Verified Patient Reviews
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 to do 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.
Dr. Rajan is an outstanding doctor with an efficient staff. He is not only an expert in his field of Orthopedics he is also patient, friendly and explains every aspect of treatment in a way that is completely understood. In my experience as well as my husband's we are extremely satisfied with our time with Dr Rajan before and after our shoulder surgeries. He is a credit to the medical profession. Thank you

I appreciated Dr. Rajan's inquisitiveness and willingness to listen to my story. He is very knowledgeable, thorough, and friendly. His PA, Mark, is also very friendly and knowledgeable.
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 performed each 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.
