Patient Testimonials:


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."
