Dr. Ramakrishnan was not only very personable but very intelligent and informative. He decided on a plan and get it in place. I loved this.

The closest appointment available was more than a month away. I texted Dr. Ramakrishnan using Mychart about the problem I experienced and he replied right away; he stayed longer to see me and found a spot for me for the procedure I needed in a day. I appreciate his care very much as well as his friendliness and professionalism.

Great dr. concern & care.

He consistently goes above and beyond to try to help me manage symptoms, solve problems creatively and be empathic.

Very good "bedside manner." This was my first time meeting Dr. R. and I would highly recommend him. I think he was over booked so our appointment was very short and rushed, but I felt he did his best and listened well.

I was surprised at how quickly my appointment was over. I thought I might receive more suggestions from him, but what he advised me about at my last appointment worked.

Dr. Ram is very nice & has helped my condition so much!

Dr. Ramakrishnan is wonderful! He is patient and CARING!

NOt much time was spent with me in consult, the recommendation was for an Endoscopy which he did schedule quickly for that I am grateful but the procedure showed nothing and he seemed pretty dismissive at that point which bothered me greatly. he later in the week called to schedule a colonoscopy which I am having done this week I am hoping this will show results for my issue and that I will not again be dismissed with no care.
