I don't think she is the right provider for me. I am a change behavior first and see what happens over time type of patient. She is more a prescription drug first doctor. She doesn't give behavioral change enough time to work nor does she really show interest in it. I had to point her that a few things improved a lot such as weight, blood pressure. You would think when you wait almost 45 minutes after your appointment that she would have reviewed your information.... not at my last visit.

This was to establish care with this provider. Did not have enough time to cover all questions. Also, I had first appt. in the morning, so that allowed for no wait time.

It seems to be hit or miss with this provider. Sometimes she takes the time to hear me and other times not. And I never feel she is prepared with my medical history.

I am especially appreciative of Dr. Monica Ramsey's proactive care. She seems to anticipate my needs and requirements for maintaining health with preventive measures i.e. flu shots, etc. Things I wouldn't think of as being needed. She is always helpful with explanations and has a very positive and encouraging outlook.

I am very pleased with Dr Monica Ramsey's care of me. She is very knowledgeable and she listens. I wish she had more hours in her day because our appointments are carefully timed, but that's just the way it is with healthcare nowadays. I have recommended Dr Monica to several people.

Dr. Monica Ramsey showed a comforting balance between being professional and being empathetic.
