About Belinda Ramirez, M.D.

About

Dr. Ramirez then accepted a Fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of Florida College of Medicine. Here, she chose to focus on gastroenterology over other opportunities because of the unique balance the sub-specialty offered. She recounts those early days, “As a medical resident, I had the opportunity to do flexible sigmoidoscopies. It was a nice balance seeing my patients in the clinic, and then evaluating their symptoms further through the use of endoscopic procedures.”

Today, Dr. Ramirez continues to take pleasure in her work as a gastroenterologist. When asked what she loves most about practicing medicine, she says, “Taking care of some of the nicest people one could ever meet. I often have the privilege of seeing multiple members of the same family. Right now, I can think of one mother who keeps surprising me in the office—by bringing in yet another one of her daughters!”

Dr. Ramirez feels fortunate to be part of an evolving field of medicine. For example, New treatment options are now available for patients struggling with illnesses such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, including a class of drugs referred to as biologics. In general, these drugs are used to control the immune system, as well as help to achieve and maintain remission of the disease. As a result, chronic steroid use is avoided. Hospitalizations and long-term complications are also reduced and the need for surgery is often eliminated as well. Research, however, is ongoing as there is still so much more to learn about these drugs and other newer agents.

Finally, in addition to gastroenterology, Dr. Ramirez has many other passions. When Dr. Ramirez can find some free time in her busy schedule, she squeezes in an outdoor jog or high intensity interval training—activities she also encourages for her patients.

Reviews

I feel like this is not the same place according to all the bad reviews I'm reading. I didn't get that horrible treatment from the staff, they wher actually very nice to me and Dr Ramirez was on point on time and very professional. I would totally recommend my family and friends to her. I had my treatment in 2017.

Dr Ramirez saved my wife's life 13 plus years ago. My wife is an RN and selects her doctors well. Some of the inconveniences are in the nature of many if not most clinics. Ever worked at a clinic? More importantly, being in the hands of a Good doctor with a professional team is what counts. Especially when it's a matter of life and death. She is also my GI doctor and I fully trust her and her team. If you are looking for a fast drive-through GI clinic, keep going (although they do their best). If you are looking for a good doctor who is thorough, professional, knowledgeable and caring... Our family highly recommends Dr Belinda S. Ramirez, MD.

Dr. Ramirez is a very through caring doctor. She lets you know everything from what to except before your procedure and everything after.
