I saw this doctor at the hospital in the Emergency Department. The Emergency physician had paged him to quickly come see me for my diabetic foot infection as they thought I was going into septic shock. The nurses were giving me intravenous antibiotics and as I waited in the IV room, another patient could see drainage from my dressing and told me that I better see Dr. Ravji quick. The other fellow said he was the best around, graduated from the Limb Salvage Centre at Yale University and is known for trying to save feet from infection. Apparently this other guy had a similar issue and his foot was saved and he was getting antibiotics to suppress any remaining infection in his system. Suffice to say I met Dr. Ravji in the Emergency and he explained the condition to me (necrotic foot infection or something) and he urgently booked my surgery, planned my admission, spoke with the medicine doctor, spoke to the nurses, etc. He worked on my foot for ages and saved as much as he could. Today I can walk because of him. He got rid of the infection, took me back for a closure surgery, and allowed me to stay mobile. Just like the other writer on this site said, "Thanks Dr. Ravji"
What kind of podiatrist orders orthodics without seeing xrays not once but twice. The second time was reordered by Rhumatologist as they were inadequate and the condition of my feet is much more than arthritis. He didn't even see the xrays prior to ordering . I can't walk or drive far because of severity and tried to make an appt and said my case is closed? What a quack...now am searching for the best surgeon around. The condition of my feet is not common so just admit my case is more complex and you can't fix and direct me to someone who can. Your compassion and kindness isn't going to make me walk...not surprised though...he works out of a medicentre.
I waited over 1 year for a MRI on my foot, after the result Dr. Ravji told me there is nothing wrong with my foot and he couldn't help me. I still can't walk properly and I am in constant pain. I would not recommend this doctor.
Dr Ravji has been INCREDIBLE! This man has amazing patience, compassion and isn't quick to diagnose. I was sent for numerous tests and even a second opinion just so he was sure he was right. Soon I go for my surgery and he has prepared me for the next few months. He has also prepared my husband on what to expect. I wish he was a general practitioner. Lol. He has put my mind at ease and told me everything I should know. He has called me at home, to get an appt booked and a walking cast. Dr Ravji, I commend you and your professional ethics. Doctors should learn from you. Thank you for helping me. Mandy G.
Very knowledgable and caring. Made me feel at ease for my hammertoe procedure. Called me at home nte after surgery to check on me and good follow up after that. Very satisfied with him and the surgery.
My operation with Ravji was bumped up by 6 months and I was only given a weeks notice. Thinking I should only lose a week from work I wasnt worried and went for it, even though my gut reaction was to run. I wasnt informed the operation didnt go as expected and ended up losing a couple months of my life. I felt like I was just a number and not given the proper knowledge to heal properly. I was unlucky enough to get all rookie nurses at every medicenter he works through. The IV caused damage in my hand that took 5 weeks to heal and after the operation my stitches were removed too early and because of that I wasnt healing at the pace expected. Almost 6 months later and I am still recovering and the whole experience has really changed me as a person. I am not saying he isnt a good doctor but I personally had a bad experience.
Doctor Ravji, completed a bunionectomy on my left foot at the Lamont Health Centre, the Doctor was amazing, caring and very helpful. His staff were also very helpful and made me very comfortable. Excellent pre-op and post op care. It's not often the Doctors call you personally and the staff to make sure you are feeling ok and there are no complications. Very impressed with his care and would recommend him to anyone...
He is very knowledgeable, and explained what procedures are available to me. I had two ingrown big toe nails, and he very calmly explained what happens, and what will happen if we don't take care of it right away. The day came where the nails were to be cut out, and after telling him about my extreme fear of needles, he had kept talking through the whole time i was getting them. The procedure was very fast and clean. He made sure i didn't wear constricting footwear and had a ride home (since i got doped up and my toes operated on). He even put me on the fast track list at his medicenter, in case i have any foot related problems, i don't have to wait. I would recommend him to anybody dealing with any issues with the feet.
I had both my big toenails removed by Dr.RAVJI and he operated so the nails would not regrow . I was very relaxed because he explained to me what he was doing step by step during the operation. I had no pain during and after the operation and healing process what-so-ever. After approx. two months a had shiny smooth skin nails. You cannot tell that i had an operation. I highly recommend him .Otto B.
