About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Are deeply impressed by the deep knowledge, professional ethics, education, patience and professionalism of my doctor and the staff who serve met.

exceptionally good Dr and others involved
Swedish Patient

Doctor didn't spend a lot of time with me but he solved the problem and he was 100% correct in his conclusion so I 100% recommend him.
Swedish Patient

Outstanding bedside manner and care. Dr. Rama spent the time to listen to get a complete history of the complaint, then asked more questions. He didn't seem to direct his questions to any specific diagnosis before getting all the information, then going through, with the patient, the complete list of differentials, explaining each one, and his thoughts about each. He had such a professional approach and presentation. I will keep his name, and will highly recommend him to any friends or family in need of a very good GI physician.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Ramakrishnan was very thorough, friendly, and caring. I appreciated very much that he had clearly reviewed my records of previous care by a different provider before entering my treatment room. I was there for a second opinion, and also hoping to find a gastroenterologist I could have confidence in. I have found him!
Swedish Patient

The doctor did not tell me what prescription he was prescribing. The prescription was sent in right away but did not arrive at pharmacy for days. When it did arrive it did not have directions on how to take the medicine, so the pharmacy could not dispense it. They had to track down an on call doctor. Then the directions were changed after I had received the medicine.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Ramakrisna is wonderful. I can't speak more highly of his compassion and concern. I have never had a doctor, let alone a specialist who I know is so busy personally reach out to me. So thankful for his help and ongoing support. I'm fully confident in him and his abilities.
Swedish Patient

I have complete confidence in Dr. Ramakrishnan. Would recommend him to everyone I know.
