15 years ago Doctor Raissi saved my life by figuring out what was wrong with me when everyone else at Cedars Sinai Hospital couldn't, he then performed a very complicated surgery on me that I believe in anyone else's hands I would have died!

Dr. Raissi repaired my aortic aneurysm and replaced a valve. Never met a Doctor who was so helpful and made follow up so easy. He gave me his personnel cell number to call 24/7 if I needed anything. The best choice I've ever made. Thank you Dr. Raissi. Zoltan

Dr Raissi is a highly skilled surgeon in every aspect from the first office visit, the surgery and aftercare. He spent as much time as I needed with my concerns about the surgery and has an incredible bedside manner. He is very available and responsive throughout the process and months after he still is answering questions I have. His care for me felt like I was a member of his family. When you meet him you immediately know you are with a man that is gifted and confident yet very humble. Amen
