Biography & Education

Biography
I believe in a multi-disciplinary approach to health and illness. Treatment of a person should involve education, traditional and complementary medical approaches and an emphasis on return to activity and prevention of recurrent injury. I believe in empowering people to take charge of their own well-being by helping them be aware of how health involves not just an understanding of their medical diagnoses, but an understanding of how their conditions can influence and are influenced by their mental health and interpersonal relationships.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Doctor went above and beyond the call by taking the time to explain to my teenage son the nature and findings of the ultrasound he was conducting. Dr Pakia Raj is not only a gifted physician, by a great teacher as well.
