Karishma K. - "Dr. Raghavan operated on my umbilical hernia. The experience all the way from the first appointment to post operative care and recovery was absolutely amazing. At my first appointment he very patiently educated me on the hernia and the procedure. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions patiently. Right after the procedure he shared with my husband the images of the procedure and details about the post operative care.
Dr. Raghavan is very personable, kind, and competent. I highly recommend him and his practice for hernia care."

Willie F. - "Great place, staff is very helpful and friendly. Check in was very quick and easy. The place is very clean and spacious. Dr. Raghavan is a superstar you can tell he has a excellent experience."

Ryan C. - "I recently had a hemorrhoidectomy from Dr. Raghavan. He was very helpful in helping me to understand what to expect with the surgery. Post surgery recovery has been as described, although I did have a couple of concerns. I saw Dr. Ragavhan on a Monday, and I was in for surgery that Friday. Once I arrived at the hospital I was taken back immediately, everyone was very kind and made sure I was comfortable. Incredible experience, for a dreaded procedure. I received same day appointments twice to see the doctor to address my post surgery concerns. Overall Dr. Raghavan has been excellent. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or his staff."

"Dr Raghavan operated on my hernia and the surgery, prep, and follow-up was excellent. The surgery was 100% successful and Dr Raghavan made sure to proactively address any potential pain or discomfort issues to minimize these."

"He took such good care of my mom. It was a harrowing experience and we were not always as nice as we should have been. He and his staff let us rant when needed, hugged us when needed, and mostly explained EVERYTHING as many times as we needed. "

"Yes, Dr. Was awesome, kind and took time with me!!"

"Saw Dr. Raghavan to have my gall bladder removed. He explained the procedure and answered my questions. Had my 2 week follow up and he explained what he had found. Excellent Dr. Wish more would take the time with their patients. "

"I was referred to Dr. Raghavan by my Oncologist to perform and Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. His office and staff were very friendly and welcoming. I waited less than 15 minutes before being seen for a consultation. Dr. Raghavan came in and from my first impression he is very cool calm and collected man. He went over the details of my problems and explained how he would treat them and even was kind enough to take a look at my prostate as I asked him about a possible problem with my prostate. He gave me easy but disciplined instructions to follow before the surgery/procedure and he handled everything so smooth and painless. I am very grateful for his services and expertise. I'm a healthier man because of him. It was really easy to make Dr.Raghavan as my choice. I highly recommend you consult with him when searching for an excellent GI doctor. 2 thumbs up. Thank you. Dr. Raghavan and your office and hospital staff!"

"I walked into John C Lincoln with nausea and was admitted for emergency appendicitis that same night. Dr. Raghavan performed the surgery at 10pm after making sure I understood what I was getting into. The appendix burst during surgery, but the doctor was able to keep the procedure as least invasive as possible. Dr. Raghavan then checked on me every day while I was forced into a relatively extended hospital stay due to the unexpected complications. His straight forward approach is something I appreciated... but that isn't to say he has lost the human aspect of his profession. I've no doubt Dr. Raghavan saved my life that night as I was a ticking timebomb."
