Dr. Swetha Ramakrishnan is truly outstanding. During my over 30 years in the health care profession, I’ve worked with hundreds of physicians both civilian and military. Dr Rama’s remarkable effectiveness stems from her ability to combine top tier technical knowledge and skill, sincere caring for her patients, and treatment protocols designed to achieve the best possible outcome for her patients. Dr. Rama cured my serious condition and I feel very fortunate to be under her care.

I was referred to Dr. Ramakrishnan because I had a very painful fissure that possibly required surgery. After the exam she prescribed medications with specific instructions in an attempt to heal in lieu of surgery. I strictly followed her instructions to avoid surgery. After two days I started noticing an improvement. Slowly I healed and on my follow up appointment she cleared me to return back to work with no surgery needed. I wish she was closer to my hometown so I could have her do my colonoscopy. Dr. Ramakrishnan and her staff, Michelle, has great bed side manner. Dr. Ramakrishnan was patient and answered all my questions. I highly recommend her if you're in need of a Gastroenterologist.

I went through the most strenuous pain of my life,as a man. I decided, after my research of colorectal doctors , only Dr. Swaths RamaKrishana was the BEST. Her strategy,empathy and most importantly proficient was golden. Her strategy with the solace of her staff, Michelle processes: my paperwork to be off work, prescriptions and setup my surgery immediately. Her empathy, she was sporadically calling and checking on how I was doing. Her proficiency, my fissure needed a separate cut and stitches to extend from my lance or spasm at rectal in order to heal quickly. She was great! I would like to thank Dr. Swaths Ramakrishnan and her staff, Michelle. I'm 45 years old and I'm getting my colonoscopy with her. Highly Recommended

This Dr. is most certainly nice enough in her bedside manner. However, she leaves a lot to be desired in her clinical acumen. I came with severe digestion problems and had every test to rule out severe illness. All were negative yet discussion of colostomy as a worst care scenario was discussed b/c she has no other answers. It really scared me. Never once did she ask what/how I was eating. Long story short, my “balanced mediterranean diet” was the culprit. I went to another kind of doctor that identified this and now I’m completely symptom free and feel great. The idea never even crossed her mind as a possibly. Visits were rushed and this practice is a “patient-mill”. She may be a fine surgeon but thankfully I didn’t have to find out and have my colon cut out on the basis/justification that it just didn’t work properly for unknown reason. I spent so much money and time on different medicines, therapies and more only to find out that a dietary change was needed. This was traumatic!

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.

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!
