i am a patient at his fairfax office.unfortunatly wait time is a litle longer than i would want.But he does spend more than enough time with me; i never get the impression that he is hurring me out of his office. he answers all questions i have including treatment options very patiently.I think his diagnosis is superb.

A very caring, competent physician

I found Dr. Ranjit Cheriyan very dedicated to providing good quality diagnosis and care. His staff, like him, are courteous and run a very good operation. The waiting time may sometimes be long because he often spends a lot of time with his patients.

Four Stars

the wait time is very long but he will spend as much time answering your questions as you need before moving on to the next patient. The staff in fairfax are very friendly while the arlington office leaves much to be desired.I only go to fairfax (now).

Doctor is fine; staff is lacking

I've visited Dr. Cheriyan a half dozen times. I don't even bother to show up until at least an hour after my appointment. I don't know if that is his fault or his staff's fault.Certain members of the staff are very curt to the point of being rude.Dr. Cheriyan is courteous and likable. He is very casual and matter-of-fact. He is conventional and competent.Compared to other nephrologists, he doesn't do a lot of in-depth explaining about the condition or how different treatments work. (in fairness though, I don't have a lot of questions remaining anymore.)
