Vairavan Ramesh Viswanathan, MD

Philosophy of Care

I believe that a great patient-physician relationship is a partnership; as my patient, you and I will work together to develop our communication. If you share your questions and concerns with me, I will make every effort to address them in a way that is approachable and easy to understand. I practice evidence based medicine, and leverage the latest technology to take care of my patients. I believe in screening and prevention, and I want you to be informed so that we can make good decisions together.

    Dr. Ramesh was great, especially for not ever seeing me before. He listened to all my concerns and followed up the next morning with my lab work that was completed the same day.
