I was seen before my appointment time. Dr. Ramirez was patient and answered all questions. He was thorough in his explanations and did not come across as condescending, as some physicians sometimes come across. He was decisive and approachable,
Excellent appointment. Dr. Ramirez took his time with me and was very nice as well. He explained things well to me too
Dr Ramirez left me feeling very confident of the care he will provide
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'm busy 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
He is very informative and listened to my concerns. I did not feel rushed or have that uncertainty as to what to do next.
Dr. Ramirez and all of the support staff were very thorough and professional.

Dr. Oscar Ramirez is the best doctor AND his office staff is great.
Dr Ramirez sat down and took his time with me most rush in and rush out. He seemed as if he genuinely cared about my condition and got the ball rolling that very same day for tests and procedures scheduled for me. I like him.
Dr.Ramirez was very professional and a kind gentleman. He explained everything in detail and his staff followed up in several days to see how things were progressing

Dr Ramirez listened. And was thorough. He was also very professional.
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 very rude. I understand that she was training someone, but patient's should come first and you always treat them with respect.

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 contact me personally when a problem arose. Most doctors would delegate that job to office personnel.
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 last visit, 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!

Good visit with Dr Martinez, and appreciated his suggestions and plan to address my health concerns ...
I thought he was a kind caring Doctor that took plenty of time with me to explain my problem. He noticed a serious problem with my colonoscopy and contacted me immediately for a follow up visit and had me set up for a specialist/surgeon immediately. Highly recommend him!

Very good explainer thing so I could understand them went over all of my concerns with me .
Dr. Ramirez is a great Dr. but today he took over an hour to see us with no explanation. I will say that this was the only time this has happened though.
H is a caring very through doctor!
Wait was extra long today as they were short of doctors, otherwise I have not had to wait long at all. Dr Ramirez is very professional and I feel very confident in him. Glad I have him as my Gastorentrologist. Keep up the great work.
I would recommend Dr. Ramirez to anyone that needs his services. He is very considerate to your condition and he makes sure you are well taken care of. Some of his office staff needs some organizational skills. Today there were several patients that had later appointments and we're called in before a couple of us. This made me late to my next appointment. I was told that that they were short a Dr. today, but that does not explain the appointment jumps. The patients time is valuable and they should be given some feedback if they are running behind if known. The patient is asked to be there 30 minutes before their appointment. The same courtesy should be given to the patient or customer. Thank you.
Dr. Ramirez is a very pleasant doctor, takes his time to explain things. I've been to his office about 3 times. The first two times I waited less than 30 min but this last visit was over 2 hrs. But I highly recommend this doctor
Very professional, very caring! Took all the time needed to answer my questions, and did so in a way I understood.

we went for a 2nd opinion...was very satisfied how he explained everything also how he was focused on the well being of my son...and didnt treat him as if he was just another patient.

His staff was kind and efficient and the doc sat with me and answered all my questions and listened to my concerns. AT the end of the appointment he asked me if I had any MORE questions for him...So glad I changed doctors.
Excellent treatment from the Doctor and every staff that dealt with me. I walked out thinking what a great an experience I had and thinking they deserve some feedback! Of course, next year is my scheduled colonoscopy and I may not be in such a good mood. Especially since Obama is kicking me off of my Healthcare plan this year.
