Dr. Ramkumar Sankaran, MD
I have been in practice in Avon for the last 16 years. I have been a solo practitioner for the last 5 years. I am available to see patients every day and also on 2 Saturdays a month in the morning. I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Nephrology. My focus is on preventing disease by lifestyle modification. I try to work with the patient with their philosophy of medical treatment.
