and staff were very friendly and welcoming. I waited less than 15 minutes before being seen for a consultation. Dr. Raghavan came in and from my first impression he is very cool calm and collected man. He went over the details of my problems and explained how he would treat them and even was kind enough to take a look at my prostate as I asked him about a possible problem with my prostate. He gave me easy but disciplined instructions to follow before the surgery/procedure and he handled everything so smooth and painless. I am very grateful for his services and expertise. I'm a healthier man because of him. It was really easy to make Dr.Raghavan as my choice. I highly recommend you consult with him when searching for an excellent GI doctor. 2 thumbs up. Thank you. Dr. Raghavan and your office and hospital staff!

Dr Raghavan operated on my hernia and the surgery, prep, and follow-up was excellent. The surgery was 100% successful and Dr Raghavan made sure to proactively address any potential pain or discomfort issues to minimize these.

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.
