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

Dr. Is good easy going understanding ... staff is another story First it took me a month and a half to get my appt then I show up and they had to re schedule for a month later because the Dr. would not be Available they kept calling the wrong number . Had the procedure finally done but I’m still in pain and still having problems .. have called several times left various messages and still no answer from anyone ... needless to say I will be looking elsewhere for help ..

I have no complaints on Dr. Ramirez. He is very professional and caring doctor. Beware of his staff. Good luck trying to get an appt.. anytime soon. It took me 3 months just to see him, then a follow up was another 2 months and still I am in pain. I tried to leave a message for the doctor 2 days in a row and no one bothered calling me back. I am still waiting. The receptionist thinks she is the doctor telling me my symptoms are not that severe as that "maybe" someone will call me back.

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.
