I switched to Dr. Rai after struggling for three months with chronic abdominal and back pain. After undergoing multiple tests, scans, and procedures, I still didn't have relief from pain or a diagnosis. I felt that each doctor I saw focused on their expertise but I didn't have anyone managing my total care. When I met with Dr. Rai, he listened carefully and took into consideration… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I speak several languages and am very comfortable with cultural diversity/unity of humanity, and I can explain medical jargon in terms that my patients understand. I enjoy the role of being my patients' healthcare "quarterback", and I don't like to lose.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Rai
Dr. Rai has been our family physician for 4 generations of my family, all at once. From my 100-year-old grandmother, my parents, me, and my children. He has been there for us, giving us excellent care, through thick and thin. I truly can't imagine not having Dr. Rai in our lives.
Dr Rai is a very caring professional doctor. He always lets you have all the time you need to describe your symptoms and come to a good solution. When I need fast refills of my medicine he is very quick to make sure it’s filled. And he better not retire for at least 25 years . A very happy patient:)
Dr Rai really turned around my health situation and got me on a healthier lifestyle faster than I would have thought possible. I’m really thankful for Dr Rai’s wise words and expert care. Thank You Dr Rai, you’ve really made a difference in my life.
I had terrible stomach flu and could not keep anything down. My husband drove me from the fires in Santa Rosa, Ca on the worst car ride of my life, throwing up in a garbage bag all the way back home for three hours. I called Dr Rai. He had a prescription waiting for me at my local
Pharmacy. Within an hour of taking the pill, all the symptoms stopped. Thank you Dr. Rai
Last year, I had an unfortunate experience which required a trip to the emergency room. After a fall that impaired my ability to walk, I was admitted to the hospital for three days. I have to be honest, those days are a blur, but what I do remember are the reassuring words my wife and I received from Dr. Kuljeet Rai. While in the hospital, my wife and I were surrounded by an unfamiliar… See more
Doctor Rai has been so incredibly helpful in managing my healthcare. He is patient, knowledgeable, and funny! I actually enjoy whenever I have to go in to the office, and I know that’s a weird thing to say about a doctor’s office. I appreciate how thorough he is and supportive. I can’t imagine trusting any other doctor the way I trust Dr Rai and Gaby!!
Dear Dr. Rai, Have a wonderful National Doctors’ Day 🎈 How exciting to be king for a day 👑 Now you know I’m an aspiring writer so I hope you don’t mind me writing a book about how lucky we are to have you in our lives. Get ready because Dale and I are going to gush a little about you so don’t get embarrassed. Can you believe I actually have 2,000 characters remaining so I could go on and on… See more
Dr. Rai always listens, is so well-versed in medicine, which enables him to impart his knowledge to me as his patient for my well-being. I trust any medical decisions Dr. Rai makes regarding my life.
