Patient Comments (2)
in McAllen,Tx |
He made me feel at ease and took time to answer questions. His staff was great and very reassuring.
in Alamo, TX |
The first time I talked with Dr Ramirez he listened to my symptoms, asked me a few questions, and the next morning I was in the hospital for a heart cath and a stent for an 85% blocked coronary artery. Dr Ramirez is all business yet gentle with his comments. I've seen four other cardiologists in the last 15 years. Dr Ramirez is the best.
