My husband has Stage IV lung cancer which has metastasized to his brain. Dr. Ramakrishna has been monitoring it for the past 6 months and is always available for any questions we might have. He has been very reassutring and and gets back to us quickly after each MRI. He is in contact with the oncologist to decide on the best protocol to follow and we respect his opinion on the course of action completely. We would recommend him to anyone in our situation.

Dr. Ramakrishna performed a surgery to remove brain tumor. The surgery was success. The post surgery visit also went very well. The doctor took time to explain me the problem and why surgery is needed. He also took time to answer all my questions.

I have been just diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer with metastases to the brain. Met with Dr. Ramakrishna for the first time last week and he was very optimistic about doing stereostatic radiation on the lesions. Explained his part in the protocol and answered all our questions patiently. Felt very confident in having him as part of my “team” in dealing with my situation and very hopeful for a successful outcome.

My annual visit was after an MRI to determine if my acoustic neuroma had regrown. It hadn't. Dr Ramakrishna put my fears to rest and listened to any concerns I had about my recovery.

Dr. Ramakrishna is the true definition of a doctor. He cares and takes time to really listen to his patients. There was not a moment before or after surgery where I did not feel safe in his more than capable hands.

From beginning to End Dr. Ramakrishna was professional and caring. In addition, he is knowledgeable and answers questions in a way that is clear and understandable (he takes his time to explain and be understood). The actual surgery and its success is the most important thing, of course.. and that's where he did a great job as well. We are thankful for doctors who are good and who care.
