About Dr. Rajan

Philosophy of care

I try to do what the patient needs while trying to be respectful of their ways and customs. For example, some may prefer a more aggressive approach to treatment while others may prefer a more conservative approach. I try to let each person know about various treatment options and discuss what would work well with that patient. We work together to figure out a plan that’s most appropriate for the patient and the family.

Why I entered medicine

My mother is a nurse, and she was an influence. When I was in 7th or 8th grade, she was taking care of snow outside and got an asthma attack. I helped get her into the house and administer her breathing treatment. Being able to help with her medication made an impression on me. Those influences, along with my interest in science, helped steer me toward a career in medicine.

Community involvement

I moved here recently from Atlanta, where I was president of a metro Atlanta society for ear, nose and throat doctors, and helped organize several educational talks for physicians in the area. I was also involved with our church there, providing health care lectures to members of the community. With our church in the Lehigh Valley, we help with initiatives such as soup kitchens and a program that helps provide families in need with items such as clothing and diapers.

Personal interests

I’m a foodie so I enjoy trying new restaurants with my wife. I’m also a big Philly pro sports fan, with the Eagles being my number one. I like visiting local parks with my kids and catching a movie when we can.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
