I have been a patient of Dr Ramirez for a little over a year now and since then I finally feel better. I had seen other specialists in town but never got real answers as to what was going on with my health until now. Thank you Dr Ramirez & Karina Mosier FNP-C for taking the time to correctly diagnose my illness !!!

The doctor is good. But the staff... They keep sending my dad to do the same lab work over and over n forget when he's gone in. They reschedule his procedures and don't explain to him specifically what he needs to do. They make him do the run around alllllll the time. It's tiring and annoying

Dr. Ramirez is an awesome doctor, unfortunately over this last year he's taking on way too many patients. I scheduled my appointment in December, had tests in Feb., first appointment they rescheduled was in March. They've rescheduled 4 times!! It's now end of June and I'm barely going in and I still don't get to see the doctor, only nurse practitioner.

Dr. Ramirez-Vega is an excellent Doctor, he sees my son and I. Every time we have been there he treats us very well and explains everything to us thoroughly. Spends time with us, doesn't run in and out. I am so glad we were referred to him.

Dr. Ramirez is very professional and explains things in detail. I truly like dr. Ramirez, now the staff needs lots of work on professionalism and politeness. They have changed my appoinments several time and I was not notified. Wait time is at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. BUT I THINK HE IS WORTH IT
