How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Ramirez is great, but the wait time is unacceptable!! Almost 2 hours for a doc visit is horrible. I appreciate the extra time with the Doctor, but perhaps the appointments should be scheduled out appropriately as to not have so many patients waiting. Schedulers need to adjust times appropriately and not schedule so many of us at the same time. The waiting time is always consistently long and this is making me look at a new provider for my continued care.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was the best doctor's visit I have experienced in a long time. I was very anxious as this was my first visit, but I left with a sense of relief and peace. The office staff was all pleasant and had a smile. Wait time was little to nothing. Dr. Ramirez took his time and explained options and plans of treatment. He was professional, but with a sense of understanding, care and concern. I will not dread my future appointments and I'm very happy to have found Dr. Ramirez.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Ramirez is a good physician and obviously spends time with his patients. That's the good news. Unfortunately, today I arrived at 2pm and didn't see him until 3pm. I was on the verge of leaving when he walked in. I'm busy too and 60 minutes is a long time to wait for anyone no matter what they do or who they are. I realized this is a tough problem to solve when a physician wants to spend the necessary time to see and talk to the patient, leaving the to-be-seen patients waiting an excessive amount of time. It's an easy solution. Schedule less patients for Dr. Ramirez so he can spend the time with each patient that he feels is justified and appropriate. However, since I had less time to spend at this point, I did not have the opportunity to bring up the possible reocurrence of my LPR, my throat soreness and hoarseness. Kindest regards, RSS

The Hispanic girl that was checking me in was very rude. I understand that she was training someone, but patient's should come first and you always treat them with respect.

How was your experience with the doctor?I live quite a ways from Dr. Ramirez's office, but I make the trip because he is a good doctor with a wonderful bedside manner and I recommend him highly to anyone I know. What I didn't appreciate was my last visit, having to wait over an hour to be seen. I understand there were only 2 doctors on hand and Dr. Ramirez being one of them was not feeling well that morning. We should have been advised of the situation and then we could make up our minds whether we wanted to stay or reschedule. I was told of the situation only after I inquired why it was taking so long!
