    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.
