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.
