Dr. Ramirez was very intent on typing his notes and did not make eye contact. I had a recent sacroplasty and could not sit for a long time. He chastised me for standing despite my advising him of the situation. He also said he had other patients waiting. Now, I had waited an hour to see him. I replied that I had to stand due to discomfort and that the other patients could do as I had done: wait. He did not share information readily or explain what he was doing or why.

Dr. Ramirez is a great blessing as my Parkinson's neurologist (MDS). Before seeing him, I had trouble receiving the proper care and the correct diagnosis in San Antonio. I even went to the Baylor College of Medicine PD and Movement Disorders Clinic in Houston with Dr. Janokovic because I was afraid to come back to San Antonio until I found the right care. Thankfully, Dr. Ramirez came from BMC. Dr. Ramirez did so much to help me through my DBS surgery. We are so thankful for Dr. Ramirez.

Dr. Ramirez is very thorough in the analysis of your condition. He listens carefully to what you have to say, and seems to ask very pertinent questions. He doesn't seem anxious to over treat a symptom, yet provides alternatives to choose from. I am confident I have the best Dr. on San Antonio for my condition!
