About Me

Care Philosophy

Hippocrates remarked, "It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has." I believe it is even better to know both the disease and the person. Excellence in healthcare is not only treating ...

What People Say About Dr. Venkatraman Sadanand, MD
Reply
We went in for a consulatation for my 6month old son . Dr. Sadinand was short and dismissive. He scheduled scans for 3 months later and another 2 months til he gave us the results. While giving us results he told us surgery is needed but told us he is taking the rest of the year off for vacation so early January was the earliest (this was in september). January finally comes around and we get a call from the office saying Sadinand no longer WANTS to do surgeries and we need a new Dr!
