Dr. Raman is outstanding and very knowledgeable at what he does. I had a terrible superficial fungal infection of the skin in all my sweat area's along with a bacterial infection in some area's. All the other doctor's who have treated me in many years did nothing but feed the fungal infection. They treated the bacterial, but did little for the fungal but feed it and made it very worse. As far and I'm concerned this man helped save my life and rescued me from the horrific pain I was in!

Dr Raman acted as a disease consultant for when I was hospitalized with an infection. Even though tested for micoplasma, he continued to think I had valley fever until three tests showed I did not. My diagnosis was undetermined. I had a recuurent sinus infection when I followed up with him. He perscribed an antibiotic. When He found that I was allergic to the medication, he said to see him at my next appointment. I had no appointment. I ended up at UCLA late that night for treatment.
