SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Last visit spent most time w/physicians asst. live in Santa Cruz and come to Stanford to see thoracic oncologist - would rather see her - PA very good but stage IV lung cancer - could use reg. oncologist totally - it's your reputation I come for.

SHC Patient, Jun 2014

Dr. Ramchandran is a dr. above all drs. She's knowledgeable, caring, and concerned genuinely for me. I'm not just a statistical number to her.

SHC Patient, May 2014

The best experience I have had with a doctor.
