When I found Dr. Ramtekkar 5 years ago, my son was taking 8 different medications from his previous physician. Dr. Ramtekkar spent 3 month getting him off all but 2 of those meds. He has done a great job with my son getting him from a zombie to a real person with a wonderful personality. I would recommend this physician to anyone with a troubled child.

Highly recommend Dr. Ramtekkar! I have taken my second child who has severe ADHD to him for the past 3 years. We went to 3 doctors before him and did not care for them at all. Dr. Ramtekkar looked at all of him not just his ADHD. Through his suggestions we found he was anemic and has sleep apnea, both were also affecting his ADHD and mood. I now take my other kids to him also. Have really enjoyed working with him and the help he provides and bonus my kids really like him and trust him too.

Dr. Ramtekkar helped our family navigate anxiety and ADHD in our youngest son. I appreciate that his office is a safe, reliable environment, but I really love his sense of humor and the way he helps us sort through difficult issues. It's hard to get our son to open up, but he does because of his easy conversational manner. He is an excellent doctor.

My son Blake has autism, and a severe anxiety disorder. It is very hard for him to open up to people. we have been seeing Dr. Ramtekkar for 3 years. He has been able to break thru to my son to share his innermost feelings. Blake doesn't mind going to see him because he feels safe to share how he really is. I would highly recommend Dr. Ramtekkar for anybody searching for a psychiatrist who really gets to know their patient and wants to help them.

Very caring and takes time to listen, assess and interact with his patients and their families. I feel like no trip is wasted and our time is respected. He has diagnosed my son (we have seen multiple doctors, psychiatrist, psychologists, speech therapist in past...) within the first 15 minutes of our interactions at age 14. It is very sad to say that so many others could not pick up on the subtle cues that led to a breakthrough diagnosis for my son. HIGHLY recommend.

Really listens and asks questions about my son's situation. Allows time for parent questions too. Wants to be sure medication is effective and no unwanted side effects. Impressed by his concerned approach.
