I had a consistently terrible experience at Dr. Ramni's office. He did not listen when I told him the bloodwork that he wanted to be performed had already been done, and hurried me out of the office although there were no other patients either before or after me. Similarly, I had to call the office four times to get the results of this bloodwork, being dismissed every time I called. I was shocked at how unprofessional both Dr. Ramani and his staff were.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ramani for about 20 years, mostly as a primary care doctor and when I do have other ailments. He is so pleasurable to be around. When I leave his office I feel mentally better because as he listens to my problems and has a way of helping me. I do give him a hard time about certain things and he handles it very well. I actually can joke around and be honest with him. I would never want to lose him as a doctor. He is excellent!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Ramani's for twelve years. He has always been very professional, as well as very knowledgeable of whatever I ask him or whatever problem I am having. He takes the time to listen to me and answer all my questions, and I usually have a lot. What I most appreciate about Dr. Ramani is his wonderful bedside manner. He has not only helped me on my way to feeling physically better, he helps me to feel emotionally better. I'm very glad that he is my doctor!

Dr Ramani has always been friendly & professional with my care & issues presented to him. He takes the time to explain blood work results with me. He takes his time with you listening & explaining things and doesn't rush you in and out like some doctors do.

Dr. Ramani has been my doctor for 30 plus years now. Over the years, he has come to know my family as well as me. He has always aired on the side of caution by getting second opinions when needed and giving expert advice when needed. He is well versed with internal medicine which has helped me with my various ailments over the years. I cannot say enough good things about the dedication of this man to his patients. He has always been there for me. I give the good doctor an "A+".

The worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. He did not know what was wrong with me and was rude and humiliating. He tried to make me take anti depressants. When should an infectious disease Doctor prescribe strong anti depressants for a patient? He told me I looked like I was ready to throw the towel in!
