Dr. Sunita M Ravikumar has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- 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.

I ALWAYS HAVE THE FIRST APPOINTMENT OF THE DAY, @ 10 AM. I HAVE HAD THREE APPOINTMENTS WITH THIS DOCTOR. SHE IS NEVER ON TIME, USUALLY 45 MINUTES TO 1 HOUR LATE. THESE DOCTORS HAVE NO RESPECT FOR THE PATIENTS, THEY ONLY VALUE THEIR TIME. THEY THINK THAT THEY ARE GODS GIFT TO HUMANITY. I AM GOING TO SEE SOMEBODY ELSE.
Would Never Recommend!!!!! :(

Dr. Ravikumar is way too business like for me. She has terrible bedside manner( back to me entire two minutes she spent w/ me!!) at each visit. Took NO time to listen to my symptoms took NO time to explain her diagnosis to me. treated me like another number everything was by the lab numbers and thats it no questions asked. Complete waste of my time. Would never recommend if you really have a problem or condition and would like to be treated like a person rather than a lab report......
Excellent, personable, efficient Doctor

I appreciate that Dr. Sunita Ravikumar really listens to me and remembers what I tell her regarding family history of autoimmune diseases. She takes the time to answer my questions (and invites questions!), and makes sure I understand my symptoms and what to expect. She is very clear with her explanations and has a warm, friendly, reassuring manner. I am very confident that if I ever have any complications related to my disease, that she would be very prompt in recognizing and managing/ following up.
