What People Say About Dr. Ratnakar Pernenkil, MD
Reply
He treated my mom in the hospital. Gave her 325mg aspirin and Plavix. I questioned him about this due to concerns of a GI bleed. He told me to let him be the doctor, not me. My mom ended up with 3 bleeding ulcers and was hospitalized again. Bad decision on his part.
