Ratings for Dr. Warren Ramesh
I have to say dont judge before you go in yourself. I was going to cancel and somehow ask for another Dr just from reading other peoples' comments. I had a 9am appt, I waited 40 min before going into the room and then another 10 min there, then he took me into his office and spoke for 15 min. He asked me what had been going on. I explained to him my situation he took notes, asked me questions. Then explained to me my pft result and what they were looking for and what needs to be done next. After, he told me he was going to use his dictaphone, in the middle of it he was also asking me more questions. I'd say hes pretty knowledgeable and knows his stuff, as for punctuality I mean what Dr isnt late I guess. Some reviews where I read they wait for 2 hours and only talk to him for 5 min, that is unfortunate. Even after 15 min of me being there, there was another patient there to see Ramesh as well, so he will be behind all day now. As for me, it went okay.
Dr. Ramesh is a knowledgeable physician. That being said, he is the WORST at human interaction. He will dictate what he has to say to you into a dictaphone instead of speaking to you directly. He essentially writes the letter to your GP instead of taking the time to explain what the diagnosis is, leaving that work to the generally less knowledgeable Respiratory Therapists. If you are seeing him because of sleep issues, he will refer you to the clinic on the main floor of his building (Edmonton Sleep Institute) without giving you the documentation in hand so you can get second opinions, or pick a provider of your choice. He is also chronically tardy in his appointments. I usually try to get the first appointment of the day, and he regularly strolls into the office AT LEAST 15 minutes late if not more. Last time I saw him, he walked into the office 38 minutes late. I also had to wait 90 minutes in his waiting room for him to write me a new prescription (seeing as he sent the original one directly to his seller of choice of CPAP machines). Be weary of this doctor. Argue with him to make sure you understand everything he is telling you, and make sure he doesn't rush through your appointment without you understanding everything. If you can, see another doctor.
This Dr. is terrible. he rushes pt through. He has them come to appointments without having the results ready for him to review for the appointment. He is quick to answer questions with medical jargon and then takes not time to interact with pts. Hopefully you wont have to go to him.
Not very impressed!!! Have had many appointments for my elderly parent and each time we come here it is such a waste of time - we never get any information of the diagnosis. Paid for a sleep study and came in for results and they don't have them - now we wait in the waiting room ..... not impressed
Dr Ramesh is very knowledgeable in what he does. Very thorough with testing , was able to diagnose my problem and get me on the right treatment. Yes some times wait times are long but definitely worth it. His nurse was very helpful and genuinely concerned with the patients needs. Phone calls have always been returned. I would recommend this Dr to anyone who has lung issues!! Thank you for everything you have done for me.
To all the people that are not happy with Dr. Ramesh you need to know that if you are seriously ill or have a life threatening illness you get seen with in days, you may not like the message but he is honest doesn't waste your time and treats you with respect! My husband had lung cancer but was tested , diagnosed and in treatment within a month!
Most of the appointment was a waste of my time as I had to remind him when I saw him last and why. Then Sitting there waiting while he speaks into a dictaphone and not to me. Very vague with his answers to my questions. He is concerned with my test results done 2 weeks after being in the hospital and the appointment was 2 months after and I am to go for another test soon and my follow up appointment is in 6 months. I won't be back as my confidence in this doctor for the above reasons and more is very poor. Seek a second opinion after seeing this doctor or make your first appointment with another doctor.
I was very concerned about seeing this Dr. after reading some of the reviews, i was very impressed with his nurse and how quickly she got my appt for me, very helpful lady, very polite . As for Dr. Ramesh was great , he has sent me for numerous tests and has a diagnosis for me, something my other doctors were unable to do. I would recommend this dr to anyone with respiratory conditions.
