Dr. Castaneda has seen me through a tremor that became progressively worse. Then DBS, and now is doing the follow up - great success! He seems very intelligent, is caring, patient and takes time to explain what is happening. I am so very glad to have him as my Dr.

I have a tremor and wanted to rule out Parkinson's. Six months for an appointment & then his office canceled, rescheduled two months later. They sent a letter confirming the appointment & warning to cancel at least 48 hours in advance. I arrived & no parking spaces, so I called to advise them I was on my way. They told me they had again canceled my appointment, but I never received notice. I don't know his medical practice skills, but administratively, forget it. I'm now looking for a doctor.

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.
