Dr. Ramachandra is excellent he is caring and compassionate . He took time away from his busy schedule to see me the same day I called . Him and his staff are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. He quickly diagnosed my medical issue and explained the procedure he performed from start to finish . He provided a direct number to call him 24 7 and took the time to see me early the next day for follow up He is one of the best Doctors in this area I would trust him with my life.A+++

Dr Ram is incredible! I am 5 years out and he still has time tosee me in the office to help me keep losing. I have had some re-gain BECAUSE I ATE THINGS I SHOULDN'T HAVE, and Dr Ram is helping me take it off again. He has never given up on me despite the setbacks of my own doing and some stagnation and plateaus. He is still helping me after all this time and he is the best ally and coach I've had. He is beyond compare!! If you feel hopeless about your largesse, run don't walk to Dr Ramachandra!
