Appointment was at 10am. It is 11:20 and the doctor is still not available. Where is the concern for patient time? I walked out. Not worth my time waiting even after taking an appointment a month before.

I have never met an internal medicine doctor that truly cares about the person as a whole. He doesn't think about what is wrong with you , he helps you see and find all the things that are right with you. He is more then a doctor, I consider Dr. Raj and his wife my family. He has been my doctor for over 6 years now, and l would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a compassionate, thorough, intelligent doctor.

I'm writing this review after giving Dr. Raj a fair chance to demonstrate how well he is as a physician in all aspects. He is a good doctor, but sometimes not good enough when dealing with a complex condition, especially when it doesn't require a specialist evaluation. This doesn't matter if you're looking for common health problems or just need a routine physical, but I would recommend going elsewhere. He routinely overbooks and has nearly a 1-1.5 hour long wait time...that was the last straw

Staff are very deceitful with information abot payment for medical check-up & vaccinations needed for immigration purposes.Maximum total cost was supposedly $450 & cost will be reduced depending if found positive during the blood work & vaccination will no longer be needed.While waiting for the results, I was told that I only need to pay $300 & the $150 will be paid only if MMR is needed per blood result.They didn't administer MMR but was still forced to pay $150!It now became doctor's payment!
