Patient Reviews
Dec 14, 2023
Dr. Ramaswamy saved my mother’s life the day after Thanksgiving in November 1984 after she was shot in the thigh by a deer hunter near Grayling, MI. Fortunately Dr. Ramaswamy was on call in the ER at Grayling Mercy (then a very small-town hospital) that night and had experience treating gunshot wounds from his time in Detroit. I am eternally grateful for him having afforded me many more beautiful years with my mom until she passed in 2022 at the age of 83. Dr. Ramaswamy is everything we can hope for in a doctor and I am in awe of his work ethic and devotion to Medicine, thrilled and amazed to see he is still practicing albeit in a different part of the country.
