The Provider Needs to come on time to the patients Appointments

April 06, 2017

Amber CRNP was the first staff to discuss my pending surgical procedure - she was fabulous! She took her time explaining my options, listened carefully to my concerns and complimented me on my knowledge (and research) of my upcoming bariatric procedure. She helped me understand the various options, the downtime and maintenance post op. I have worked in an OR setting previously, and she is an asset to your team! She calming and fun demeanor put me at ease with my surgical decision. Dr Ramanathan is simply a pleasure!! He is caring and personable. He took the time to candidly answer my questions and reassuringly assisted me to finalize my bariatric surgical choice. I have yet to meet surgeons and their team who are this high level of compassion and friendliness. I'm feeling very comfortable to have them work with me to obtain my healthy weight goals.

my care provider is really good would recommend him to anyone I know that's interesting in the surgery

I could not have been more pleased that when I expected to make an appointment, I was actually seen that same day. Both doctors spent a long time with me explaining exactly what problem I had and how they would deal with it. I was given options and great advice. They were kind, compassionate, and spoke in easy-to-understand language..

Dr. Ramanathan is a wonderful surgeon and a caring Dr. Kelly was incredibly responsive to all questions I had when I was in and sent messages from outside their office. she always got back to me within hours - and sometimes minutes. she kept me on track with all things I needed to get and needed to do before surgery. she's really great and unlike any physicians assistant I've ever worked with. Ellen is so knowledgeable, was extremely throrough with all information I needed and answered all question I had.this team gave me confidence I chose the absolute best team for this procedure. I only wish the rest of my Dr. offices could be like this one.
