Let us express our deepest condolences as Dr. Raj Dhingra continues to be on our mind ever since the years of his nephrology fellowship at the University of Michigan. I always remember him from so many years ago as an outstanding physician, so eager to learn and excited to contribute to clinically relevant research with us. I am sure that his patients and colleagues will miss him as a most caring, wonderful and experienced physician.
We also miss him very much. His life was cut very short but it was a very full and exemplary life.

A profound loss. Dr. Dhingra worked with a few of my other doctors to reach a firm diagnosis and coordinate testing and treatment for my kidney issue. He was a kind listener and was excellent at responding to concerns between visits as well. Dr. Dhingra was a deeply knowledgeable human who explained difficult outcomes and answered questions in a way that showed his empathy towards others. My first appointment with him was just under a year ago, but he left such a lasting impact. He will forever be remembered for his strong support as part of my care team during a difficult time. My condolences to his family, friends, patients, staff and peers.

I was a patient of Dr. Dhingra for almost 20 years. He was the best doctor of all the doctors I ever had. He was so compassionate and had a personality not typically found in health care professionals. He was fun and easy to talk to and he was serious and knowledgeable when he needed to be. I will miss him very much.

I am just at a loss of someone so talented in his field of nephrology. He will be missed by all of his office staff and also the many DaVita patients he cared for over the years. May peace be with Raj and his entire family and staff.

What an amazing soul. He took care of my husband for 19 years. During my husbands most recent hospital stay, he was the only Dr who consistently came to visit him each morning. It meant so much to him to know that someone cared about him.

We trusted Dr Dinghra with my life as he followed my kidney disease for the last 15 years. His care was so attentive, thorough, and with much forethought. The words grace and humility indeed describe this man. My heart ached at the news of his death but it also swelled at the thought of being cared for by such a great doctor. We will pray for much grace for his family and friends who are also mourning the loss of Dr Dinghra.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dr. Dhingras family. He was a wonderful and kind person who not only felt like a doctor but treated us as a friend. He has been my nephrologist for at least 19 years. Both my wife and myself always knew we could trust and believe in what he said. He will be truly missed.

I had just finished talking with him on Wednesday over my blood tests. He was always so kind and gentle in his manner. That conversation was later Wednesday afternoon. He had to pass away soon after that. Such a loss !

Rohan and Rhea,
I only met your father at open house and he was so proud of the both of you. He just glowed with pride telling me about you and what you did outside of school. I'm so sorry for your loss.

Un abrazo fuerte,
