Dr. Rai was like Heaven sent and I am so grateful that my grandmother was referred to him. Immediately, we entered the office we were greeted with the most friendly and professional staff. Dr. Rai is Incredible !! He made my grandmother feel comfortable and was very empathetic. I feel like my grandmother is receiving the best care. By far the best doctor ! During the initial visit Dr. Rai took his time with her and was very professional and knowledgeable.

very poor- long wait times- once I was waiting almost an hour in the waiting room and another 15 mins in the exam room- he always had 1 or 2 students with him -more interested in teaching than the patient. I was recommend to see him by my surgeon. All this doctor did was tell me about wearing different shoes and an Rx for a different medication each visit- none of them helped- never returned my calls had a reaction to one of meds- had to speak to the pharmacist at Stop and Shop to get information.The office staff was rude- but very quick to get that co pay
