Dr.Ramos has been my rheumatologist for 15+years and has always been a very good doctor,as has all his staff. If he wasn't available when i needed a fast appointment before my disability his PA's are also excellent.Dr. would also take the time to listen to any question,in person or by telephone and answer them honestly,....if he didn't think it was in my best interest,he told me why.But if he thought a clinical study would benefit me we would try it. I respected him when he was honest enough to tell me no..I dealt with other doctors I would never return to. When my husband needed a doctor,I took him to Dr.Ramos first and then ,on his advice,I found the right care. I thought I would have to find help caring for him but now he is looking for a job after retirement.My advice to the other unhappy reviewers..Have patience and listen.Dr.Ramos will give you the best care he can with a smile even on a bad day.

Dr Ramos is my Rheumatologist and has gone above and beyond to get me feeling better. I have been with him for about 12 years and would never even consider leaving him. He is caring and compassionate and listens to what your saying ( I don't feel that all doctors really listen as well as they could). I have recommended him to family and friends and will continue to do so.

Initially I would have said he was my favorite Dr but his attention waned. he was leaving things to his PA and not participating in my care. The last straw was the prescribing of a medication without checking my chart to see it conflicted with another. Flippant remarks and inattentiveness was the norm in the end.
