His bedside manner is wonderful. He is one of the few doctors that I have encountered that really ensures that his patients understand every step of his treatment plan and why he chose those steps. I personally have a lot of anxiety, and with Dr. Ramirez I immediately felt comfortable and that I was in good hands to soothe my irritable stomach. He is definitely who I will be seeing for any future stomach issues/colonoscopies.
