    Dr. Rai is one of the best doctors that I have ever met and the best gastroenterologist I have ever known. He has excellent bedside manners. He is a very patient man and runs an excellent practice. Dr. Rai has a very calm spirit about him and listens to his patients concerns. If you are in the Howard county, Maryland, Baltimore, Washington, D.C area and in need of a gastroenterologist doctor, be sure to visit Dr. Rai. He and his wonderful staff will be sure to welcome you.
