Dr. Gayathri Raman

i-HgcphJBnqJJkQjkVFeCXeqY93XO6Wvs9CFFMwFwycDr. Gayathri Raman (pronounced GUY-three)  is a Board Certified Family Physician specializing in Weight Management, Preventative Medicine, and Executive Health. Her medical training began at the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s six-year accelerated medical program, graduating in 1998, at which time she joined St. John’s Mercy Medical Center in St. Louis as a resident family physician. Upon completion of residency, Dr. Raman spent one year working at St. John’s Mercy Emergency Room and was an active partner at the St. Louis Medical Clinic before starting launching her current practice at Lunaris Health and Wellness.

Born in India, and raised in Farmington, Missouri, Dr. Raman now lives in St. Louis and is “Mom” to son Anshul and daughter Nithya. She claims her wonderful husband, Venky, keeps her grounded when life sometimes becomes overwhelming.

In her spare time, she is an avid fitness buff, inspiring her to enhance her medical practice with additional studies in fitness training and nutrition. She also continues to follow her childhood passion of Indian classical dancing.

I am blessed in being able to share this experience with my daughter by taking classes together. It is my wish that every person find balance in their life. — Dr. Raman

Dr. Raman’s approach to treating the mind-body connection with patience, care, and compassion creates a doctor/patient relationship that emphasizes solutions and empowers each person to identify and obtain their own personal victories.

With a personalized medical practice, Dr. Raman blends the advantages of a traditional medical practice with the benefits of high-level access to a primary care physician. Call it “boutique care” or “direct primary care” — this evolving, new relationship with your primary care physician is best known as Concierge Care.  In addition to accepting most insurance plans, Dr. Raman’s Concierge Care program offers you the opportunity to develop a life-long, caring and meaningful relationship with her — 24/7. Membership in Dr. Raman’s Concierge Care program is very similar to your monthly gym membership fee — about the same cost as a daily cup of coffee — with many more health benefits!

The result is that I’m able to spend more time with fewer people, which gives me more time to be thoughtful and thorough. My focus is much more on-target when I can offer my full attention to 6-10 patients a day vs. how’d I’d interact with 25 patients a day. — Dr. Raman

If your health is a priority, then it’s time to establish a relationship with Dr. Raman. There are no quick visits, unless that’s what you want. Dr. Raman stays in the exam room with you until all of your questions have been answered. You’re not competing for face time with hundreds of other patients, like you might be with a traditional primary care physician.

I practice medicine like I live life. I enjoy the triumphs and conquer the hardships but, above all, I rise to meet the challenges and face the uncertainties that shadow us each and every day. Join me in this journey to better our lives through enhanced personal healthcare. — Dr. Raman

In addition to a full time practice, Dr. Raman has had the privilege of serving as a Health Reporter for Fox 2 News. This media platform has given her the opportunity to deliver the message that for every symptom experienced, there is a diagnosis and a treatment.

In March of 2009, Dr. Raman was honored as the recipient of the “Woman of the Year” award given by Zonta International. Zonta is an organization that emphasizes and encourages the role women play in society. It teaches women no matter how big or small the part, we all encompass the global phenomena of womanhood.
