Dr. Ramshaw is a highly skilled surgeon. I had parastomal hernia repair surgery on June 30, 2017 and have had no problems what so ever. The doctor is very personable and I was very comfortable talking to him. I would recommend him to anyone needing hernia surgery. In my opinion he is the best.

Like others, nothing but great things to say about Dr. Ramshaw and staff. He's the humble master of his craft. I had too many problems with my bilateral lap. mesh to mention, and they were all resolved after removal by Dr. Ramshaw in June, 2017.
