Dr. Ramos is the best doctor...I had a very bad surgical procedure September 2016 with another doctor who blotched my surgery...the original surgery did not get done. It was a nightmare, and I didn't think I could go through with the surgery that needed to be done. I was so frightened and tramatized. After I healed and knew that there was nothing I could do but have the surgery . Than GOD put Dr. Ramos in my path. He was amazing.
Found him loud, intimidating, cold, direct & untrustworthy. No compassion, sensitivity/honesty. Re. a horrific (proven rare) diagnosis, he lied stating it was very common. I felt pressured 2 have surgery with his, "do the surgery now or die tomorrow" attitude. I was lucky 2 have taken a different route & not do surgery, that most likely would've killed me. More than a year now & I'm doing good w/natural treatment. Don't trust doctors- all they see is $$. What a dirty business.

Dr. Ramos saved my life. He performed a whipple procedure on me and so far I have been recovering remarkably well. He took action as soon as he saw me in his office. Along the process every time I mentioned his name, other doctors would acknowledge him as an outstanding figure. Every time I dropped his name doors would open. I would like to extend my gratitude to his exceptional staff who stand alongside him. For me every day brings a new opportunity which comes courtesy of Dr. Hector Ramos.

Dr. Ramos is one of a kind Surgeon. He went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable before and after my surgery. He treats his patients like family. I truly can not say enough about Dr. Ramos and his kind staff. Thank you so much.
