    Explanation (5/5)
    Dr Raja was extremely friendly and thoughtful, he listened and did not rush through any questions i asked, and all explanations were detailed so that i could understand and query if needed, consistent across all four consultations, and offered any help i may need in the future. Made me feel at ease despite my high anxiety levels and did not brush off my feelings as purely anxiety related which is a great quality in a doctor.

    Explanation (5/5)
    I was very happy that I consulted with Dr Raja. He was very thourough in revewing the status of my bicuspic valve via MRI and ultrasound.

He does a fantastic job of explaining complex concepts at just the right level. Dr Raja also answers questions in the same manner. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Raja; he is an excellent cardiologist.
