Dr. Vasudevan U Raghuraman has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

Very poor patient interaction, OTC medication not working, said to continue them, lose weight. Spent approx. 10 minutes on a new patient visit. The rest was on a form I filled out before the visit. Took 3 months to get the appointment, even though I do not need a referral through my insurance. Did not explain or instruct on diaphragm exercises he said I needed to do, only lose weight and stay on the meds that are not working. I have Barrett's Esophagus, so this is not appropriate care.
Incorrect diagnosis. Talked over the husband the entire visit, did not address questions or concerns. When further testing was requested due to his misdiagnosis he refused to order them. Once we were able to see my husband's medical file we realized that not only had he misdiagnosed him completely but he had added things to his medical file that were completely untrue, not one time but twice. Prescribed medication that could have caused great harm due to the incorrect medical history he entered in husband's file. We were referred to another doctor who caught the mistakes he made and ran the tests that were able to diagnose what my husband actually had. BOTTOM LINE - Arrogant, rushed and false patient history. Do not trust Dr. Raghuraman or his staff if you want adequate medical care. Patient's should not have to question medications they are being prescribed by any doctor let alone a "specialist."
I saw Dr Raghuraman 4 years ago as a follow-up to being treated by him while I was pregnant and in the hospital. While I was pregnant I was hospitalized for severe chest pain, under Dr Raghuraman's care I began to respond to medicines for an esophageal ulcer. He did seem to have good bedside manner, although I was very out of it due to the level of pain I was in. After my daughter was born I saw the doctor for an upper GI and follow-up. I was very disappointed in my follow-up. Prior to my appointment his office sent me a medical journal article on the condition he found during my upper GI. At my appointment I had some questions and he merely asked if I had read the article, as if that should have been enough. I am not a medical professional, I should not have been made to feel ridiculous for having questions about the condition.
Very poor office staff. Went to appt. just to be told I didn't have one. Come back in 3 months! Likes to have massive testing done found nothing. Now wants more testing. Had colonoscopy, polyps removed (3) haven't heard a peep out of him about results, called got such a run around I hung up phone. Still don't have any results. Looking for new doctor!
