Ratings for Dr. James N. Ramey
Dr. Ramey is an extraordinary physician. I started with him as a internist, but since his subspecialty is endocrinology, he was also perfect for me when I developed diabetes. He is caring, smart and willing to go the extra mile. Here is an example: One time, when I was hospitalized and itching to get out, he agreed to release me, on condition that I call him if any problems arose. "Call me if you have problems" is just standard doctor talk, right? Not in James Ramey's case. He backed up the standard order by giving me both his home and cell phone numbers. What kind of doctor would do that? A terrific one.
Dr Ramey treated me as less than credible because I had therapy when I was young. He refused to believe a female friend of mine and refused to test her. She later was diagnosed with a serious illness that could have caused birth defects. Another female friend of mine left him because she felt abandoned when she was sick.
I started seeing Dr.Ramey when I was pregnant with twins over 4 years ago. He was referred to my by my fertility specialist who is also top notch. He is very knowledgable, patient, kind and very responsive. Most importantly he listens and gives patients time to talk to ensure that he really has the full story on the factors that are impacting a patient's health.
I just read a Washington Post article on websites for rating doctors. It made me visit this one to see whether my last two internists were on here. I am a current patient of JR. He's fantastic. My former internist was terrible, but more than a few of my co-workers were patients of JR. On their advice, I switched to him. He's been great. At his first physical visit, he spends a good deal of time to get to know you. He's always responsive, and very pleasant. I'm so happy with JR that even after I left my last job and my insurance changed, I still go to see him. This, despite the fact that JR does not take my current insurance, which now pays only 80% of his bills. He's that good.
