Dr. Raman's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Raman "Dr. Raman is board certified in both Family and Bariatric medicine. She entered medical school 1981. Completed her 4-year general surgery residency program in 1991 and supervised general surgery residents until 1994. Upon completion of her family practice residency in 1999, Dr. Raman benefited Cigna Healthcare and a privately owned chain of family medicine clinics until 2011. Dr. Raman then began operating what was known as Arizona Vista Family Medicine. 2016 was a banner year for Dr. Raman. She became a board certified Bariatrician and was welcomed into the Obesity Medicine Association. And, as-if she wasn't busy enough, she gave the business a complete makeover. With close to 36 years of medical experience, you can trust her to care for you and your family. She sees patients from 12 years old and up. Welcome to AVISTAmed. I'm looking forward to meeting you. ~ Dr. Raman"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Raman "At AVISTAmed - AVISTA Family Medicine & Weight Loss, your health is our passion. We believe you deserve a personalized health and wellness plan that begins with a personalized health screening and risk assessment and includes a comprehensive treatment, and preventative care plan.

The AVISTAmed Patient Portal

The industry of Medicine has changed and AVISTAmed has changed with it. In 2016 we took action in preparing for the next decade of family and bariatric medicine.

Playing a huge role in our recent changes is AVISTAmed's Patient Portal. Simple and allows patients to communicate with us, 24/7/365. AVISTA's patient portal is just one of the modern conveniences we've added to improve the overall patient experience.

Get comfortable in the new lobby. Not too comfortable though…wait times have been slashed."

AZ Vista Family is an amazing office. The staff and doctor very good at what they do and treat you with respect. Always helpful and willing to answer any questions I have even if silly. I have been going to this office even before Dr. Raman. She made a lot of nice changes to the office. Very good at what she does and listens to you.

I love Dr. Raman and her staff. While so many doctors are too busy to hear concerns, Dr. Raman listens. I also love the patient portal because I'm very busy.

I have been to see Dr. Raman several times. She is not a good doctor, her office wasn't ok, I called to change a RX the doctor gave me from 22 mgs to 15 mgs, not filled yet because of the cost. Linda says the doctor wants to see me.They didn't listen, started arguing with me, such unprofessional behavior. Insisted I had to make another appointment because I hadn't been in for 3 months. I'm not sick but Dr.requested All that was needed was to call Costco and change the mgs. Ramam is a RX pusher
The situation did not occur as Mr. Nelson claims. AVISTAmed has policies and procedures that are required to be followed. Mr. Nelson showed no concern for the way we conduct business, wanted his way and was disruptive in our office. Mr. Nelson should learn to act and behave as an adult or find another doctor.

Listened to my symptoms and asked questions related to my answers. Set up tests to explore possible causes. Discussed treatment choices for my osteoporosis. Seems very focused on duties - takes time with me, and concentrates on reason for visit. After hospital visit, helped adjust medication to reduce pain.

I brought up some issues I've been having and she abruptly interrupted me to inform me that we cannot discuss that right now, that I would need to schedule a different appointment at a later time to discuss. These are things I've never brought up to a Dr. or other people for that matter. To her this may be day in day out, but its not easy for the person with these issues to broach the subject, let alone be completely shut down by the one person they expected to trust.
Because this person cannot be identified it cannot be determined if he or she is an actual patient of Dr. Raman's or not. That said, medicine has changed requiring multiple appointments for multiple issues. You can't just come in once a year with an entire list of problems and expect one co-pay to cover it.
