All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

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

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.
