Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Rampersaud Jr "I am a urologic oncologist (surgeon) who specializes in treating kidney cancer and upper retroperitoneal tumors. There are three things that I love about my job: 1) Asking patients about their story. Sometimes the stories are about where they are from sometimes they are about what road they took to get here sometimes they are simply about what is on their mind. 2) Performing complex operations because they require a mindset and skills that I possess. 3) Teaching residents and fellows different operations. I love seeing the excitement in the eyes of trainees. However what I enjoy most is celebrating victories with my patients. Ive been known to go fishing with patients when they are able to overcome their cancer and cherish items that have been given to me as thank you gifts. Outside of work I enjoy playing golf and hiking with my children."

Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Rampersaud introduced himself, leaned against a counter, crossed his arms, took a big sigh and asked me "So, why do you think you're here?" At first I thought he walked into the wrong room. He seemed like he hadn't looked over my medical records at all, lacking any knowledge of my current...more

Horribly rude & disrespectful to my 75 y/o mother referred to him for surgery. No professionalism, compassion, or concerns, as he casually leaned against a wall asking in a disconcerting demeanor, "Explain to me what you think your here for?", demeaning her answers to her...more
