Dr Ramasamy is an excellent pain management specialist. He is incredibly knowledgeable about how his patients are suffering, and extremely gifted in providing the precise relief needed. Dr Ramasamy is a very skilled, compassionate, caring, doctor, with a gentle, steady hand. He will answer questions and explain procedures patiently and cheerfully. His nurses and office staff are very friendly and accommodating. Except for your reason for seeking Dr Ramasamy help, you might even look forward to your office visit. LOL. I have been under Dr Ramasamy's care for over 10 years, and my pain levels have been kept in check, and I have had a much better quality of life. I highly recommend this doctor without any reservations whatsoever.
