This was my initial visit with Dr. Ramanathan and I was very pleased with the care I received. I was forced to find another bariatric doctor after the closing my doctor's office at St.Margaret's but other than having a little further drive, I am happy that I found Dr. Ramanathan for my continued bariatric care.

Dr Ramanathan is an excellent surgeon and over the course of the months that I have seen him, I have had much faith in his skill. I did have some concerns prior to surgery and wished that he personally had spent more time with me rather than his resident but I was the last patient of the day and I felt slightly rushed by the experience.

July 02, 2015

Dr. RAMANESH WAS VERY FRIENDLY. I FELT I COULD TRUST HIM. HE HAS A POSITIVE PERSONALITY.VERY TRUSTWORTHY

June 25, 2015

Attentive to my questions and concerns. Provided adequate information.

June 25, 2015

Dr. Ramanathan was very understanding of my condition and answered all of my questions about the surgery he will perform thoughtfully and compassionately. He made me feel confident about the surgery and helped me arrive at the best choice for the procedure.

It is very difficult to judge based on one visit, but Dr. Raj seemed like a very nice Dr.
