Dr. Rama, is always very compassionate and attentive. Before meeting her I was very nervous about my surgery, after my first consultation she made me feel very comfortable and made sure I understood everything. She is a great surgeon who really cares about her patients.

Dr. Rama has been thoughtful, attentive and thorough on each occasion that I've seen her. It's not the most pleasant exam, but somehow she finds a way to make her patients feel comfortable despite the situation!

Dr. "Rama" is so approachable, warm and friendly. Before my surgery, she was very thorough, gave me the facts without "sugar coating" anything, yet made the office visits before surgery very pleasant. I hope I don't have to see her again, but if the medical issues dictate, I'll go to her!

Dr. Swetha K Ramakrishnan was kind and listened to my symptoms and gave me some easy to implement solutions. My symptoms cleared up in a few days. I had been struggling with pain for years and thought I would just have to deal with it. Dr. Ramakrishnan was so knowledgeable and helped me identify a fix for all of my issues while also answering many many of my questions. I also appreciate that she was really understanding.

Dr. Rama is the best! She was able to provide the help I needed to control a digestive problem that has existed for many years. She also created an environment that made me feel comfortable while being examined and treated. In addition, staff members were extremely friendly, organized and attentive.

Dr Ramakrishnan makes me feel very comfortable and relaxed and takes the time to explain everything and answer my questions. She never seems rushed, which is so unusual for a doctor today. She is also a "less is more" doctor, which I appreciate. She is not looking to do any unnecessary procedures. She is also very knowledgeable and bright. I have great confidence in her abilities as a physician and trust her opinion.

Without any previous symptoms, I perforated my intestine and developed peritonitis. I was rushed to Piedmont Hospital. When they evaluated my symptoms, I was blessed to get Dr. Ramakrishnan. She answered all of my family's questions and kept them updated. I ended up having a six hour surgery and had to have a colostomy. Because I had developed sepsis, I was in the hospital for more than a month and she came in every day and most days twice a day. I can't recommend her enough!
