Merced, CA |
She is always in a hurry and talks way more than she listens. Takes months to get appointments and appointments are constantly being canceled by her and then have to wait 2-3 months again before being seen or for follow ups. Take numerous calls to get prescriptions refilled, to get copies of lab results, or anything other information that is needed. 2 years and she still has not taken the time to learn my history or work on my issue. She is always in a rush and never finishes answering questions

Personally she is a great doctor. She listens and looks to find deeper reasonings for sickness however, the wait to see her is beyond ridiculous. She is always behind, or off. Her schedule to see patients is months. Yes, Months as in 2-3 months. The only way to see her within weeks is to first go the the E.R and then follow up with Ramaa because the E.R. Doc says so. If you want a doc who listens, and is willing to wait out your sickness, she is great. If you are sick often, don't bother.

Dr. Ramma's ( Maruthachalam) first name works best for me. How often do you find a physician like her? Sometimes perhaps. Dr. Ramma has a great personality, is truly caring, has a great staff, especially Martha and Carlos along with the front office. You will appreciate her personality as well as her knowledge. I've been with her many years, and look forward to seeing her each time. Make an appointment with her and you will see.
