Dr. Raju helped my father and I several years ago .. he was thoughtful, patient and most of all had the most kind spirit and manners. I worked with him at NIMC back in the late 90's-for ten years plus. I always enjoyed his humor, expertise and putting the patients foremost--- I will keep this amazing person and doctor in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr. Raju will be missed by many very much. His love and compassion for his patients was like no other doctor. He was always smiling, and he always took the time to see a person in need no matter if he was in clinic or not. He cared for his staff like family. My children cared for him very much as well. Every time they would come to the office Dr. Raju was ready with candies and cookies, asking them if they did their homework and are doing well in school. I was very blessed to have known him. He will be missed very much!

Dr. Raju was a Great Man... I have worked with Dr. Raju for over 25 years at McHenry and he was such a great teacher and even more caring about his individual patients and their families. There was not or even still a day that doesn't go by that one of his patient's asks about him. He has been truly missed and is forever in our hearts. So sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss, I worked with Dr. Raju for many years and truly loved him as a caring thoughtful doctor, and a loyal wonderful colleague. I saw how his patients loved him and even more when we started seeing them at our clinic when he couldn't any longer. Never was an unkind word ever said by any of his patients or friends, and that was his true legacy. He will be missed.........

I had the great privilege of working with Dr. Raju for 17 years. Dr. Raju was a dedicated and passionate physician. He was selfless in his time he gave to Centegra and his patients. He truly loved what he did. Words cannot explain how kind and gentle of a soul he was. Dr.Raju took me under his wing as a new graduate nurse and never stopped teaching me as I grew in the field of Cardiology. He took the time to know everyone, his patients, their families, and all those he worked with. I loved seeing him take pure joy in becoming a grandfather. He would come by daily to share pictures and stories of the time he had shared with them. He was also so proud of his boys and what they had accomplished. You will be forever missed in the Heart Center. May you rest in peace.
