Specialties

Dr. Ravitharan Krishnadasan has the following 4 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Looking for a hematologist who cares.

After 2+ years of being with Dr. Ravi, I am looking for a new hematologist. I phoned his office a few months ago to ask if the doctor ever needed to see me again. I have been on warfarin for years, and my INR fluctuates frequently, and I had not seen the doctor for 2 years. The receptionist checked with Dr. Ravi, and he said he did not need to see me.

Misdiagnosed Patient by a doctor who received his Medical Degree in The Caribbean

I saw Dr. Krishnadasan for an Entire Year Twice a Month. I was Treated with Extremely Toxic Drugs for a disease I did not have; I was told it was "AutoImmune"( This is what he must have learned in the Caribbean Medical School he attended.). I left for a Second opinion at the Mayo Clinic and have been diagnosed Correctly. I am being treated for the Actual Disease I have and I feel Great. I DID NOT have the AutoImmune Disease Dr. Krishnadasan treated me for. The Lack of Concern or Wanting to Learn is Unbelievable; he Never followed up to see what the Mayo Clinic Found. This Doctor and the University of Arizona Deserve NEGATIVE Star's. No Wonder the Hospital has SOLD.

Really listens

I was seeking a second opinion after being with another hematologist for almost 3 years, and Dr. Ravi was more thorough than the doctor I had been seeing. He was thorough and explained everything so that I could understand it.

One Star

While innitial consultation was charming and promising, the rest of the journey was questionable. *Never visited patient at hospital once. Not the 1st nor 2nd hospitalization. *Had to call office to find out what was happening and then he sent a representative after 2nd hospitalization. Made us wonder if that call had't been made if they would have sent someone over. *Never saw patient after first visit again. We always met with his Medical Assistants. *Never received condolences from either him, his staff or his clinic. Very disappointed by his non-participation and zero personal follow-ups.
