Dr. Ram is cool. I was referred to him by a gastro enterologist who said I needed a colonectomy. Dr. Ram said, don't worry, I'll get the rest of the polyps out, and he did. I have seen him twice since and he has not changed in his outlook and demeanor. I cannot sing his praises enough.

Dr. Ram is a gifted surgeon. He performed an APR surgery on me in 2015 for a very rare melanoma cancer. It is a huge surgery and I came through extremely well thanks to Dr. Ram's care. Just amazing! Highly recommend this doctor.
