These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating.

Dr. Raj is very easy to talk with, and I felt really at ease with him. He offered and explained health care suggestions that I did not know were an option. I am very happy with my 1st visit with him.

In the past 2 years I have switched Doctors twice. I did this because of poor care by these Doctors. I am seeing my third Doctor now and I like what has transpired. The two other Doctors I have seen at your Bethany branch were not too helpful. They were short in patience, didnt seem to know much and didnt listen well. The Doctor I have now is wonderful!

Dr. Raj had an opening to see me as my primary provider Dr. [...] did not. I was seen the same day I called. He makes an excellent addition to Providence Bethany. I'd see him again if need be.

my normal general Dr. was busy and, since i have shingles, Dr. Raj was kind enough to see me rather than having me wait several days. He was excellent.

I got the feeling he thought I was drug seeking. I don't stay on narcotics if I don't need them. If he had questioned me further he might out why I require more narcotic than the normal person. He could have taken another x-ray but he didn't order one. If he had he would have found out I had a fracture in my [...]

This was my first time meeting Dr. Raj. My experience with him was outstanding. He provided me excellent care, knowledge as to my reason for my visit, and over all a genuine nice guy. You can tell he has a great heart and concern for his patients. I walked away feeling I was listened to, helped, and given the knowledge to make the best option choice for what I was there for. Also, he contacted me via: My Chart the very next day to see how I was doing. Made me feel cared about and not just a "number patient". Thank you Dr. Raj!!! :D
