Dr. Ramon E Jimenez has the following 2 specialties
- Surgical Oncology
Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

This man saved my life after a breast cancer diagnosis at age 35. He took the time to explain everything I was about to go through. Not only speaking it but wrote it all down for me as well. He put my mind at ease during a very difficult time. He is a very thorough surgeon as well. If he says your surgery time is 7:45 you can bet you will be on time. I was very impressed by this. He leaves no stone unturned! His office staff is wonderful and all smiles. He also has a good sense of humor. Many times he made my husband and I chuckle. Very caring and thorough doctor!
Dr Jimenez was my surgeon when I had breast cancer in 2008. He spent alot of time explaining my options to not only me, but to my husband, daughter and son. Thanks to this my daughter, who was only in her 30ties, heeded his suggestion to get regular check-ups because she likely was at high risk of breast cancer as well. In 2010 she discovered she had breast cancer, but due to early diagnosis her prognois is very good. In a weird way, my getting cancer probably saved her life. But it was the time that Dr. Jimenez spent with our family that made the difference. He did a great job with my surgery as well, but he did take the time he needed for the surgery. He is very careful and wants to be in top condition for every procedure. He told me he would cancel a surgery if he did not feel rested. He does have a sense of humor which might put some folks off. But I found him to be one of the best doctors I've ever had. I continue to see him for twice a year follow-ups. I feel he know me well and cares not only about me but about my entire family. He also is a top cancer researcher. Great Doctor!!!
