Llewellyn N. Packia Raj, MD

Physiatrist
Languages: English
Accepting New Patients
Professional Statement
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.

I cannot say enough to describe Dr. Packia Raj's concern for this patient. He carefully explained each phase of his findings on the ultrasound as he went along with the procedure, and he always showed concern for my discomfort at the time when it was necessary to cause it in the course of the ultrasound.

[...] this the specialists at Swedish are very good it just sucks as a disabled person that the location, Redmond by my house is so minimal on what they can do there and I cannot get to Issaquah or Seattle because I have no one to take me to my appointments.

They don't get any better than Dr. P-R. I wish all the other physicians I dealt with were as thorough, knowledgeable and caring.

Dr. Packia Raj did not glaze over any symptoms and completed a thorough exam. He ordered x-rays to find additional answers he could not get from the physical exam.
