Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ramzan "My approach is to offer compassionate care that is evidence-based. This requires dedication and extra-ordinary amount of time in continuous medical education (CME). I have spent over 120 hours per year in the last two years, as an example, acquiring CME's. This is more than 4 times the required amount of time that an average physician spends on CMEs."

Seems like Dr.Ramzan is a good Dr. however his staff is horrible, they never return calls. Trying to call in to the office is a nightmare. I just read the other reviews and can't understand why the Doctor Allows this to happen.

Dr. Ramzan is one of the best doctors I've ever known in terms of "bedside manner." He is professional, yet visibly caring. I've been to him about 3 times in the past 10 years, and I wouldn't trust anyone else more than him.
