Dr. Ramanath is an excellent physician. He is very caring, with exceptional knowledge in his field. He has treated me since 2015 for cardiac disease, including putting in a stent in my heart, treating me for a heart attack, and cauterization of leg vein. He worked with surgeon for me to get a robotic heart bypass in 2017. With his excellent after surgery care, I have good coronary health today. I recommend him to anyone.

Dr Ramanath is excellent. I was having extreme pain in my legs and feet, primarily 1 side. After several Drs dismissed it as arthritis, a foot problem or possible pre-diabetes, he listened and asked alot of questions. He throughly explained what he suspected, ordered the appropriate tests and fixed it immediately. He is a very thorough, compassionate and empathetic. He also has a great bedside manner and a wonderful sense of humor. He might be the most intelligent person I've ever met. But he is easy to talk too and doesn't make you feel ignorant. He doesnt rush you. He also uses the portal very effectively. I appreciate that.

My 25 year old daughter was recommended by her thyroid dr to Dr. Ramanath because she had a very fast heartbeat. Dr. Ramanath said she had a mitral valve leak in heart and would need surgery to repair. It was a whirlwind of more Dr appointments, then surgery, then recovery, but through it all he was by our side and stopped by everyday she was in the hospital. He saved my daughters life and he was very informative, very compassionate and professional.

Dr. Ramanath is the best in my opinion. I thank him for saving my life 20 months ago. I had a five bypass surgery and recovered very fast. I now do landscaping work at 73 years old and some days push a mover for over 13 miles in 100 degree temperature. D Dr. Ramanath and his office staff are very thorough, kind and really care about your well being. Thank you Dr. Ramanath for being a friend, my doctor and always bringing your excellence. I really enjoy my visits to your office. Your the BEST!

Dr. Ramanath was recommended by a good friend. We went to see him and he was thorough, offered a variety of recommendations and kept a good eye on my situation. His nurse assistant is Amber and she is equally wonderful - responding to every request as soon as she has the chance. This will be a long term relationship as I have finally found a doctor that cares about me and my difficult situation.
