Suja Raju, MD

Dr. Suja Raju is a psychiatrist who believes in a biopsychosocial approach to medical care. She wishes to provide her patients with a better quality of life by understanding their mental health.

“I chose psychiatry because most people never have the privilege to know what patients with severe mental illness deal with, let alone help improve their quality of life. I wanted to be that person,” she said.

In addition in English, Dr. Raju is also fluent in Malayalam.
