My mother had a stoma reconstruction surgery. He sent her home same day only and then had to go back to the ER. MY mom had terrible paid and bag leakages several times a day as a result of his surgery. He did not care and spent no time with her. Had to go to Mayo 6 months later for the same surgery.

Unfortunately I was diagnosed with intestinal cancer. I was so scared. Dr. Ramanujan made the whole process a little less scary. He listened to what I had to say and about my pain management. Day of surgery he was confident and professional. Everything went very well. I was very pleased with the whole process. I highly recommend him and his associates to anyone.

NEVER RECOMMEND HIM TO SEE YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES! He told my grandfather his muscles were compressing his colon and directed him to Pain Management . Later we found out that he had a severe impaction and Olgilvies syndrome, and was in acute renal failure. None of which this doctor caught. My grandfather would have died if we didn't step in. He was rushed to the ER once he went dusky and couldn't breathe well on his own. This doctor is neglectful and absolutely has no business practicing.
