Raphael’s focus is upon people’s health. He’s a tireless healer, with an unlimited bag of healing techniques. The archangel also supports those who are healers, or those who want to become professional healers. Raphael functions as both a healer’s and a patient’s advocate by matching up sick people with the best health-care providers.

As if it’s not stressful enough to get sick, you also have the daunting task of selecting and paying for the best physician. When you’re stressed about an illness, it’s difficult to think clearly in picking a doctor. Fortunately, Archangel Raphael can lead you to the appropriate treatment, if you’ll ask for his help, as Denise did.

Denise’s husband was diagnosed with a serious precancerous condition of the esophagus. Doctors said the only course of action was for him to undergo surgery to remove most of his esophagus. This was a dangerous procedure, and it needed to be performed by a surgeon who did this type of operation routinely.

Their doctor recommended nearby Boston for the surgery, at one of the many outstanding medical facilities there. But, he gave no specific recommendations, and Denise and her husband were on their own, frightened and unsure about which hospital or surgeon to choose. They only had their doctor’s instructions to “find someone as familiar with this surgery as he is with brushing his own teeth.”

So Denise asked God and Archangel Raphael for help and guidance as she began researching on the Internet to look for Boston hospitals and doctors specializing in this procedure. Imagine her confusion when several doctors at different hospitals showed up in her online search. She had no idea which way to turn as she scrolled through the names. So she continued asking the archangel for guidance.

Suddenly, one of the doctors listed stuck out because his first name was Raphael. As soon as Denise saw this, she knew that he was the answer to her prayers. She clicked on the link for him and discovered which hospital he worked at in Boston, and all of his information. There was even an e-mail address to contact him directly with questions! She hesitantly wrote him a message explaining the situation. The doctor wrote back within a few hours and wanted all her husband’s information, and he set up an appointment to see him almost immediately.

They went to see the doctor, and discovered he was a pioneer in this surgery and one of the best in the country to perform it. People came to him from all over for this surgery. His services were also covered by their medical insurance, which was a miracle in itself.

But the story doesn’t end there. As the day of surgery approached, their apprehension grew, and fear set in. After all, this was a risky operation. Their fears were high the day before surgery when Denise and her husband got in the car and headed to Boston. They hadn’t been driving very long when Denise’s fear reached the point of complete panic, and she was nearly immobilized.

She called out for Archangel Raphael’s help in her mind and heart, and asked him for a sign that the surgery would go well. No sooner had she done so than a car pulled out from a side road in front of them. To Denise’s utter disbelief and sheer joy, the license plate on the car was a vanity plate that said: “RAPHAEL.”

Denise knew in that exact moment that no matter what came next, they’d be okay. She was certain that Archangel Raphael was with them and that they’d picked the right doctor. Denise was immediately filled with an overwhelming sense of calm and peace, and tears of gratitude rolled down her face.

Seven years later, her husband is doing amazingly well and is still having annual visits with the remarkable doctor Archangel Raphael sent them to.

Denise noticed and trusted the signs from above, which led her to Raphael’s hand-selected physician. This requires faith, admittedly, because someone could decide that such signs were coincidental. The angels can only do so much when conveying guidance to us. We can meet them halfway there by keeping an open mind and following the clues they give us.
