Dr. Raju is always approachable and helpful. Her office was clearly very busy, and seemed to be short a nurse, but everyone was still kind and helpful.

A caring professional: Dr. Raju listens and shows compassion. I visited her for a specific problem and to find a primary care physician for ongoing care. She was outstanding. The nursing staff and front desk personnel were courteous, and I was seen on time. The east Memphis office is clean, comfortable with pleasant décor. I was most impressed, however, with Dr. Raju herself.

Dr. Raju always explains your condition in a way that makes sense to someone without a medical degree. I especially love that she does this without patronizing the patient. She is very kind and helpful.

The entire office visit was unpleasant. The whole time I was there I was being rushed and the doctor didn't seem to care. She was also rude to the lady at the counter. I honestly feel like she had somewhere better to be.

I don't understand the purpose of an appointment. People who technically did arrive before me but definitely did not have an appointment were seen before me. I was not seen until 55 minutes after my appointment time. I don't see why I scheduled an appointment if it was not even close to honored. However, Dr. Raju is one of the least condescending doctors I have ever seen. She took time to listen to me, and I really appreciated her explanations of my conditions. Her nurse was the same way. For that reason alone, I will return to the office. Were she not so great, the wait time would have turned me off.

I loved the nurses and Dr. Raju. I would definitely recommend them to anyone. I will be going back there for my annual exam/papsmear every year. Everyone was so sweet and made me feel so comfortable during an uncomfortable situation!

I really had to advocate for what i wanted. she wanted a wait and see approach. i like a test and treat approach. If I was going to wait and see if I got better I would have never made an appointment.
