I was lucky to get referred to Dr. Ramirez when I found out I had Stage 3 cancer. He was very forth coming with my possible results and asked if I wanted to select my team and I deferred to him. The results have been fantastic. Cancer is gone and I am back to myself a year and a half later.

Dr. Ramirez saved my mother's life. Every time we have met with him, in the hospital and in his office, he has been willing to answer ALL questions and takes a general concern and interest in what is going on with us. I wish he could be my family's general doctor so we could see him for everything.

I was lucky to be referred to Dr. Ramirez when my rectal cancer was diagnosed in 2011. It would take many pages to tell my various experiences. Suffice to say that at all times Dr, Ramirez has been and is, the very best I could have wishes for.
