    I found Dr Ram really polite and a great listener. His diagnosis and prescribed treatment has changed my life. He was recommended by my GP and I am delighted with the results of my referral. I would encourage anyone requiring a gastroenterologist to search him out.

    I have been referred to Dr Ramakrisnan about 9 years ago after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, and can’t praise him enough. I foumf Dr Ram to be an absolute gentleman, caring, a dedicated and very skilled professional. He always has time to talk about my issues in depth and is open to looking at new ways of dealing with them. I can’t speak highly enough of the support that he has given me.

    I was referred to Dr Ram with severe stomach pains. His approach to diagnosis was systematic and clearly explained to me. During the investigative procedures undertaken by Dr Ram I found his caring approach and professionalism reassuring. Again, his explanations regarding his findings, his diagnosis and recommended treatment were all carefully explained to me and I was given every opportunity to ask questions. I cannot recommend his professionalism, skills and approachability enough.

    I have been seeing Dr Ramakrishnan now for about 5 years and couldn't be happier with the care and help I have received, I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to my health and hospital appointments but I feel completely comfortable and confident in the service I receive from him and am very happy with the progress I have made in my health over the past few years with his help.
