Cyndi d. – May 05, 2021
I have been seeing Dr Ratzman for a couple years now. From day one he has been so patient and listens. I have a rare spine disease and he does everything possible to look for other things to do to try to help me. He goes into a conversation with me knowing that he’s GOING to help me and get me out of pain. He has done 2 surgeries on my back and even tho my response to them has been different than normal he is still there for me and hadn’t given up. He is a great doctor that I feel has a heart of gold. I’m glad I was referred to him. I recommend him to anyone that needs a good pain doctor.

I went to office for opinion. He listened to me but didn't hear me. He failed to get back with me for follow up appointment and it's been from spring 2019 to November 2019.

I was referred to Dr Ratzman after suffering horrible chronic headaches. After I had a brain tumor removed 2 weeks post surgery I started experiencing the worst headaches known to man. They would wake me up in the middle of the night

I really like Dr. Ratzman. He takes the time to listen and understand what is going on with his patients. He tries to offer solutions when other doctors are out of options.

This physician and staff is never on time. I waited 90 minutes to see him and then he spent less than 5 minutes with me. Saw him in Greenfield and the staff was not there and ready to accept patients at 1230 pm. Not a very good impression. Appears disorganized. After I sat for 45 minutes in the waiting room, they realized I had to complete a follow up form. Really? Should have seen that when I checked in and why I was there. Not impressed, esp since he is a Indianapolis Top Doctor. Sad.

He's arrogant and treats the nursing staff at the surgery center, when I got a shot, like second class citizens. His office staff was just plain rude. I'm not surprised.....birds of a feather........

Indianapolis, IN – Dec 09, 2017
He is a pleasant man. But I do not think he was thorough. He was unaware of my therapists report that I fell during therapy. So, he had not read the report. He was to quick to offer I high priced shot on only the second visit. And he did not examine me after the fall. Just took my word for it and ordered an x-Ray. Not thorough. Too quick to offer shot. Did not offer alternative v
