What People Say About Dr. Richard Ramsay, MD
Reply
I saw him as a second opinion from a previous neurologist. Nearly 50 years experience with epilepsy and he tells me I have psychogenic seizures, aka fake seizures. Referred me to a psychiatrist and that was it. I get a third opinion a year later from someone else and I am told I have a tumor. I am now seizure free. I cannot recommend this doctor to anyone.
