My experience at Park Pediatrics was terrible. I have twin 5-year old boys and when my wife and I arrived for the appointment, we were told only one parent could attend. We have TWO kids, with TWO separate appointments - we requested 2 rooms and one parent would represent each child. We were told that this can't happen, the appointments are combined because they are in the same family, and because of COVID. There is no explanation for combining appointments other than "because of COVID." I will NEVER back to this practice.

5 years ago Dr. Ram walked into my room at the Hospital to check in on my newborn son and I loved him ever since. He now sees my son and 2 daughters. Dr. Ram is very personable and remembers everything about my 3 children from their previous visit to him through the silly stories I share with him about them. He also refers to them by their nicknames which makes them feel very comfortable. Dr. Ram always leaves me feeling reassured with the children and any health concerns I have had in the past. He has even personally called or had a nurse call to follow up after visits that were concerning and after a hospital stay one of my children had had. He takes the time to explain things to me and help me weigh pros and cons of different things. He is very knowledgeable. Dr. Ram is very calm mannered and gentle with the children. I also like that he takes the time to explain to them what he is doing and why before he does it and while so that they understand and are calm at their visits. Overal

Dr Ram is an amazing provider, not only he is kind and knowledgeable but he is willing to go that extra miles to make parent and child conformable about the care. My child was scared to go to the doctor, Dr Ram took the time to interact with her, made her feel comfortable in the environment before he started to examine her. Dr. Ram was there for us as new parents that had numerous questions and concerns, he never rushed care. We moved from Novi and now we drive 30-40 minutes just to see him when my child is sick. I will recommend Dr. Ram to anyone that is looking for a good pediatrician.

I am not regular negative feedback blogger but BEWARE of this provider, they do incorrect claims to insurance company and force you to pay everything when claim is not covered by your insurance. I don't really know why do I need to give this 1 star atleast. I never seen a provider applying a double co-pay for single visit when the purpose of the visit itself is not completely done and was a simple thing but considered as a procedure. I can't mention the complete scenario here but this was handled with a pure business mind by the provider. When I reached the billing department for clarification, they threatened me saying If you don't agree to pay we will send this case to collections agency. Now you decide whether you really want to prefer these guys. These guys in Novi are big looters of your insurance and your pocket so becareful..

Dr Ram is the most amazing doctor. He has been so outstanding through both good and bad times with my children.He has made such an impression on my son that he always tells me Dr. Ram is his hero and when he grows up he wants to be a doctor. He answers all of my questions even if they may seem silly. I highly recommend him!

I don't know about others, but he bluntly pausing us when wife is trying to describe my kid's symptom, and making absurd call on the xray results even though the xray technician told me the complete opposite. Very assertive and rude and offers dishonest diagnose, will avoid next time.

My wife and I have very high standards when it comes to the doctors we select for our family. It took us a long time to find Dr. Ram, and we couldn't be happier. I have a medical science doctorate, and know a lot about medicine and medical research. Dr. Ram sits with us and answer all of my questions (down to mechanism) without trying to rush us out of the office like many do. He is very intelligent and stays up to date on current literature and studies. Most importantly, my kids love him!
