I strongly believe that educating patients and families about their medical condition, including the limits of our understanding and capabilities, is perhaps the most important role a physician can play. An informed patient is much better equipped to actively participate in the complex decision-making that goes into modern medicine.


Dr. Manoj Raghavan is an Associate Professor of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Medical College of Wisconsin. After completing training in Neurology followed by a fellowship in Clinical Neurophysiology and Epileptology at the New York University School of Medicine, Dr. Raghavan has primarily focused on the evaluation and management of patients with epilepsy. He has a special interest in the surgical treatment of medically refractory epilepsy. Dr. Raghavan's clinical expertise also covers general Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology.

Dr. Raghavan’s research interests include quantitative analysis of EEG and MEG signals, mechanisms underlying the generation of brain-rhythms and their reactions to mental activity, imaging methods for mapping brain functions and their reorganization with disease or injury, mechanisms underlying seizure-onset and termination, and models of visual sensitivity.

not sure by this question if I rated properly. I would rate him the best on the scale. He knows who I am from minute he walks in the exam room, before even looking at the electronic records. He is familiar with my health history, and speaks to them without record, and then checks record for assurance for me. Also I receive my blood tests results via my chart and have found no concerns to hear from the staff. They had in past, longer than e months allowed by survey.

Dr Raghavon has always shown a lot of care, concern and respect for our handicap daughter. Always spends time explaining things in language we can understand.

Dr. Raghavan is very knowledgeable about my medical conditions, asks appreciate questions about any issues since our last visit, and I have every confidence in his treatment of my health condition. He is also very pleasant to work with and makes me feel ar ease.

I waited over 30 minutes to see my doctor. We go over the same information every annual check up. I feel this could be done over a 5 minute phone call.

Dr seems to know everything about you as a patient ahead of seeing you. Not reading it off the computer it's like he knows everything about you personally and can answer anything regarding you as a patient without any hesitation seems very unbelievable how well he knows you as his patient!

I had to wait in the exam room for 40 minutes before the doctor was available to see me. It was just a routine follow up to keep getting refills on my medication with no health changes. The time spent with him was only about 10 minutes, just enough to say everything is good with no new side effects and concerns. It would be beneficial to have better organization to cut back on wasted patient time.

everyone in Dr. Rahgavans office was fantastic however, he ordered a blood draw, and the women there were the rudest women ever. they were not friendly or helpful at all.
