    This physician is so knowledgeable in all areas. I was amazed. My condition is very complicated. He took all the time necessary to explain what he thought was going on with my pain, weakness, limitations of what I could do at home. He thoroughly explained the plan of care and involved me in the plan. He answered all my questions. I felt very cared for and much less apprehensive than before I came in.

      I would recommend Dr. Paramarajan to anyone. He's amazing. He communicates in a very timely manner when I message him through MyChart, he communicates thoroughly about medications, possible treatment options, everything. He is very kind, respectful, respectable, compassionate, and professional. We have been extremely pleased with him throughout the whole process of my medical journey.

      I am extremely impressed with Dr. Paramarajan. He is clearly an excellent doctor and scientist. He is an expert in his field obviously and it shows. I appreciated his knowledge and his explanations of my tests and symptoms. He is also very considerate of me as a patient and encouraged me to ask any questions I might have. I trust the University of Kentucky will realize what a top notch specialist he is and holds on to him. I would highly recommend this Rheumatologist to anyone.

      Excellent physician. He was clearly and expert in his field and I was confident in his understanding of my unusual case.I am also confident that he will advise me and provide medical care going forward. I really liked this doctor. He got right to the point and to the heart of the matter, and I appreciated his knowledge. I also appreciated that he asked if I had any questions for him, which I did.

      I am very happy with the doctor whose service I was assigned to. After reviewing records sent by my previous doctors, he took the time to ask clarifying questions about my experiences to get a complete picture of my health history. He then throughly explained what we would do both in the near future and changes to my treatment that we might consider further down the road.

      Dr. Hammad Ali (rheumatology fellow) is one of the most caring, thorough physicians I have had the pleasure either seeing or working with in my almost 20 years of nursing. Dr. Piranavan is extremely kind and thorough as well. They both made sure I was familiar with and comfortable with my plan of care moving forward.
