    Dr Ramar performed gallbladder removal surgery on me. The process from being referred to Dr Ramar to the surgery day was very quick and efficient (2weeks). Dr Ramar explained the risks and benefits of the procedure very clearly and was very patient in answering all my questions. Dr Ramar was calm and reassurance on the day of the surgery and alleviated all my fears. Dr Ramar was very accessible pre and post surgery. The 6 week check-up went very well. No complications with the procedure and I’m grateful that I can eat without any pain. I would highly recommend Dr Ramar to family and friends.

    Dr Rama made me feel like I was important to him and not just another patient. He took the time to listen and guide me through several procedures. I felt safe and cared for but at the same time he was honest and didn’t make give me false hope. You can feel how passionate he is about what he does and has a genuine passion for helping people with weight problems. I am absolutely honoured to have fallen into his hands and he has given me the motivation to do everything right with my Gastric Bypass just to show him his belief in me was worth it.
