Dr. Ramon R Pimentel has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Drug Addiction

First time I went in, waited 2 hours, but my normal doctor wasn't available. He was kind and gave the good prescriptions and I went on my way. About 2 years later I returned and waited 2 hours again (with high fever). I had very high blood pressure with fever. When I asked what could cause both he said the usage of crack, and other drugs. Dr. (he wishes) Pimentel virtually called me a drug addict. When I confronted him about it a few weeks later with my blood test (go figure no usage of drugs found) he was apologetic and couldn't remember saying that. Won't be going back to this disrespectful doctor.

One Star

Waited 3 hours to see Dr. Pimentel - office was crowded and only one medical assistant. A the end, they forgot to submit the prescription for which I went to see him. Called their emergency line and left message. Doctor called back after 9 pm but pharmacy was closed by then. Had to wait until next day to get the medicine (after calling them twice in the morning and calling the pharmacy to make sure prescription was sent). No follow up, no apology, no accountability.

A doctor that is easy to access, but lacks everything else

I have visited this doctor twice and on average I have waited approximately 2 to 2.5 hours to see Dr. Pimentel. I was very appreciative the first time I went to him because he was the only Doctor who would take me last second. However the last visit was horrible. The staff was somewhat caring, but seeing that I don't speak Spanish, I'm a nobody. The doctor directly accused me of being on cocaine and having a drinking problem as well as a pack-a-day smoker. I came in with a cough a mild fever and this is what I get. I take a blood test, get the bill for it, but I don't hear anything about the results. I call the office and get a snippy response saying I have to make yet another appointment (at least this time I don't have to pay), but I'll be stuck waiting for the doctor for over 2 hours and I'll see him for about 5-10 minutes. Dr. Pimentel is the probably a talented doctor, but he runs a common practice of overbooking and under serving his patients. I just hope he doesn't treat all his patients with the same disrespect he gave me.If you want to waste your time here go right ahead, but don't say I didn't warn you about his practices.Note: If you are lucky enough to get his underling doctor (I cannot recall his name and I apologize for this), count your blessings. He is a kind doctor and explained things kindly to me before Dr. Pimentel arrived and started throwing around baseless accusations.Jackson Heights is full of reputable doctors, I am sad that I was unlucky enough to find one that isn't.
