She is excellent and well trained. I wish that she had a better spread out schedule so that patients did notneed to wait almost an hour and then be told she can only talk for a few minutes.

I can’t believe it’s been five years since I transferred my primary care from my pediatrician to Dr. Deepa Ramachandran. I can’t believe I haven’t written a review yet! To get the cheese out of the way, Dr. Ram really isthe bomb. ;). Dr. Ram and her support staff made the transition in care seamless. Dr. Ram is thorough, and her yearly exams and blood panels have caught some critical health issues and changes. Because of them, I’ve improved my diet and started on mindfulness meditation/yoga, feeling more energized and balanced as a person. She always walks into the room happy and motivated to help and solve problems. Dr. Ram’s advice and calm, assuring manner has helped ease the growing pains of young adulthood. If there is a case where we need a second opinion, Dr. Ram has fantastic referrals, all as astute as she. Many members of my family now use her as a primary care doctor, and they are always satisfied with her practice. Other medical professionals share the office at Southbay Family Medicine including a convenient Universal Diagnostics Laboratory. Her kind support staff communicate well and help with any problem. Her office is paperless. Instead of filling out redundant forms every time you come in, you use one of her office’s tablets to check in. You can set up a secure online account, where you can check previous blood panels, access messages, etc. Dr. Ram runs a very efficient and effective practice. I’m grateful to have her as my primary care doctor. Here’s to another five years of good health and watching Dr. Ram’s adorable family grow!

I've had a few appointments with Dr. Ram and she is excellent! It's a small office, everyone is super nice & they treat you with lots of care. I like that they use technologies like a tablet with credit card swipefor the new patient paperwork or co-pay process. They also have a portal (it's a little clunky but still worth mentioning) for the patients. I love having Dr. Ram as my doctor. Her Western and Eastern approach to medicine is very refreshing.

I have recommended 3 other coworkers to this office. They treated me like a person, not a number, and the doctor took the time to understand my lifestyle and recommend alternative methods for improved health, as opposed to writing me prescriptions. I really appreciate the level of professionalism here.

This was the best experience I've ever had with a physician of any kind. Super smart, responsive, and friendly. Yes, the wait was long, but I understand other patients had situations that demanded she spend longer than planned with them. Better that than spending less time than necessary!

After I put my gown on for my "Skin cancer screening" I fell asleep while waiting 30 minutes for her to come back in the room. She said she had an emergency, but I think she forgot. Other than that, she was nice and her nurses were very good.

The visit was super fast and smooth. I made my appointment on ZocDoc the night before at 11pm for a next day appointment- got in, filled out my form in under 2 minutes on a cool touch pad, sat down foranother 2 minutes, and was brought to the back. I think the most impressive part is the lack of wait time. A nurse worked with me right when I was lead to the back, and my Dr. Ramachandran came in right after the nurse was done. I'm used to waiting for 20 more minutes in the back at other places I've been to so this was a much appreciated change of pace! The front desk receptionist, nurses, and Dr. Ramachandran were all full of smiles. I think I'll make this my go to from now on :) It's pretty difficult to find a place that makes me feel comfortable but this seems to be it!

This review is for my visit with Dr. Ramachandran that was about two years ago. I was pleased with her professionalism, bedside manner, and knowledge. She put me at ease during a mole removal that she did a great job with.You could only notice the scar if you really stared at the area. I also had a bad allergic reaction to something and called the office to set up an appointment the next day. They advised me to seek urgent care instead which I thank them for, because when I got there, it was deemed necessary. So she and the staff know what they're doing. I didn't go back to for any follow up since I changed jobs and had no insurance. With Obama mandating coverage, the first thing I did when deciding which health insurance provider I should choose was to see if Dr. Ram was in network. I am currently setting up an annual physical with her as I write this.

Dr. Ram is professional and has a spunk/excitement in her approach to her job. I met her for the first time and I immediately thought of the cartoon figure, 'Tigger'. She was very enthusiastic combined with a professionalism that just screams, 'I love what I do' Highly recommended.

Everything was great. Walking into the office, it's unclear that I had to walk to the right desk (it shared among several doctors). I didn't realize it was only a first appointment and not the physical. They also had an interestingtablet to complete your forms. I hoped that completing forms on zocdoc would obviate that step :(.
