    I found Dr Ramesh to be approachable, yet professional at all times. I did not completely appreciate the full length of recovery time after hammertoe surgery, but that may be down to me, not him. I was always able to ask follow up questions through his secretary and received answers by return. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Ramesh to others, & would go to him again should the need arise.
