in Sulphur Springs, TX |
Dr. Ramanath found my collapsed iliac veins and for the first time in years I am pain free. He and his staff are very caring and thorough. I would highly recommend him.
in Frisco, TX |
I never expected to have a heart attack, it was the last thing I thought I was vulnerable to. Because of Dr Ramanath I am alive today. The care after the initial care has been outstanding. What more can I say than I owe my life to him!
in Dallas, TX |
I trusted Dr. Ramanath with life altering decisions and would again, should the need arise again, I will do so again. His nurse Amber is awesome with any and all requests.
in Addison, TX |
Dr. Ramanath is thorough, very caring, more than competent and patient. He never seems rushed. Always answers my questions. And I believe he truly cares about my health. I couldn't be happier.
in Frisco, TX |
I was rushed in to Emergency Room for heart attack. I was blessed that day to get Dr. Ramanath. I died twice on the table but he brought me back. He is a caring and compassionate man and has a great sense of humor. I woke up to his smiling face. He is very educated and trustworthy. When you are in his office he takes whatever time is necessary with you. You never feel rushed- he acts like you are his only patient. He makes you feel great about yourself with such warmth.
in The Colony, TX |
Number ONE: look at his credentials. He's one of the smartest doctors in Dallas. He's also really humorist. How many other cardiologists can be so funny? Number TWO: No one can beat him. He's brilliant and honestly I fully trust him with my life! Mickey Grant
in McKinney, TX |
The overall experience with Dr. Ramanath and the entire office has been very positive. He is very kind and caring plus takes time to listen. I was really blown away when he called me a couple of days after a procedure to see how I was doing. I think that is incredible in this day and time. I would strongly recommend him.
in Dallas, TX |
I'd been to 3 different cardiologists before Dr. Ramanath treated me on an emergency room visit (chest pains). None of them gave me the comfort level that someone with heart issues should expect. In the hospital and on a followup visit at his office, Dr, Ramanath was very attentive to my concerns, answered my questions, and, in general, gave me that comfort level I'm pleased to call him my cardiologist.
in Denton, TX |
Dr. Ramanath is very easy to work with and is triple board certified. One of the best doctors you will find.
in Plano, TX |
I would highly recommend Dr Ramanath. He did procedures on both my legs in Dec.2015 and Dec 2016. (varicose veins of lower extremities) His office staff is very professional. Dr. Ramanath explains excatly how the did the procedure would be done. His technician and assist amber were both outstanding.
Plano, TX |
One of the most patient friendly Drs. I have ever met. Visited me every day while in the hospital for lung cancer. Brought down my blood pressure and detected heart fibrillations early and brought it under control. Explains problems in detail and is easy to understand. I highly recommend this doctor to anyone.
