Dr Suraj Achar has been my Family Medicine and Sports Medicine physician for more than 10 years...and has helped, cured and advised me more than I could ever expect.

He is an invaluable asset to UCSD, his patients, his peers, the medical community and future physicians learning from him. Dr Achar is "As good as it gets!" And Thank you, Dr Achar!
