Dr. Raja is absolutely PHENOMENAL! He is truly one of my top favorite doctors EVER. I was pretty nervous when I showed up for my first appointment with him with the fear that I will have to have surgery. After meeting him and talkShow moreing to him for a moment, a sense of calm overtook me. Even after he had made clear I would need surgery, the fear never returned! I recently had surgery and, again, the fear I felt before surgery was overtaken by a sense of calm while talking to him during pre-op and his bedside manner is one gazillion percent TOP NOTCH! Heck yeah, I will recommend Dr. Raja over and over again! Dr. Ali Raja, you are magnificent, unforgettable and I thank Neurologist Dr. Tatyana Stepanenko for referring me to you! ~LaCondia B

I was escorted to the exam room by a young lady who said that she would return to check my blood pressure. She never returned to the the exam room. I was in the exam room for an hour. I walked out without being seen by Dr. Raja.

Dr. Raja is the best neurosurgeon hands down. He will tell you in plan language what is wrong and how (we) can fix it and what to expect after the surgery and for the rest of your life. His staff is also first class and I would not recommend another surgeon in Arkansas for your neurological needs.
