Doctor Rohan Ramakrishna is a Super Star Physician whom I’ve had the privilege of being operated on by and been completely cured of my brain tumor. His kind, friendly, knowledgable,confident, and professional approach let me know immediately he was the man for the job! I felt safe and secure in his care, so I put my faith and trust in his incredible abilities. What he was able to do for me was nothing short of a miracle, and I’m so grateful to Doctor Rohan Ramakrishna for changing my life for the better.

An outstanding surgeon, without peer, but in a field where "bedside manner" is often lacking, his style is both patient and caring. He gets to know the patient as a person, not just a physical carrier of a technical neurological challenge. He explains everything thoroughly and clearly. Would recommend him without reservation.

My experience with Dr. Ramakrishna was fantastic! I ended up in the hospital as an emergency patient but I felt like I was in very capable hands and Dr. Ramakrishna made me feel so safe, I knew everything was going to be OK which it was! Subsequently, his office staff were also extremely kind and professional, I highly recommend Dr. Ramakrishna should you need his services.

He made a rather unpleasant experience as comfortable as it possibly could have been. I felt totally at ease and confident in his abilities as soon as I met Dr Ramakrishna. He answered all of our questions without any air of arrogance whatsoever which is found in so many doctors and we did not feel rushed at all. Highly recommend.

Can’t thank Dr. Ramakrishnan and his staff enough. He is kind, thorough, well recommended by his peers and open to consultation. The surgery he performed on me led to a good recovery. I feel lucky to have had him operate when I read of other experiences with different hospitals. Thank you a million times over! surgery. I was told my meningioma was stuck to certain vessels, he got it all- success!!

Dr. Ramakrishns performed a complicated procedure to remove a high-grade glioma from my husband's brain. It could have left my husband with motor, speech, and memory deficits, but my husband was out of the hospital after three days post-surgery with minimal effects. We are unbelievably grateful.

As unpleasant as the surgery and everything attendant to it might have been, Dr. Ramakrishna and his staff made it all virtually painless. I can't say enough about how positive my experience was (and continues to be).

Dr. Ramakrishna was not only knowledgeable and professional, but compassionate. He gave me, and my family, the time we needed to understand my condition, the available options and his recommended approach. His bedside manner is a rare commodity in today's rushed medical community. I can not recommend him highly enough.

Dr. Ramakrishna is brilliant - but never pretentious or condescending, so I have never hesitated for one second to ask him any/all of my questions. He has followed my progress since my cranioplasty last year to the utmost and continues to so as needed and I would recommend him 100%. His office is excellent and he is amazing.

Dr. Ramakrishna and his staff were terrific and, in my view, went even beyond their call of duty in their care and treatment of my mom’s condition. Excellent service and professionalism with very fast response time. Would highly recommend.
