Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Raju was very nice and concern for my health.
It has never made sense that as an insomniac, to me that you can either take a pill everyday if its labeled as an antidepressant and its ok, but taking something to help you sleep (as needed) is a no-no if its an instantly working pill. Im no doctor but it seems like having to take something every day is closer to "addiction" than taking something as needed. Oh well...what do i know, im just a liberal woman... Doc was very friendly and although im ever the optimist, i want to believe she inderstoood and cared. I guess we shall see.
My first time coming here and she was great! Staff was very friendly, and I felt they truly listened to everything I was saying.
She was very nice and made sure I understood everything she was doing. The office was very clean, organized, and efficient.
If was fast. The staff is really nice.
She was amazing... the only problem that I had was the receptionist ladies. I saw that once you go to the back you couldn't use your phone... that wasn't the issue my issue was I was on the phone waiting for my name to be called. All of a sudden a woman that was behind the glass stated are you new ... and are you ready to be seen because you can't go to the back on the phone. She was very nice nasty and I didn't like that at all
Dr Raju and her assistant Latrina are wonderful! Front desk staff was kind and courteous. Highly recommend.

Informative and brief
the ladies at front desk checkin, and nurse Raven were fantastic, too. a very pleasant overall experience- not always the case when you dont feel well!
Dr. Raju is wonderful. She is polite and professional.
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.
NICE PLACE TO GO
Greeted promptly at reception. Pleasant and efficient staff. Dr Raju's nurse was efficient, pleasant, and reassuring. Patiently took all health and personal information quickly and accurately. Dr Raju was prompt, welcoming and friendly. Listened to my symptoms and completed a thorough examination and prescribed treatment in understandable terms. Highly recommend this office, staff, and Dr Raju to anyone in need of healthcare services.

I love Dr.Raju very professional and warm hearted.
She was great. No complaints here.
It was great. Dr. Raju was through and the wait times was quite fast.
Very professional and friendly staff!!!
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.
One of the best HC Physisian I have been to
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.
This was my 1st appointment. I was very pleased with everything. Professional, efficient, personable & comfortable.. My teeth are sparkling.She was very great! Took time to talk to me and suggest solutions to my problems. Wonderful bedside manner!
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.
Dr. Raju is always friendly and helpful. She explains what she does and why, which is great for anyone without a medical degree!
I really enjoyed the office staff and Doctor Raju. I was looking for a new Doctor and think I have found one. Hope to have a long relationship with this Doctor.
Dr. Raju and her team are thorough, caring, and invested in my health! I recommend to anyone to choose her as your primary care physician.
As always, Dr. Raju was kind and friendly. The nurses and receptionist in the office are exactly the same. Everyone is there to help the patients, as is made clear by their constant smiles.
Better off shooting myself..
She was very great! Took time to talk to me and suggest solutions to my problems. Wonderful bedside manner!
Office visit was positive and services were rendered.
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!
Very good first visit and friendly staff
I had no problems.
Everything was good, only waited time over one hour.
I called the office before my appointment and was put on hold for 12 minutes before I hung up. I sat in the waiting room for over an hour.
Was very nice
She was great a doctor. It was my first time meeting with her. She answered all my questions and concerns.
A great appointment! Everyone was very professional and understanding. I will definitely be going there for everything!
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.
Great bedside manner. Very pleasant personality. She took the time to explain and ask questions. She didn't rush through like most Dr's. Her office staff is extremely nice. I was looking for a new Doc and found it.
I immediately felt very comfortable. I made the right choice!
It was great. Will surely recommend her to my friends and colleagues.
She care about your health
Feel like she cares wouldn't go no where else awesome
She was nice and she explained things throughly and clearly and she explained the type of medicine that she was prescribing to me.

My appointment with Dr. Raju was a refreshing change of pace from doctors I've seen previously. She took her time and really listened to me. She was professional, courteous, and kind. I've sent several new patients her way!
She is fabulous! She listened intently to my medical issues and came up with a regimen that will quickly put me on the mend.
Very polite an fast!!
