    in El Paso, TX |
    I suffered acid reflux. He was quick to order a endoscopy, the most expensive diagnose procedure for my ailment. I was concern enough to accept it. I have private insurance and ended paying close to $1000 out of pocket. He discussed the results, prescribed a pill. After two weeks it was clear that the pill wasn't working for me. I called more than 10 times his office to request him to change the medication. I left a message everytime with a nurse. I never heard back from him.
    Dear patient, We appreciate your feedback, feel free to call our office and please request to talk to our administrator so that we can address your concern and give a different treatment option based on your results, Thank you, R. Ramirez

    Dr. Ramirez is a young doctor with so much knowledge. He knowledge and his experience helped me cure my problem in no time. He was the only one that detected what I had and I had the medical problem for over a month and non of the other doctors know what it was until I saw him. I'm forever grateful to him.
