Odenton, MD |
He does not care about his patients. He only cares about his profits. 0 bedside manner.
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.

Professional staff. They follow up with results. Appointments are always on time. Never a delay.

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.
