Dr Ramanathan and his PA were very good to both me and my wife. We were treated with respect and a general concern for our medical situation.

September 22, 2016

Nurse Assistant and Physician provided me excellent/outstanding care.

September 22, 2016

I entrusted my health care to Dr. Ramanathan and his team in 2011. I am so grateful for his on-going support, stellar medical knowledge, pleasant attitude, and respectful approach whenever interfacing with me. I would like to add, as of this writing, I am no longer taking diabetic medication, for I am managing diabetes with diet and exercise. I am convinced the bariatric surgery and on-going follow-up have played a significant role!

September 22, 2016

Dr. Ramanathan and his PA Kelly were cordial and welcoming. Each provided information, encouraged my questions, and was engaged as a listener. I feel confident that I the plan I'm electing to follow for the next several months is right for me. I look forward to seeing this team again as I make some progress.
