What People Say About Dr. Rupesh Raina, MD

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.

His office sent me a letter saying they were sorry I died! Other than that, he cancelled my appointments every other time, and never explained anything to me. This place is a nightmare!

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.
