A hepatologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the liver, gall bladder, pancreas and biliary tree - the path through which bile that is secreted by the liver travels to the duodenum. These organs are responsible for many essential bodily functions, such as production of hormones and enzymes, filtering the blood, detoxifying chemicals, metabolizing drugs, and digesting and processing food.

A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted.

I was in several hospital battling autoimmune hepatitis. Dr. Ramos was a resident when I met him at the emergency room at the VA hospital. I was vomiting blood but my vital were perfect, I was non symptomatic. He could have just gave me nausea meds to stop the vomitting but he said he wanted to make sure it wasn't something serious and goin that I had blood vessels busting on the inside of my esophagus everywhere. He went in and spent a few hrs putting tiny rubber bands on each and every tiny vessel to stop the bleeds. He drained 8 liters of blood from my stomach. I was literally hours from death and he saved me. I have followed up with him ever since and he is always very caring & looking out for me and my family.
Dr. Ramos has the worst bedside manner and I mean the worst! My experience with him was a nightmare, he was a flat out BULLY... Dr. Ramos was rude to my husband, rude to me and made me feel so horrible that I would dread it when he would come to my room, I would shut down with his accusations, it took another Dr. to put him in his place and tell him not to be judgemental and hard on me.I wish that he and alot of medical staff would realize, that kind of behaviour worstens a patient's health and encouragement saves lives it really makes a difference, I know, I had great doctors and nurses that encouraged me and it made me want to get better! But then the horrifing bedside manner would just make me shut down and want to give up. I got a second chance at LIFE thanks to the TEAM of doctors at Banner Good Sam-Transplant Center. I give credit were credit is due.
Dr. Ramos saved my life in 2005. I was incorrectly diagnosed by a team of high ranking Naval GI's and Hepatologists just 3 months prior to meeting Dr. Ramos in the Emergency Room. I had been battling my rare liver disease for half a decade, seeing supposedly the best drs in the field. I realize that my condition was extremely rare, but Dr. Ramos was able to diagnose and treat me after having me as an ER patient for 20 minutes. The man literally saved my life! His bedside manner?? Think of the old tv shows where the doctors would come visit patients just to make sure they were okay. I have been in the hospital for ailments not related to my liver disease and some how Dr. Ramos catches wind that I am in the hospital, and there he is. Very concerned and caring ALL the time. My family adores this man and his partners. They are honest and caring and they always go the extra distance to make sure you get the care you need and more. A+++++
Dr. Ramos is extremely unprofessional with a horrible bedside manner. He was very rude to my husband and didn't want to spend any time with us. Frankly, I'm surprised that there are people that think he's "adorable". We were even talking to him and he wasn't listening. If you want a good doctor, please, do not go to this jerk.
