This was the best doctor's visit I have experienced in a long time. I was very anxious as this was my first visit, but I left with a sense of relief and peace. The office staff was all pleasant and hada smile. Wait time was little to nothing. Dr. Ramirez took his time and explained options and plans of treatment. He was professional, but with a sense of understanding, care and concern. I will not dread my future appointments and I'm very happy to have found Dr. Ramirez.

Dr. Ramirez is a good physician and obviously spends time with his patients. That's the good news. Unfortunately, today I arrived at 2pm and didn't see him until 3pm. I was on the verge of leaving when he walked in. I'mbusy too and 60 minutes is a long time to wait for anyone no matter what they do or who they are. I realized this is a tough problem to solve when a physician wants to spend the necessary time to see and talk to the patient, leaving the to-be-seen patients waiting an excessive amount of time. It's an easy solution. Schedule less patients for Dr. Ramirez so he can spend the time with each patient that he feels is justified and appropriate. However, since I had less time to spend at this point, I did not have the opportunity to bring up the possible reocurrence of my LPR, my throat soreness and hoarseness. Kindest regards, RSS

I loved the doctor, it was the front desk staff that I had problems with. I am a very tolerant person, but I do not appreciate being treated like an idiot. The Hispanic girl that was checking me in was veryrude. I understand that she was training someone, but patient's should come first and you always treat them with respect.

There is a computer in his office that has interestinggastro topics. Last time Dr. Ramirez showed me how to operate it so this time while waiting for him I viewed a video about celiac. I also appreciate the text about appt.

I live quite a ways from Dr. Ramirez's office, but I make the trip because he is a good doctor with a wonderful bedside manner and I recommend him highly to anyone I know. What I didn't appreciate was my lastvisit, having to wait over an hour to be seen. I understand there were only 2 doctors on hand and Dr. Ramirez being one of them was not feeling well that morning. We should have been advised of the situation and then we could make up our minds whether we wanted to stay or reschedule. I was told of the situation only after I inquired why it was taking so long!

Dr Ramirez is very patient and listened to my concerns. He explained my test results, answered all my questions and recommended a plan of action. He came across as a very caring, compassionate doctor, going out of his way to contactme personally when a problem arose. Most doctors would delegate that job to office personnel.

This was my first visit to Dr. Ramirez, and I was very impressed. He took time to explain my total CT Scan results with me (more than my primary care doctor's nurse told me) and answered all my questions. He suggesteddoing a colonoscopy and endoscopy, both which could be done at the same appointment. He was professional and seemed to be very caring.
