Ratings for Dr. Frank M. Ramharrack
Incompetent staff. Couldn't download CGM data. Failed to provide labs to Doc for my appt. Doc was unfriendly, implied I was lying, and defensive. As a 50+ year Type 1, thyroid cancer survivor, and osteoporosis patient I needed a new doc after moving from out of state. This one is a disaster if my first impression was correct.
Went to see Dr. Ramharrack for fluctuating TSH (thyroid) levels. He does not listen at all...is very stand-offish and did absolutely nothing more than my primary care doctor had been doing all along. Poor communicator, listener and doctor. Would not go back.
I came in due to a lump on my throat and he ordered a biopsy. BC my husband wks at MRMC we wanted it there. He called 24 hrs after receiving results and asked us to come in. It was cancer. Dr. Ramharrack was great with making all labs and tests at MRMC for us and told me to go see a surgery. He is currently is my dr and has been amazing, patient, and gets down to business. My levels are good and he is adjusting my synthroid when needed. I really am grateful and love the staff.
I had thyroid nodules that this doctor treated with steroids. I finally got a 2nd opinion because my throat hurt, my voice was hoarse, and there was a lot of inflammation. Turned out to be thyroid cancer in both sides of my thyroid. I took my healthcare into my own hands, fired this quack and found a thyroid specialist at Shands. The Shands doctor performed a biopsy on the first appt., found cancer in two nodules. I was notified in 24 hours and in surgery with a total thyroidectomy in one week. Three years later, I feel lucky I only had stage 1 cancer. I would encourage anyone with a thyroid problem to go to anyone else. This doctor would have let me rot before referring me to a surgeon.
the staff that took me in to take blood pressure was so rude and demanding i was there to have my thyroid biopsy i'm not a diabetic ! she told me to do as I'm told and get on the scale i said i was at dr the day before and knew my weight THE GIRL THAT I THING WAS RELATED TO THE DR. YOUNG DARK HAIRED GIRL . THE GIRL SAID NO DO AS YOUR TOLD !!! demanded in a rude manner loud too. I was ready to leave ,but they said she would not bother me again that it was ok once they knew i would not be treated so badly . Then I WAS DIRECTED TO THE ROOM TO SEE THE DR . THE DR. RAMHARRACK came in HE DID NOT EVEN HAVE MY CHART HE HAD SOMEONE ELSE'S HE THROUGH IT IN THE TRASH HE gave a shot to kill the pain but waited no time to see if it was working jabbed me in the neck i jumped in pain and the needle went very deep in my neck so much pain for 3 days . i would never go back there for anything even risking the chance of cancer i would not return .VERY BAD !
Patient will see a nurse practitioner about 80% of the time and the MD about 20%. Doctor is quite taciturn but appears to know the specialty very well. Has new diabetic patients see a ?dietitician/nurse about diet which was a waste of time. However, the office has monitored meds, dosages, lab results and my diabetes is in good control.
WHat a complete waste of time and money. Was so rude and unhelpful. Recently diagnosed, he asked for me to give some history then pointed at his watch and said I would have to come back when I started asking questions on what to expect. Please, if you are new to diabetes, find someone else.
