28/10/10 4 4 3 3 My father liked Dr. Ramakrishna very much but he needed to have a checkup. He had been with Dr. Ramakrishna around 2 years. After 2 years and no checkup - just chats about individual symptoms, my mom made him ask for a thorough checkup. Finally they got one scheduled but unfortunately dad died a few days before the checkup.  Respond

09/09/08 5 5 5 5 If you think he isn't listening or that he isn't a good doctor, then you really must not be a good patient. He has been my doctor while in Whitby and I appreciate his work so much that I now travel to Hamilton to see him.  Respond

11/08/08 5 4 5 5 Very Good Doctor. He is test happy though, which I guess can be a good thing. I always tell him what is wrong and if I know the treatment I want I let him know and he gives it to me. He also always refers me to the specialists that I request. Excellent Listening skills, A VERY nice man!  Respond

14/05/07 2 2 2 His listening skills where nonexistant and did not address the physical problems address to him. My husband sat with him and told him all his physical ailments while Ramakrishna was writing in a file, saying he could listen. Finished writing, thanked my husband for coming, told him he was fine. None of the disk/pain/heart issues were addressed, medication ect. as I'd made my husband write down a list that time and he left very confused. He was my dr. for 8 years, never checked my blood pressure. I now have new dr. and pills to control my blood pressure.  Respond
