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 has always been a very good listener when I explain any problems I'm having. This is very important though not all medical professionals realize this. I would definitely recommend him to others!
