Definitely a pill pusher and set in his old fashioned ways. He sees most patients for 5 minutes. On my firstvisit, I told him I was interested in weening off my antidepressant and he told me not to do it because I would end up in the hospital and killing myself. Wow. He also claims to only take cash which is ridiculous and just allows for no paper trail. He quickly submitted exorbitant insurance claims with the wrong codes just to get more money. After meeting with him for 15 min (first appointment) we came out and the rom was filled with 5-6 people who had come in those 15 min. Unprofessional and disappointing. Would rather pay more for a better doctor. UGH

A very pleasant older man, clearly set in his ways. You can get a script in under 5 minutes which iswhy I do NOT advise seeing him. Again, pleasant man, not a bad guy, just another one of your classic psychiatrists who writes scripts and bills insurance, no real investigation of your problems

Signed up for psychotherapy, but I spent less than 15 minutes in the office, barely said anything, and less than halfway through he was writing me two prescriptions that I tried to refuse. I'm sure if you're referred by a psychologist he'd be great for prescribing and monitoring meds, but he did not provide psychotherapy. I've never had a confirmed diagnosis, so I was not prepared to leave with medication.

This was my first appt with Dr Ramay. Great bedside manner, an open communicator, and let me play an active role in potential therapy options. Spent a good amount of time discussing personal and family history and seemed to take detailed notes. Having tried to find someone I can actually talk to, I'm hopeful after my first visit that I finally have. The other patients in the waiting room also spoke highly of him.

I will not go to see Dr. Ramay again. I went to him for acute depression. He started me on meds that were not working. I was taking too much time off from work that I needed a medical certificate to take medical leave but he would not fill it out. I ended up going to another doctor that was willing to fill it out.

He was amazing to the point , focused on responses. And he took the time ask follow up questions. I would recommend him. Great first impression and impressed he took the time himself to call in my confirmation. Worth the 45 minute drive for me. If I have anything negative to say it would be I wish he was closer. He was worth the compromise!

My appointment with Dr. was at 5:35pm. He took me in at around 6:30pm. I waited so long fo him to finally see me. Once he saw me it was all about the money and changing the medications. He didnt want to get to know me. Doctors nowadays just want the money. THey are so greedy and money-minded.

My first visit with a psychiatrist since high school, and Dr. Ramay was very understanding and sympathetic to how my problems had manifested again as an adult, gone untreated for 15 years, and were leaving a pattern of chaos and underachievement in my adult life and career. I've been a patient for several months now and have seen a vast improvement in my quality of life and career. Highly recommended!!!

Dr Ramay seems to truly care and have empathy. He is the only Doctor I've felt has accurate insight into what it can be like for a patient in the mental healthcare system. He is extremely intelligent and has achieved many rewards for excellence in his field. He also has a very relaxing and beautiful office, which not all psychiatrists do. I have seen Dr Ramay three times now, and I've never had to wait for our appointment. I recommend Dr Ramay 100%

First visit went really well. The doctor listened to me and asked pertinent questions. He diagnosed me and scheduled a follow up appointment without hesitation. The wait was not long at all maybe 15 minutes at the most. Nice office and nice bedside manner. I'm very picky when it comes to my doctors and I'm very pleased.
