Dr. Rajan answered all questions that I had and explained everything in detail. His physician’s assistant was also very thorough. His office is very well organized and I was given a folder of paperwork for my scheduled surgery which includedall the information I need for before and after surgery.

Went to Dr. Rajan for a second opinion on my shoulder that was injured in a car accident after receiving sub par care from another orthopedic surgeon. After one examination he knew exactly what was wrong with me and what todo to fix it. I have now had a second surgery and am hoping this is what does the trick. Dr. Rajan explained my procedure and provided me with exercises to facilitate my recovery. He is personable and asked me several times if I had any questions. Had to wait almost an hour to be seen but take it from someone whose previous doctor was uninformative and gave no suggestions on how to improve my situation it was definitely worth the wait. I would unequivocally recommend Dr. Rajan.

All the staff were friendly and helpful. I went in with a knee injury, after physical exam and x-ray at dr. Rajan's, got a detailed explanation from him on the suspected injury with knee model and all including why he performedeach physical exam / why it led him to suspect ACL injury. The receptionists helped me schedule MRI imaging and dr. Rajan put in knee brace they have for patients at the office so they don't have to go out and get one on an already bad leg. He's a super nice dude.
