What People Say About Dr. Ramin Sorkhi, MD

Hospitalized with severe abdominal pain, I was under the care of Dr. Sorkhi. Dr. Sorkhi performed laparoscopic surgery and successfully removed a perforated appendix. Dr. Sorkhi described the procedure, answered my questions, and suggested ways to speed recovery. I found him to be professionally competent and compassionate. I highly recommend Dr. Sorkhi for anyone undergoing gastroenterology surgery. In addition, his office and nursing staff were absolutely superb. Good job all, and thank you!

I had my colon surgery with Dr. Sorkhi. He is a very skilled surgeon and treats everyone as if they were family. If you need a surgeon, he is the one.

I was referred to Dr. Sorkhi for surgery to remove a Malignant Mass at the base of my Colon. He is a wonderful, caring and highly recommended dr. Surgery went well and I healed and recovered very quickly. Was also seen by him for a second surgery for the insertion of a Port a Cath for Chemotherapy treatments. That surgery went well and was done as an outpatient through the hospital. Thanks to all his staff who were also very helpful and caring.

I had bariatric surgery with Dr. Sorkhi in early July and my experience throughout the process was great. When I first met Dr. Sorkhi in January, he clearly explained the full process and all the pre-op steps. His nurse Margarita was extremely helpful and she did a great job keeping me updated. Making appointments with his office was better than most. I highly recommend Dr. Sorkhi and his office.

I was so appalled by how he treated his patients & how incompetent his office staff was. Sorkhi was condescending & insensitive. If you've been referred to him for bariatric surgery, RUN! Now I see that Sorkhi ordered many bogus pre-op tests, costing me over $1K & needlessly exposing me to excessive radiation. His staff consistently messed up, misinforming me numerous times. He offers no real pre/post-op education/support. He doesn't welcome questions and is not operating under current standards

Horrible patient care. Truly unbelievable. Will slice you open but after that your on your own, no after care to speak of. Even the surgery center staff was appalled when they called and found out that the doctor did not provide correct after care instructions and that I had no immediate follow up.

Dr. Sorkhi literally saved my life, not once, not twice, but three times in the last year. He performed my bi-lateral mastectomy in 2016, followed by a sigmoid colectomy and hernia repair in 2017 and was immediately there by my side to perform an emergency gall bladder removal a couple weeks later. Trust me, if you need a good general surgeon, he is everything and more! My life is forever improved by his surgical expertise and I would highly recommend him! His office staff is exceptional!
