Have you seen Dr. Chalakudy Ramakrishna?

June 23rd, 2016Not a psychiatrist I'll ever see again
I have felt the need to see a psychiatrist about some mental issues that have been worsening. I came to see him (no recommendation, just on my insurance). After waiting 2 hours, he shuffled me in, did not listen to a word I said, kept looking at his watch. He interrupted me constantly when I was trying to say something that is important to me and my condition and his interruption in the middle of a very emotional issue would be about something he had already asked or about information that is in the questionnaire I filled out (he never looked at it). When he was trying to get me to leave, I told him I didn't think he understood the severity of my problem. He said I was too anxious and agitated to talk. Wait, isn't that why I am seeing him? He gave me a prescription (not for anxiety/panic attacks) and almost pushed me out of his office. I will not be going back. He should have chosen a profession that does not require empathy or listening to the patient.

I rated promptness poor because the staff (front desk, Manager) "drags their feet" when doing anything requesting forms or paperwork. Courteous Staff (front desk, Manager) is also poor because they are rude and disrespectful. Who wants to go to a Dr.'s office and get hit with an attitude problem from one of the "girls" working their? Not me. I have my own behavioral issues I'm working on, I don't need their attitude to boot! Furthermore if they cant understand the needs or be respectful towards patients with Behavioral problems then they don't need to be working here. Dr. Ramakrishna is Awesome. He is super nice, caring, funny, down to earth... just an all around Amazing Dr.

This guy has no interest in me at all, asks a few questions while paying no attention to my answers. Doesn't have any bedside manner whatsoever. I would not recommend him to anyone!
June 4th, 2014Horrible doctor
His lack of eye contact speaks volumes about his deceit. All he needs is a cash cow, no wonder one patient's review says he is still a patient after 13 years. If you go to him without any support system like family, friends, you are the ideal candidate for him to prey on you.He will give you most powerful meds(offering most kickbacks) and you wont live or die but will keep paying his bills. You will answer to your higher god, Dr.Chalakudy!

Dr. Rama is an invested physician who cares deeply for his work and his patients. He relates to you as opposed to making you feel like a patient and him as a superior.
June 21st, 2011Prehistoric care
I was a pt admitted to the Southfield psychiatric floor. Dr. Rama was my admitting physician. From the beginning, he was absolutely horrible. He did not want to be questioned, he did not involve me in my plan of care, he would not tell me who my "team" members were that were in charge of my care and would not allow me to read my chart. I had absolutely no rights. The lack of communication was absolutely horrible. He treated me as if I had a frontal lobotomy and didn't understand english. Having both a nursing and legal background, I found it very interesting the way pts were being treated. The program is from the '70s and having Dr. Rama as a medical director is a JOKE! If it wasn't for me being my own advocate and having a great support system on the outside, I wonder if I would still be in Dr. Rama's "5-7" day program with an additional "4-8" days...???
