    Dr Raj passionately cared for my case accelerating the medical examination process for me to get the treatment without any delay. In my opinion, this process was life saving. His diagnosis was done in a clear but thoughtful way for me and my family to take in. I am really grateful for his care.

    Dr Raj was great - I saw him in Jan 2021 for a biliary adenoma. He was great at explaining the diagnosis to me and helped put me at ease. He has a very good demeanour - kind and thorough. He promptly referred me to an excellent surgeon. I felt like I got very good care. The London Liver Centre overall has been excellent - and their admin team is great and very responsive. Would recommend.

    I have known Dr Raj as my trainee and then appointed him as a consultant colleague in my NHS hospital. It is fair to say that he was one of the very best trainees we have had the pleasure to train. He has an enquiring mind, is highly empathetic, an excellent diagnostician, and he combines this with excellent procedural and technical skills in colonoscopy and endoscopy. We were very sad to lose him to take up a position in King's College Hospital when one came up to suit his subspecialist interest. Highly recommended!
