About Dr. Rajan

Philosophy of care

First I review the child's medical history to learn why he or she is seeing me and what’s already been done to address the problem. When I examine the child, I listen to any concerns and keep an open mind. Then I’ll give you and the child recommendations and options. I explain everything as plainly as I can, often using pictures. Since inserting ear tubes is the most common operation we do, I always carry a set in my pocket so I can show them to you. I answer questions and work with you on a plan that’s the most appropriate. I’m always happy to let parents know what option I would choose if my own child had the same medical problem.

Why I entered medicine

When I was a child, I had ear, nose and throat problems, including hearing loss, ear wax buildup and allergies. So having those experiences steered me toward pediatric ENT and otolaryngology. Also, my mother is a nurse. When I was in middle school, she suffered an asthma attack and I helped her with her breathing treatment. Helping her made an impression on me and probably inspired me to enter the medical field.  

Community involvement

I help with community outreach initiatives at the church I attend with my family. Recently, we raised money and collected food for community soup kitchens, distributed school supplies to kids that needed them and provided socks to needy children.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids. We often watch movies and visit local parks. I’m a foodie, so I enjoy trying new restaurants with my family. My friends and family enjoy the coffee drinks and cocktails I make for them. I’m a big Eagles fan. The year they won the Superbowl, I was in Atlanta. But I flew to Philadelphia for the parade.

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.
