Dr Ramaiah did my cardiac bypass he explained evey aspect of the blockage in my heart and the intervention required to remove the blockage . His knowledge and compassion before the bypass and after the bypass made me confident that I put my trust in a very qualified surgeon.

Just had the pleasure of experiencing his treatment and management. He is pleasant, calm, very patient, and treats you like a family member. He is quite concerned with meeting your needs and the needs of your loved ones. Excellent bed side manner and I liked hearing the floor staff sing his praises which were unsolicited. Yes, I highly recommend him.

I would highly recommend Dr. Ramaiah. He was very professional, and treats his patients with utmost respect. During my husbands surgery, he and his staff kept me updated on the surgery every hour. The waiting time for an appointment was under 15 minutes. All of the staff was very nice and helpful.
