What People Say About Dr. Padmanabhan Raghu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was diagnosed with a very rare condition and had a ton of questions and concerns and understandably, was visibly nervous and upset both times I saw Dr. Raghu. I didn't feel like he spent the time to listen to my concerns nor did I think he was truly an expert. While he gave me the correct medications that did help, the appointments were confusing and left me more worried each time. I was also concerned because he mentioned he wasn't that great at math.

I was referred to a Rheumatologist from my PCP, and I let the scheduler pick which doctor for me to see. I have never been happier with a doctor than I am with Dr. Raghu. He actually sat in front of me and listened to me. It was such a nice change from what I am used to. I feel he genuinely cares about my well being. We are working together to improve my quality of life, and I am grateful that I have met him.

Dr. Raghu was great doctor. He explained things very well and discussed all the treatment options very well. Would recommend this doctor to anyone who wants personal care. His staff was great. He gave knee injections had no pain at all from it.
