I have been treated by dr. Raj for the past few years. I found him quite capable and extremely caring about my condition. I highly recommend him. Dr. Gerald Lynch

I saw Dr. Raj for evaluation of my newly diagnosed emphysema/COPD. I found him capable and personable, while somewhat reserved. On the basis of my pulmonary function tests, he prescribed several inhalers. Unfortunately my condition has worsened, and I have unanswered questions for a follow-up visit. It's always good to prepare a list of questions for your doctor. I neglected to do this the first time.. Someone else gave Dr. Raj only one star, which shocked me. That seems wholly unwarranted.
