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.
Dr. Rayan’s approach to patient care overexceeded my expectation. I was referred for a second opinion and he treated me with respect, listened to my concerns without prejudice, ensured my understanding of his recommendations and asked if I had any questions. It is hard to find a doctor who is down to earth and allows you to express your concerns without being interrupted or judged. He is passionate to the core and right away you sense that you are in good hands. I’m grateful that I was referred for a second opinion because he brought clarity and found a resolution to a circulatory condition that has caussed me so much pain and immobility. I highly recommend Dr.Rayan to anyone who is seeking a decent, highly educated and trustworthy physician.
I would highly recommend Dr. Rayan as a Surgeon. He operated on me several years ago and I would use him again if I had to. The office staff was very polite and professional.
Dr. Rayan’s excellent surgical demeanor.
Dr. Rayan conveys an optimistic professional attitude that I have only occasionally seen in my frequent dealing with surgeons during my 40+ years of practice as a surgical pathologist. He clearly and concisely explains what needs to be done without rush or abruptness. I and my wife have both been his patients and his attention to pre-op and post -op care could not have been better. I think surgical residents would really benefit from spending some time under Dr.Rayan’s direction.
The entire staff is very caring and attentive. Dr. Rayan is always right on time and makes sure to answer all of my questions. A great team!
Saved My Life
Almost a year ago my son took me to Scripps ER as I thought I was having a retina detach. It was my good fortune that Dr. Rayan was on duty and was able to determine I had a 90% blockage of the carotid artery. Before surgery the following day he explained the procedure and answered all of my questions and concerns. I found Dr Rayan to be a caring and intelligent surgeon.
Dr. Rayan is an Excellent Physician
I completely trust Dr Rayan w/ my arterial health. He has always addressed my concerns, and explains things clearly to me .
Dr. Rayan helped me after 4 yrs of going to different doctors to find out why I had tightness in my buttocks’ and upper thigh.
He ordered a CT scan with dye and seen immediately blockage in a blood vessel. He did surgery put in stent and was able to walk without pain
immediately. Can’t believe I suffered four years with all the other doctors.
Great medical experience
Dr Rayan has treated me on two surgeries Once for varicose veins and once for carotid artery blockage. Great doctor
Excellent and on time
He served me three times and was excellent on each occasion. What is more he didn’t leave me sitting. He was on time! I wish all doctors were as good
WENT THROUGH BOTH GROIN AREAS–PLACED SHIELD AROUND THE BULGING SECTION//// ALL HAS BEEN GREAT///
my first office visit
I was very impressed and satisfied with my office visit with Dr. Rayan. He was very professional and made me feel very relaxed. He explained the blockages in my neck that Dr. Charlat was concerned about. he clarified the CT scan that he mentioned was over read by others. He immediately took an ultra sound of my neck and explained the results immediately. I never felt that Dr. Rayan was rushing or not giving me the attention that I felt was required. I will definitely return to see Dr. Rayan in August of 2020. He is a true professional , sort of reminds me of family Drs many years ago . Class Act.
Who is Dr Rayan?
Dr Rayan Is not only extremely qualified, capable, and knowledgeable, He saved my butt when it needed saving.
He is also a nice guy.
I could only walk about 20 yards without so much pain that I had to stop and after Dr. Rayan placed a stent in my groin I can walk without any pain at all.
Dr. Rayan is the best!

If you have a serious vascular issue consider Dr. Rayan
About 10 years ago I was one of 19 participants in a clinical trial of a medical technology to treat serious vascular disease. The technology did not work and I was told I had 6 months to live. I saw Dr. Ryan and he did a procedure to reduce the risk of my passing away. Dr. Ryan was outstanding, reassuring me that as my conditioned worsened he would monitor and recommend the appropriate interventions.Over the following 10 years I needed three additional procedures as my vascular system was continuing to slowly fail. I am now stable and alive thanks to him and the other physicians, nurses and technicians at Scrips Encinitas and Scrips La Jolla Hospitals. If you have a serious vascular issue consider Dr. Rayan.
