He has been my children’s doctor since they were babies and I feel he has always treated us like family. Always looking out after his little patients. He has impacted my children’s lives so much that know that they have grown he has become an inspiration to go into the medical field. We will always be grateful and thankful to God for putting Dr. Ramirez in our lives.

Dr.Ramirez is an excellent doctor! He was my doctor since I was 6 years old and is currently my younger brothers primary physician. As a patient I would look forward to my appointments because Dr.Ramirez was very friendly and with a great sense of humor. Not only did he inform my mother but also explained to me what was going on. Although there is a wait time it is worth it! Now as an adult I wouldn’t hesitate to have Dr.Ramirez as my children’s primary physician.

Terrible. Parents have the right to choose their doctors. This includes specialists. He referred us to a friend of his for a mordida. Surgery should not be recommened to a child because they retain medicaid benefits. We almost had our son on the table had it not been for his friend finally saying no. Countless revisits, waiting all day, lobby so full we were resceduled several times, he also seemed drunk during some visits. Terrible experience. Terrible man causing problems when there are none.

Excelente dr. Mi niña nació a las 32 semanas, ya tiene casi 4 añitos y siempre hemos visto al dr.ramirez, es honesto, atento y quiere mucho a sus pacientes. Si hay espera, pero vale la pena.

He is a great Dr. But the wait is way too long. Then to top it off some lady had left and missed her turn then came back and they called her in when it should've been my son's turn so we had to wait even longer

I would not recommend anyone to this office. Wait time over 3 hours! The staff seems to be over worked with the over 30 patients a day,the small waiting area is a total chaos. The worst experience to see a doctor.
