Saw Dr. Ramachandran for an injury to my hand from over a year ago. Pain and complications persisting. She did a thorough exam, was very gentle & efficient, listened to my history and concerns. I felt confident in her conclusions and further recommended testing to get to the bottom of my issues.

I have seen Dr. Ramachandran twice and both experiences have been excellent!! She is very personable, communicates well and takes time to explain what she is doing and why. Her caring attitude and expertise in diagnosis and treatment will keep me returning to her as needed.

I was very concerned when I didn't know what was going to happen and how it was going to happen. Dr Ramachandran reassured me and explained the different senerios based on my situation; what could and could not happen and what the next steps were in either case. I was very pleased with her office, demeanor, and staff and of course the surgery itself. I would recommend her to anyone with the care she provided for me. Thank you!

Worst doctor I have ever had!!! She only spends a few minutes with you and doesn't ask if you are in pain or how you are feeling. Gives conflicting information with each follow up visit. She doesn't care about her patients and is very bad at describing how your injury or procedure with heal. Office staff is even worse, they are horrible. Can't get information or return phone calls. They make you pay any unpaid insurance balance before they will see you even if it is not due yet.
