I really liked going to this Doctor. I was treated with respect and with kindness, especially during the procedure. They took their time and answered all my questions. Dr. Rayan did a great job and I had no problems during or after my procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Rayan.
Varicose vein surgery painless and now no more ankle swelling
I couldn’t deal with the ankle swelling anymore. Finally went to do something about it. Laser vein ablation was very easy. Mild soreness day 5. Nomore swelling. The worst part of the procedure was wearing thigh high hose for a week afterward. Thats how hard the surgery was! Dr. Rayan is also a fantastic person!
Pain in my leg went away immediately. I can dance again!
I had my lesser and greater saphenous vein ablated… It’s changed my life I am pain-free I’m so grateful for Dr Rayan and his team.
Procedures are pretty much painless, you might feel a little stick like you were pricked by a rose.
If ever I had a question, or concern they answered and addressed it immediately. Making an appointment was easy. The staff is friendly efficient, the office is clean and immaculate.
I recommend them highly. Many thanks again to the entire office.
From the minute I walked into the office for my initial consultation, I felt comforted and knew I would be in great hands. The whole staff was so nice and tried to make me feel relaxed and eased my anxiety. Dr. Rayan is wonderful. He told me what to expect each step of the way and always made sure to ask if I was doing ok.
Would definitely recommend Dr. Rayan and his staff to everyone. So glad I was referred to his office!!
Dr. Rayan is a Keeper
Dr. Rayan is the best ever and so easy to talk with,
My vein care surgery today went very well!
Dr. Rayan is already making an improvement in my life. My leg veins required top talent. My vein care surgery today went very well! This is a relief and will improve my quality of life. I can see how he makes a difference in the lives of his patients! His kindness, sincere caring, and concern make everything better and are a great encouragement. I thank him and his staff so very much for taking care of me and being so focused and skilled. Though we have more to do, I believe every day of my life will be better because of him and I encourage others to call him too.
Dr Rayan is wonderful. I was referred to him after returning from China where I suffered a TIA. His knowledge, clarity, and humanity calmed my family and guided me through the following months.
The Best Doctor Ever
I had issues that other Doctors could not seem to find out what was wrong. Dr Rayan found out the issue and took care of it I had to have a lower lower aorta replacement, it went great no issues. I have recommended to him others and they have loved him.
He talks to you and lets you know every thing that is going on and how he is going to take care of it. That is a lost art with most doctors today.
He is my doctor for life.

Too kind. Happy to have had the opportunity to help.
great personality, great treatment
Very comfortable and informative, lasered a leg vein that was causing some pain and slowed minor scrapes from healing. 100% effective – all good now.
FANTASTIC SURGEON AND FRIENDLY CARING PERSONALITY
Great surgeon, had right carotid artery extremely narrowed. I was very worried and scared. Dr. Rayan made me feel less anxious. He did a great job and everything healed quickly. I asked many of my personal MD’s who they would recommend, he always came up on top of the list. He also has a very friendly caring personality, which is very important to me.
Explains things thoroughly with as much time as you need
Doc and staff are very kind and helpful. The web portal is very helpful. The doctor explains different types of treatment, procedures and surgical options in as much detail as you need to understand. I would have rate him one of the better doctors that I have. Being in the Scripps network is very helpful as every doc can seeing the others notes, procedures and test/radiology reports others have known. Because of Coronavirus some tests, procedures and surgery have been preserved but they are ready to start kick it into high gear when the all clear is given as they are working on authorizations and CT/MRIs now
The Best Vascular Surgeon
I have been going to Dr. Rayan for several years and he is the BEST! He has treated my deep varicose leg veins as well as my spider veins multiple times without causing any pain or suffering. He has a wonderful bedside manner and he is excellent at what he does. His staff is always so positive and supporting. They work with the insurance companies to help you get the treatment you need. I will continue to go to Dr. Rayan whenever I need him and I will recommend him to all of my friends and relatives.
Saved my life
Dr Rayan is an outstanding doctor. He has a great presence about him and doesn’t sugarcoat things. I trust him unconditionally and anyone that has come with me to appts are very taken with him. I actually do owe him my life since he came to the emergency room to handle my blocked iliac artery
My Left Carotid Artery Stent procedure (TCAR)
On January 23, 2020, Dr. Rayan and his team performed a TCAR procedure on my left Carotid artery at Scripps La Jolla Hospital. The surgery went as he described it would go and he and his team performed professionally, with great care shown as to my well being. I can’t express how much I appreciated the way I was treated during this event. I would definitely recommend Dr. Rayan to anyone contemplating such a surgery!
The receptionists were very friendly. I was also helped by a gentleman who used this gel and machine to see my veins. He was very friendly and professional. The only thing that i wish was different was the time spent with the Dr. we waited for him for several minutes, which is Ok , but when he came in everything was fast the consult and everything. I felt like he was in a hurry. I understand i cant have him for a long time but i felt like i had more questions to ask and felt hurried. To be completely honest i was pretty upset when a couple weeks later I see what Doctors office Charged my Insurance for that visit.
Response from Sunil Rayan M.D.
Thank you for the comments. Although we are busy, we try and make sure that each and every patient gets the attention they deserve. Definitely something we can improve in the future.
Three visits over a 10yr time period–
Over 10yrs ago on a visit to San Diego I had a DVT attack requiring emergency room treatment. The ER recommended I contact Dr. Rayan on whether I could fly back home. His office arranged an emergency visit. He was most solicitous and provided very professional and caring information to me. Returning to San Diego to live a few years later, my physician recommended that I discontinue my DVT medication–warfarin. My cardiologist disagreed so I returned to Dr Rayan who agreed with my physician. I went on baby-aspirin and blood thinning supplements. Six years later, my new physician and ER doctor tried to put me back on DVT prescription drugs. So once again, I visited Dr. Rayan who examined the ultrasound records and listened to how I was treating my DVT condition. He determined that the ultrasound scans were showing my old blockages. And, he felt that my supplement treatment with my warning signs of problems made me quite safe. I have escaped the side effects of the prescription drugs plus obtaining additional benefits of my supplement beyond blood thinning.
I can NOT say enough on how fortunate I feel in having Dr. Sunil Rayan as my vascular surgeon. It is difficult these days to find doctors who listen and have the competence to be open minded about non-tradition treatment. I wish I could have him as my primary care physician, but understand that he is too valuable in his current area of specialization. I am just so thankful that he has time to see me when I am in great need of his services. Mike an 80yr old submarine veteran of 5 Cold War Polaris strategic missile patrols.
Dr. Rayan saved my life!
In the fall of 2018, I was diagnosed as having a partial blockage in one of my carotid arteries (behind my left ear). My MD referred me to Dr. Rayan, whose nurse conducted an ultra-sound in his office.
Dr. Rayan discussed the results with me, saying that he didn’t see a problem, considering that it was only 60% blocked — and the other three were completely clear. But he suggested that I see a cardiologist, saying that when there is plaque build-up in any artery, we needed to see how my heart was doing.
THIS SAVED MY LIFE!
An angiogram revealed that I had FIVE coronary arteries that were severely blocked. (I thought that my fatigue and tightness in my chest were simply the result of being 67 years old and 60 lbs. over-weight).
The day before I was to meet with my prospective surgeon, I started having chest pain and shortness of breath. I had an emergency quintuple by-pass two days later, before I had suffered a heart-attack or any other permanent damage.
This was all due to Dr. Rayan’s insightful – and life-saving — suggestion.
We first met Dr. Rayan when I needed to have an emergency surgery. After first checking, we found that he was highly recommended by other surgeons in the Scripps system. He is immediately pleasant, welcoming questions, and very skilled. Since then, I have had two more surgeries performed by Dr. Rayan, which has only increased my high regard for him.
Best varicose vein doctor!!!
I went to Dr. Rayan a few years ago for the first time, my legs in the back had so many varicose veins I thought it would take me several painful visits to try to clean it up. To my surprise Dr. Rayan was able to take care of all of them in just two visits. I followed all his post care recommendations and my legs look great not a single vein in sight 🙂 I only wish I had gone to him sooner so I my legs would have looked better a decade ago. I highly recommend him, he is professional, honest and a great doctor.
Great skill and “bedside” manner
Dr. Rayan removed an over 90% blockage in my left carotid artery. The surgery incision location is hardly noticeable a few months after healing. He was very knowledgeable and explained things in easy to understand layman terms. I highly recommend him.
