Have found only the highest quality in the office of Vijayaraghavan!

Doctor Krishnaswami Vijayaraghavan is a doctor who provides his patients with the most professional and caring treatment. His focus when talking to a patient is genuinely interested in providing the most beneficial solutions. He speaks with an education and with an understanding that fits each patient. I have always told him that I will ask questions of him to make sure I understand all he is saying to me. We share common thoughts and I am awed by his personal ethics concerning his work in and outside of Abrazo. He shares his vision with me and makes sure that I, as his patient, understands all solutions. There is a synergy of doctor and patient that is appreciated. He respectfully makes sure of that! The very first time I met him, he outlined the manner in which he works and that gave me the confidence that I could recommend him to many others. I will always speak highly of him for his dedication to his profession and his energy to always help many others. He is truly outstanding.

As I said before we have recommended our friends and continue to do so when this is the conversation. A number 5 is not high enough. This place and the Doctor and his assistant get 100%.
