Patient Comments (8)
in Houston, TX |
Went in for abdominal diacomfort and constipation with unknown causes. He has piss poor bedside manner. He asked me a bunch of unnecessary question and disregarded my family hx of endometriosis that I advised him of multiple times. He never physically examined me, never touch my belly nor listen with the stethoscope. Pushed samples on me and asked that I call back with results. After 3 months of this I ended up in ER where I was dx with Ovarian Cancer. This could have been caught months ago.
Rockwall, TX |
Awful bedside manners, has no tact, no compassion for the patients psychological state of mind, calls them fat and does not follow up with the patients.
Houston, TX |
Very disappointed, will look for another Dr. for sure not going back to see him.

Very pleased with my experience w/ Dr Ramesh. He personally returned my calls to his office to clarify procedures regarding a routine colonoscopy. Was very informative, professional and personable, both on the phone and in person. Will happily refer him to others.
in Houston, TX |
I went to see Dr. Ramesh about Celiac disease testing and getting a colonoscopy. During my visit, it became evident that I knew more about Celiacs than Dr. Ramesh. After the colonoscopy, it took over 2 months to get my results back and when I did, they didn't even mention anything about Celiacs and forgot that was the reason for the colonoscopy. I should have been eating gluten to confirm the disease, but I was not told to. Due to this, I wasted thousands of dollars for an unconfirmed test!!
Houston, TX |
Difficult, if not impossible to communicate with. Tells me one thing and then when I have problems, blames me for misunderstanding him. He says similar things to my daughter. I am looking for another gastrointerologest!!!! Don't use him.
Katy, TX |
Had severe stomach pains and all he did was guess at what he could be he did nothing to figure out what the problem was. Due to this I ended up in the emergency room and when I went back and told him I had been to the emergency room he still did nothing, just made me schedule another pointless appointment. He even asked me what I though it was. I didn't know, I'm not the Dr you are. If I wanted to self diagnose I would use WebMD. My family members have had similar experiences. Do not use him.
in Houston, TX |
Dr Ramesh has performed 2 colonoscopies on me over 10 years. He is a very caring physician and highly experienced in his specialty. I am still his patient and recommend him highly.
