First, Ramachandran is a referral Surgeon. He doesn't do exams or consider what else might me causing the pain. He does what he's told to do by other Doctors. Then even when he's in there, doing surgery, he's not looking at what else might be wrong, he's just doin what he was told to do.

Most horrific experience I've ever had in my life was with Ramachandran. Don't let his Diplomas and cuteness fool you. Laziest Doctor I've ever met and he doesn't do examinations.

My experience with Dr Ravi was enlightening. He made me feel very comfortable and reassured about having surgery. After reading his bio I’m very confident in his abilities. He’s very charming, well spoken and VERY easy on the eyes. Will update after upcoming surgery
