My experience with Dr. Rupesh Raina has always been really wonderful. His friendly demeanor made me feel extremely comfortable while sharing my medical issues. He makes a genuine effort to inquire about the well being of my family every single time. Despite his busy schedule, he gives an undivided attention and answers all my questions convincingly. His great explanation of my illness was very helpful. It is always very pleasant and reassuring to meet him. It would be my pleasure to recommend you doctor to my family and friends, for them to have an opportunity of witnessing your care and expertise. Thank you for being so caring and welcoming.

I’ve been very pleased with Dr. Raina and all of the staff in this office. Dr. Raina has always been very helpful and lets me ask all my questions and also educates on kidney issues. I felt like he spent the time with me and was not in a hurry to get to his next patients. I will definitely go back for my follow up appointment in a few months.

Dr Raina give their patients the time they need and deserve. Dr Raina answer questions using language that is clear, without using too much medical terminology. Dr Raina is not only honest, but also offer hope, even when a situation is difficult. Dr Raina help their patients feel empowered to improve their own health. Especially young adult. He explains that there are small things he can really make a patient feel valued. Things like asking questions about our job or family show that how he truly interested in them as a person. He is amazing.

Dr. Raina has been my nephrologist for over nine years. He saw me through the difficult pediatric to adult transition and I have never had a bad visit or call with him. Of the dozens of doctors I have been to, he is by far the best and my personal favorite. He routinely goes out of his way to accommodate me and my family. He is not only a great doctor, but a great person also. I would recommend seeing him to anyone with kidney disease, and meeting him to anyone without it.

Dr. Raina's is one of the most amazing doctors I have ever had. Gave me the best care possible and always explain my condition to me in a manner that. I can understand. He took the time to get to know me and would always reference things from previous visits. His bedside manner was superb and made sure to balance both serious and jovial manners to make me feel at ease. All in all there is no one us I would recommend other than Dr. Raina

I was a patient of Dr. Raina's for years and can only describe him as amazing. Simply put, he is an amazing physician. Dr. Raina gave the highest quality of care to me and truly took the time to get to know me and my situation. He worked with me to develop a plan of attack and saw to it that I had the tools needed to achieve a healthy life. Dr. Raina would explain everything that we were doing and would answer any and all questions I had at a level I could understand. He went above and beyond his mission as a doctor. My family and I are truly blessed to have Dr. Raina in our lives.

Raina's capabilities as a doctor aren't the question, but his ethics are. As a former patient, he regular would want to make me believe that he had access to the kidney transplant list and could tell me where I was at on the list, but I knew that even the transplant center didn't have access to that information. So I confirmed it with the head of the transplant center. How he responded to me was shocking when he asked, "Who is Dr. Raina?" Enough said. Frequently misrepresents the truth.

I met him a little over a year ago. I was in the hospital and I didn't have a kidney Dr. My husband went into the hallway and talked with him, Dr Raina came in and told me straight out what he expected from me and asked me what I expected from him. He was straight forward and to the point. He got my health back on track and has helped me deal with my ESRD. I'm forever grateful for him and his staff. He's a great Dr and I would recommend him if you have kidney failure.
