Ratings for Dr. James E. Ramseur
I have seen Dr. Ramseur for a few years now. I was very ill when I went to see him for the first time. My general doctor was not able to figure out what was wrong with me, and kept giving me a bunch of vitamins to take(which didn't help). I gave Dr. Ramseur a run down on all my symptoms and how I had been feeling the past year. He had said that it sounded like I had a thyroid problem and ordered lab work. I finally found out that I had Hashimoto's disease. He referred me to a specialist after I found out the results. He is very knowledgeable and personable, and I would refer anyone to see him. If you're looking for a great ob/gyn, you should definitely see Dr. Ramseur. His staff could really use a little brushing up though.
Best OB I've ever seen. While I was pregnant I had a bilateral pulmonary embolism. Dr. Ramseur made sure I saw the best hematologist. He also had my thyroid closely monitored because of my hypothyroidism. He was very patient with me (I was a nutcase) and always took time to explain things in a way that I could understand. I enjoyed my appointments and the staff was always very sweet and fun. Can't say enough great things about Dr. Ramseur and his staff.
The good: He is very jovial and has great bedside manner. He takes time with each of his patients and never rushes through his appointments, adding to an overall feeling that he cares. He seems very knowledgable and has lots of experience. His back office/ nurse staff and great. He is very upfront about costs, and his billing lady is very helpful. He is very responsive when you call the emergency line and doesnt make you feel bad for doing it. The bad: his receptionist is hands down the worst I've encountered. He is always late, so plan on a long wait. There is not enough communication between the doctor and the staff making it hard to find out how far behind he is and thus arrive later (my work didnt like this). His emotions are transparent, so if he is upset about something else, you can kind of tell. Sometimes when answering questions, he is not direct enough leading to lack of clarity. Overall, I strongly recommend. My experience with him makes up for all the bad!
The lady at the front who talks on the phone... She's extremely rude. She gives you a "why are you so dumb?" look as well as "I'm so irritated right now" voice if you make a mistake or ask questions. Why should I feel judged by the first face that is supposed to serve me and make me feel comfortable to see the doctor? I also noticed that she seems to take delight in the fact that appointments are so hard to get. Also, the waits are long for the appointments and within the office. The only and best thing about this office is Dr. Ramseur himself! He's friendly and very helpful.
I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and my experience with Dr. Ramseur has been great so far. He takes time to answer any questions I have and his staff is always on top of things even when I forget stuff. They always call me with test results and are always friendly. I had to wait a bit the first time I went to his office but the staff explained to me that he was called to the hospital due to an emergency. I understand that because I would want him to rush to my help if I need him. I chose Dr. Ramseur because he was recommended by many people as a great doctor for C sections and this is my third one. He's great with my kids as well and I always bring them with me to appointments. I've been very happy with him as my doctor and look forward to a great C-section in a few months.
I was always waiting at least 30 mins and he never answered any of my questions without becoming noticeably irritated. I left my last appt in tears because of how incredibly rude he was to me. He walked out on me because I inquired about some answers to lab work I had not seen yet. I switched drs at 25 weeks and got more information over the phone from my new dr reviewing my chart than I ever got from dr Ramseur. Would not recommend him. His front office staff was very rude and were always talking about patients and to patients on the phone in great detail in front of a waiting room full of people. Total hipaa violation.
AWESOME DOCTOR! I went to Dr. Ramseur for my 1st pregnancy and would go again in the future. He has a great bedside manner, is funny, and made me feel at ease right away. He never rushed me and answered all my questions. He is also VERY knowledgeable. He has been an OB for over 20 years and is the "go to" guy whenever there is a C-Section in the hospital because he is just that good. But he does NOT recommend or push C-sections on his patients that don't need them. He is sometimes running on time and other times I was kept waiting up to 1 hour, usually if he was in the hospital that morning delivering a baby. I highly recommend him!
