      I met Dr. Saranathan when I was hospitalized for sepsis at Memorial Hermann Southwest. My aunt, a retired cardiologist nurse recommended that I make him my Nephrologist. I trust Dr. Saranathan and his partners.

      Terrible bedside manner and didn't know how to handle a patient with Pancreatitis caused by a gallstone that got stuck and caused insulin buildup and kidney damage. Barged into room, announced a Diabetic diagnosis and stormed off! He was clouded by his own insulin dependency and treated patient as if they were the same, pumping insulin into system. Held in hospital 8 days and refused to get patient an endocrinologist upon request.
