11/01/13 5 5 5 5 I have been seeing Dr Ram for 33 years. She delivered my 2 children by c-section with perfection! They are now 29 and 17 years old. Dr. Ram found the beginning stages of cervical cancer and I had a hysterectomy 15 years ago again with no complications. I have only felt compassion and respect from Dr Ram and her staff and I have always been grateful and feel blessed to have her as my doctor. Years ago when I lived in Florida, I would come back to NJ for my yearly check-up, I have never been to another OBGYN doctor. Dr Ram is a special woman who dedicates her life to help us keep ourselves healthy and many of us were lucky to have her bring our children into this world. Thank you Dr. Ram and staff!!

22/10/12 4 4 4 5 I visited Dr. Ram 5 months back and that visit was free for me NO CO-PAY :), since that was my 2nd visit within 6 months. I will be visiting her again on Wednesday and all the previous 2 visits were good for me. One thing keeps worrying me that entertains no more deliveries so thinking whether I should change now or keep going ?

04/06/12 3 5 5 5 Dr Ram is the BEST Gynecologist I ever had and she's the only doctor I retained in the Middlesex County area. I don't mind seeing her once a year for appointment. I'm very happy to have found her in Edison, NJ when I used to live there. I will not replace her for anybody in Passaic County, where I now live.

24/05/12 1 5 5 5 SHE IS A GREAT DOCTOR.. BUT HER RECEPTIONIST NEEDS TO LEARN A LESSON OR TWO!! I am new for Gynos and all you ladies out there know how hard it is the first time you go to a Gyno. The receptionist at her office is so rude! I needed advice on some BC pills I was going on and needed the precription sent. She was just pure rude. If I stop going to Dr. Ram it is because of the unintelligent receptionist she hired.. the biggest idiot.

12/10/11 5 4 5 5 I have been seeing Dr. Ram for 20 years and she is always very professional and very knowledgeable. She always veers towards the side of precaution but also takes a wait and see attitude before determining if anything more serious needs to be done, e.g., surgery. I highly recommend her.

09/09/10 5 5 5 5 I've been seeing Dr. Ram for about 20 years now and I have to say she's the best OBGYN in the world. She is very knowledgeable, has patience and makes me feel so good about myself. She takes the time to answer each and every question I have and really cares about my health. I was referred to her by a friend and been seeing her ever since. I loved Dr. Ram's service so much that I referred my mom to her as well. My mom said she the best OBGYN ever! I couldn't agree with her more. For those who made comments about the long wait I just have to say you get what you pay for and good things come to those who wait. Patience is a virtue. When you have a great OBGYN as Dr. Ram it's worth the wait.

12/05/09 5 5 5 5 I have been going to Dr Ram for 14+ yrs, she delivered my oldest son who is now 13+. She wasnt on my insurance for son #2 and OMG what a DIFFERENCE!!! She gets so much respect from hospital staff in JFK, she is v. respected in her profession. I went to another OB for #2 son and she WAS HORRIBLE, WAIT TIMES 1+ HRS AND NO RESPECT FROM HOSPITAL STAFF, infact I was ignored! Dr Ram I have NEVER had an issue with waiting for more than 10 mins, unless she had a delivery, then what can you do? Parking at her office can be difficult depending on time of day, but her staff she keeps the same staff, Cindy knows ALOT and is always GREAT, they work with you on copays etc. She had Holly who was GREAT but now she has a Latin lady who isn't that friendly or efficient lab person. Dr Ram is EXCELLENT....Now she only does Gyn, not OB...I believe - 2009. She is open minded away from conventional gyn path if you ask her, she says, sure try it....excellent doctor.

06/02/08 5 4 5 5 Please give Dr. Ram a break. Even a president would not mind waiting for 20 minutes at the Dr. office. How can you forget the stress from Traffic in North Jersey? since when did service at the Dr. office become more of an issue than how knowledgeable your Doctor is?  Respond

15/12/07 4 3 4 4 This is the deal with Dr. Ram -- yes she is a bit sarcastic upon responding to questions as one reviewer commented, and yes she can have a way of making you feel as though she is tired of her job, but this is the reality -- she has been a doctor for so many years and has been dealing with patients for such a long time, hearing the same questions over and over --Give the sister a break! She is a knowledgeable doctor who delivers a baby like you would drink a glass of water -- effortlessly! She knows what she is doing, which is the important thing! Yes, she may be a bit burned out, but a doctor's life is stressful in case you haven't noticed! Honestly, I had my doubts about her at first, but decided to stick with her because of the convenience of her location, considering that I didn't doubt her knowledge and professionalism. I was privileged to have her deliver my baby, perform an episiotomy on me and sew me up. She did a fantastic job!

14/09/07 3 3 3 3 Dr.Ram.. Waiting is a long time like 20 mins or so, i have waited outside couple of times for 20 mins or so and after calling inside to the room an other 15-10 mins waiting. Forget it... but Dr.Ram mostly makes me really feel she's always in a hurry, she won't make me comfortable in asking her questions & mostly answers in a very sarcastic way. She does her job but , i think if she's too tired to do the job QUIT & please do not make the patient uncomfortable and upset.
