The questions I didn't answer were not applicable. I saw Dr. Ramanathan regarding surgery. Dr. Ramanathan and the first Dr I saw were very nice and explained everything in detail. I had an excellent experience.

everyone was very nice and professional but still explained things in a way I could clearly understand.

The BEST same as in 2013!

Dr Ramanathan's expertise with bowel surgery proved invaluable in the excision of a pelvic mass involving my lower bowel . He was brought on the team by Dr Halina Zyczynski . His intricate knowledge of my case, obvious deep concern for my Well - being , overall communication style and willingness to answer every question with thoughtful expertise and patience compels me to rank Dr. Ramanathan a 10 BEST possible. I have experienced many doctors on my medical journey and Dr Halina Zyczynski (my hero/ I hold in the highest regard) only made things better with the addition of Dr Ramanathan to my team!

July 27, 2017

Dr. Ramanathan is an excellent doctor and I am very happy with the results of my surgery. However, I was in his office for 2 hours for this visit. His assistant talked to me for 10-15 minutes then the Dr. talked to me for about 5-10 minutes. So over an hour and a half of my visit was spent waiting.

Seven years ago I had gastric bypass and in all that time, even before surgery, the personnel have always been polite and courteous.
