Care Philosophy

I believe in spending time with the patient and their parents during all their encounters with me. It is important to have a one to one conversation, paying attention to details. It is also important to think ahead and anticipate problems and solutions. I always have plan A, B and C in my mind and I am very open discussing all possibilities with the patients and their families. Teamwork and good communication are essential for providing excellent care. I believe in empowering the patient and their families with the best information as to allow them to make informed decisions regarding their health.

Very passionate doctor who cares for her patients. Would absolutely to family and friends.

De. Ramos has been excellent with the care of our son. He has had two surgeries. Both have been very successful. We had taken our son to the hospital ER and his diagnosis went unseen. Thank you Dr. Ramos for everything.

Dr Ramos Irizarry performed 3 major surgeries on my infant son saving his life. Her and her team were amazing and you can tell they love what they do. They took my son in to emergency surgery on a Friday night because she could not go home without finding the problem- thank God she did, it saved his life. Because of her, my son is alive and well today. She was a blessing!

Sometimes for lack of time we don't left a review for a doctor, without analyzing that with our post we can help other parents to choose the best option for their children. Doctor Ramos is a perfectionist in her work, she is an example of discipline and perseverance, communicates well with parents and she has full knowledge of her profession. She is very kind and loving with children and she has excellent bedside manners. She is a wonderful professional. I highly recommend her.
