Dr. Ramirez's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ramirez "Many moons ago, back when I was an altar boy, I wanted to be a priest when I grew up. But my passion for science and medicine is what eventually put me where I am today. Interestingly, these two careers are not that different from each other. In both one is at the service of others. In both one has to be a good listener to be able to empathize. In both one is able to touch other people's lives and make a difference. Having trained at the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine (American Council for Graduate Medical Education accredited school), followed by training at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio and then University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, I have had the experience of caring for very diverse cultures and patient demographics. This in turn I feel has made me better prepared to handle different presentations of both common and unusual diseases, as well as helped me better understand the role that personal beliefs and cultural backgrounds plays in a person's own perspective of their condition. This in turn helps me try to achieve better patient-centered care. Besides taking care of patients, I actively participate in clinical research studies. I have been able to publish articles and presented clinical data on unusual allergic diseases on different journals and national meetings. "

in San Antonio, TX
I have had the worst allergies for years. My coughing was so terrible and embarrassing- it could clear an airport. Really! I travel for a living. I was referred to Dr Ramirez by a friend. THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE. I think about Dr R 3 times a year - because that’s when I suffer from symptoms...more

Not what I expected. In fact, I see a lot of doctors and realize more and more how "in the box" they are. The only success I had was eliminating allergies as a factor in my eye puffiness. Some suggestions when asking about conditions: "when did you first notice the swelling?", "how long have you...more

I apologize for the bad experience, but thank you for your feedback. I tried to voice my own frustration at not being able to give you a straight answer for the eye puffiness (other than showing that it was not allergies). It seems though that this frustration came across as me not caring, and it disappointed you. Again, apologies for not noting that during the visit. I pray that you have been able to get an answer. Feel free to contact us at any time.
