After seeing 2 other doctors that were unable to properly diagnose my son in 6 months, Dr. Rai was able to provide a diagnosis after a quick battery of tests in 3 weeks.

My sister and I both had our initial consultation with Dr. Rai and he seemed attentive and pleasant. We both scheduled an upper endoscopy and colonoscopy. I was diagnosed with an IBD and we are unsure of my sister’s diagnosis. I decided to get a second opinion, and this backfired on me. Fast forward to few weeks later, my sister had another follow-up appointment with him and I went with her. During the appointment, he made smart comments to both of us. She asked for his recommendation, he told her to ask me for my recommendation or maybe get a second opinion (like I did). He told us both that he is tired of dealing with us.

Dr. Rai explained how my procedures went very thoroughly and showed me pictures of my procedures after I came out of the anesthesia. I was disappointed to learn that I was not meeting with him to learn my diagnosis, but rather with his physican's assistant, Monica. As it turned out, Monica is extremely knowledgeable and caring. She was very thorough and took time to answer all of my questions. I will definitely go back, as Dr. Rai and his team put me at ease and inspire confidence in their a

He was good during the first consultation but it went downhill from there. Had a colonoscopy and endoscopy by him and the amount charged to my insurance was close to $11,000; over $5000 was for anesthesia but there was only an anesthesia technician during the procedure and later I found that practice is owned by him! I was diagnosed with PreCrohn's disease but later when I showed the pictures to another GI, they did not agree with the diagnosis. The front staff is also inefficient/unhelpful.

I had a colonoscopy and endoscopy a week ago and had a wonderful experience with Dr. Rai and his staff. I read the negative reviews and, fortunately, did NOT come close to anything of the like. I hope this continues. I believe in Dr. Rai's expertise, as well as his staff's. He discovered multiple issues I had been dealing with for 10+ years and we are in the process of fixing them. He even made mention that we could control my issues through diet. I was pleased his first go to was not meds

Dr Rai performed an upper endoscopy and a colonoscopy. I had no complications and my biopsy was negative. Total time spent with Dr. Rai in the initial consultation, discussion prior to the procedures, discussion after the procedures, and in the follow-up visit was between 5-10 minutes total (a nurse practitioner performed the initial consultation and follow-up visit). I was unable to obtain a cost estimate prior to the procedures. My insurance company was billed >$11,000 for the two procedures.

I was a patient with Dr. Rai for over 8 years dealing with PBC. Dr. Rai is a good doctor but I noticed a decline in staffing quality and professionalism as the years progressed. Their feedback and accuracy became untrustworthy. I also was very disappointed with how my diagnostics were handled after doing a fibro scan of my liver. They wanted me to go through a path that, as I found out, was totally unnecessary. I would recommend him for some specialties of the liver but not PBC.

Dr. Rai and his physician assistant Jen never followed up. They do not return phone calls. I have been waiting four months to get the result of important lab tests. I have never had such a negative experience with any doctor, bordering on malpractice. Yesterday I called my insurance company (who paid them) -the insurance company called the practice. Only after getting a call from the insurance company did the physician assistant return my call. She said she'd send me the results. Nothing yet.

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.
