    My whole experience whilst under consultation of Dr Ravi Rajakariar was nothing short of excellent. From the great service and flexibility offered when booking of the appointments through his Practice Manager/Secretary to the genuine care and consideration shown to your individual needs and lifestyle by Dr Rajakariar. I was offered full a range of appropriate and thorough tests for my specific case and was highly satisfied with the explanations offered and felt reassured by the whole process, I would highly recommend Dr Rajakariar.
