I WOULD MOST LIKELY RECOMMEND DR. VENKATRAMAN TO A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER THAT HAS A FORM OF CANCER SIMULAR TO WHAT I HAVE FOR HER PATIENCE AND WILLINGNESS TO EXPLAIN YOUR DIAGNOISIS IN TERMS THAT ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND WILL MAKE THE PATIENT FEEL THAT THERE IS HOPE. I WAS ABLE TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT IN LESS THAN 5 DAYS OF MY DIAGNOSIS. THE FRONT OFFICE STAFF HAS ALWAYS BEEN FRIENDLY AND WORKED WITH ME TO SET UP MY APPOINTMENTS. DR. VENKATRAMAN IS VERY PATIENT AND PROFFESSONAL .

Dr. V's office has very courteous nurses. They always remember my name and give me a hug during my follow up appointments. During my infusions, they always smiled and reminded me to stay positive. Dr. V's wait time has significantly decreased, which has been wonderful.

I was diagnosed in March 2012 with breast cancer and Dr. V has been my oncologist since the very beginning. Without Dr. V and the other group of cancer doctors she works with, I would not be here today. I'm a SURVIVOR because her hard work and dedication in ensuring I get the best care possible. Dr. V does not procrastinate in anything she does whether its referring me for scans, scheduling biopsies, or planning out my treatment plans. I definitely would recommend Dr. V to my family and friends.

Dr.V is very courteous, knowledgeable and detail oriented. Her patient care and bedside manners are admirable. I highly recommend her for the skill sets and patient satisfactions.

She explained to me in details my lab reports and associated risks/positive outcomes based on my treatment/medication management. She is accessible and makes efforts to give feed back through her Practice Staff in respect of my treatment/appointment to avoid delay. She is well grounded and experienced in her specialty.

I was recently admitted to the hospital (ICU) with acute GI bleeding. While other tests were being conducted, Dr. V efficiently and quickly ordered a CT scan. The CT scan revealed a mass in my small bowel. The hospital and the surgeon were then able to quickly perform surgery and remove the mass. Dr.V’s skill and attention to detail was instrumental in saving my life. She is intelligent, diligent, detail oriented, and truly cares about her patients. I highly recommend to her any patient.

I am a retired project manager from a reputable Federal Agency in Wasington DC. Dr.V had been my primary care physician for over 20 years and has been intimately associated with me after my heart stent procedure to the LAD artery in 1999. I have been following up with her and her team of beloved associates who had been keeping me in good shape forgeneral consulting and more involved issues be it my bone density, kidney and liver functions - general over all well being . Superb Doctor and group

Dr. "V" saved my life! She was very caring when relaying the treatment that I needed to have and took me through everything step by step. When I was admitted in the hospital, she took time out of her day to come and check on me twice and make sure I was getting the care that I needed. I appreciate her and her staff. Jennifer is on point with her office management and the front desk staff is always kind. They are awesome!!!

Ten plus (10+) years ago, my Primary doctor referred me to Dr. Venkatraman for bloodwork as a Hematologist. Very pleased with 'patient-centric' attention and providing details to my primary doctor. In 2009, my Bride of 44 years was hospitalized and tests confirmed cancer in multiple areas. The manner in which Dr. 'V' informed us was very caring, as was follow-on office chemo treatments. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. Appropriate Oncology care now on a maintenance level.

I went to have my bone marrow biopsy and it was a horrifying experience. I had no idea she would be giving it to me Not only did she not wait for the numbing medication to activate, her bedside manner was horrible and the way she addressed her staff in front of me was AWFUL. She was obviously in a hurry and I was in so so much pain. After 2.5 weeks, I could still feel pain at the site. Only use Dr. Wang. Patient and Kind. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone. 1 star is being nice.

The experience with this office is horrible. I do not recommend this medical office to anyone., go to the Clinton, MD location. Tami, the scheduler, is very rude, and so is the whole office! Tried to make an appointment, and kept getting put on hold, then they told me someone will have to call me back. What? Never again.
Greenbelt, MD |
VERY POOR! My PCP recommended Dr. Venkatraman and I just told her that she should not refer any more patients. Every appointment has at least 1 hour wait time and once the doctor goes into the room, she rushes thru the appointment and gets irritated when asked questions. She gave me a diagnosis before the computer booted up. Then it changed after she accessed my information and my name. The office manager is very unprofessional. The way this office operates is a reflection of the doctor.
