Care Philosophy

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."

Patient Comments (2)
in Benson, NC |
It took a lot of patience and research to find the right doctor and the right equipment to obtain the results I was looking for. I came across Dr. Ramaraj on real self and I contacted his office immediately to ask about removing or sclerotherapy on the vein. I was educated over the telephone that the best course of treatment would be laser therapy . Dr. Ramaraj was so kind and compassionate and gave me a realistic expectation. Thanks to him the veins in my legs are completely gone
in Fayetteville, NC |
I would recommend him. I was hospitalized at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with chest pains in August 2014. Dr. Ramaraj, a partner to my Cardiologist, was assigned to me. He was personable, courteous, caring and put me at ease. He was thorough and made me feel comfortable & that he was qualified to perform the procedure, despite the fact that I had just met him. The office and examining rooms were always clean, the staff friendly & wait time acceptable.
