What People Say About Dr. Sanjay Ramakumar, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Reply
I never got to meet the doctor. I called the office with a self referral because my primary care had just moved out of the area. The earliest appointment I could get was a month later. I took the appointment. Because I work out of town I had to miss an entire day of work and spend over $200 to change my airline reservation. Then I get to the appointment and was told that I couldn't see the doctor because I didn't have a referral. First of all, so what? I have been to a lot of doctors without a referral. Second, they knw this when I booked the appointment and said nothing. I wasted over a month, $200, and didn't even see the doctor. What a bunch of incompetents.

I had a tumor on my right kidney. Dr Ramkumar operated on me, removed the tumor without complications using the Da Vinchi robotic device. . I checked into the hospital one morning and walked out the next day. I have checked out clean for kidney cancer the past two years. I could no ask for more.

Dr. Ramakumar was very friendly, thorough, answer all of my questions. I am extremely satisfied with all aspects of his office, staff, and advice. He makes you feel very comfortable. He performed a robotic proctectomy and it all went excellent.

I had a tumor on my right kidney and my primary didn’t know if a urologist or a nephrologist should take care of it. They finally decided to send me to Dr. Ramakumar And he was kind and sweet and respected my religious choice to not accept blood. Couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Ramakumar.

Had a vasectomy done with Dr. Ramakumar that was executed perfectly smooth. He's very informative while keeping a calming demeanor through the whole process. Highly commendable! Only issue is setting up an appointment. It took a few months for the initial consultation, which is typical with doctors in high demand.

Dr. Ramakumar treated me a few years ago for Prostate cancer using a new technique to him, called Robotic radical prostatectomy. He apparently was not competent in it since he left me with incontinence and impotence. Too doctors don't get checked out before they are allowed to use them. Stay away from him!

Dr Ramakumar is a superb surgeon and a warm and caring human being. He is one of the top surgeons in the country and has assembled an entire team of excellent individuals who assist him. He has performed nearly 900 successful prostatectomies with excellent patient outcomes. Perhaps the best recommendations come from the opinions the people who work around him. Everyone from the receptionist to the nurses and technicians on the wards held him in highest regard. Truly a remarkable human being.

After receiving a diagnosis of prostrate cancer, I began a search for the best Da Venci robotic system Doctor in Tucson and ultimately chose Dr. Ramakumar. He removed my prostrate on a Thursday and the catheter six days later. I had very little discomfort after the surgery. In our first post-0pt meeting he provided me with the biopsy results, final gleeson score and initial thoughts for future care. He is wonderful person and takes the time to answer all my questions. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Ramakumar is the best urologist I have ever seen. He is professional, very knowledgeable and extremely patient oriented. He works with the patient to ensure a comfortable and effective plan. He is open minded regarding additional therapies such as physical therapy. The two surgeries he performed on me both went extremely well. I have recommended numerous friends to him.
