Everyone was courteous, professional and very helpful. I had a Watchman device which let me get off of blood thinners for life. I feel great and Dr. Ramjee has taken great care of me through the entire process.

I met Dr. Ramjee in the hospital and he was so nice. He saw me in the clinic a few times and diagnosed me with severe blockages. I had heart bypass surgery and have feel a lot better. My entire experience with Dr. Ramjee and his team has been nothing short of wonderful. I strongly recommend him to family and friends of mine.

I met Dr. Ramjee in Spring of this year when I was admitted to the hospital quite sick. I had several new cardiac problems including severe aortic stenosis, and end stage heart failure. He took amazing care of me, figured out what the problem was and got me fixed up. 8 months later, I feel like a new man -I have a brand new aortic valve and my heart is functioning normally! I am so happy with his care and the Heart Institute
