How likely are you to recommend Dr. Raju?

(Select your rating)
I was referred to Dr Raju by my PCP. I was nervous about going to a psychiatrist. I was beyond thrilled with my experience then and have been seeing him quarterly since 2012. He projects an aura of calmness and wisdom. He asks amazing questions and follows with questions that show he was truly listening. I highly recommend Dr Raju.
