Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

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.Read more

Dr. Ramzan himself is a fine doctor. Unfortunately he's running an absolute joke of a practice. Try to schedule via the internet- they never did answer me. Tried to call on several occasions but couldn't get a live person so I left a message-and never got a call back. I finally stopped in to schedule. The staff including the anethesiologist is a clown- spilled my blood all over trying to start the IV. The lobby is disgusting. Chairs are cruel. And I waited 2 hours without anyone telling me why.
Phoenix, Az |
Last experience was not good, I had to literally show the doctor and PA more than once what problem I was experiencing. After noticing the problem, The PA quickly referred me to another doctor. I would think the doctor would at least acknowledge the mistake made face to face but failed to do so. My first experience was great, but my last was very disappointing. I was not expecting the level of care I received.
Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr Ramzan is a wonderful doctor. He is a very caring man. However, is staff is something to debate. They very seldom return phone call much less answer the phone. They are very unprofessional.
New York, NY |
Dr Ramzan is an e collect doctor, his staff does not return phone calls and trying to get throughout on the phone is a nightmare.

Dr. Ramzan says...

Prevention of colon cancer is an important endeavor because it saves thousands of lives every year. It is accomplished by finding and removing polyps. My practice offers Single visit colonoscopy for those patients who are in good health. Patients come to our center only one time to get their colonoscopy without any consultation visit. 

I have a large practice in Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (Crohns and Colitis). Other common conditions that I treat are: Reflux, ulcers, chronic diarrhea, chronic constipation, anemia, chronic liver diseases and internal hemorrhoids.
