Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ramaraj "A letter from professor of University of California, Los Angeles  mentions that

"Dr Ramaraj is an exceptionally gifted and accomplished clinician. He has exhibited tremendous clinical insight into the extent of our patients' presentations in cardiac and vascular health and also in all other facets of cardiovascular illness. His grasp of differential diagnoses is unerringly accurate and informed, and he was incisive in his approach to patient management, well beyond the realm of the average physician. His decision making showed exceptional acumen and he impressed our consultants and our patients alike.

He is polite and gracious and the patients felt confident they were in skilled hands under his care. He contributed an understanding of the etiology of our patients' diseases that spoke highly of his passion for independent pursuit of knowledge, as evidenced by his prodigious accomplishments in independent and original research prior to and during his fellowship.""
