Outstanding doctor. Her straightforward , no nonsense approach allows patients to see choices clearly. She views the patient in their entirety and weighs pros and cons of each alternative. She is not afraid to give her opinion, which I really appreciated and offers practical solutions before...more

Several years ago I had to have an inguinal hernia surgery which is when Dr. Raj told me I had a naval problem and I should take care lifting. At a robust 70 yrs i did not follow her advise and so last month she repaired my naval hernia. Well done in all respects. Fine person too!
