I saw this Dr 6 times. Wasted months seeing him. Every visit this man blatantly dismissed anyone’s input or opinion, Including previously seen doctors and residents. Constantly wasn’t on same page. Offered to remove a completely different thing instead. Finally Requested a different Dr. who on 1st visit listened to input, read prior notes and was able to find and see the the cause. I don’t care about bedside manner as long as results are delivered, but Dr Raju severely lacked in both.
What went well
  • Appointment scheduling
  • Staff friendliness
  • Appointment wasn't rushed
  • Explained conditions well
What could be improved
  • Didn't listen or answer questions
  • Didn't trust the provider's decisions

I have to say I am so lucky that Dr. Raju was my surgeon. I have recently seen others who had their thyroid removed around the same time I had mine removed and you can barely see A scar if I point it out. They weren’t so lucky. So thank For the awesome Job.
