I have been under the care of Dr Ramirez for the past 8 years and can honestly say that if it wasn’t for him and his staff, my life wouldn’t be worth living. After many years of a pain filled existence, I was fortunate enough to be referred to Dr Ramirez who took a sincere interest in my back, leg, spinal and emotional problems (due to an injury sustained while I was in the Army back in 1969) and his treatment has allowed me to live a much improved quality of life than I had previously experienced for the past 30+ years. It’s so refreshing to have a healthcare professional who actually listens to my concerns and problems and in turn treats these issues in a calm, professional and reassuring manner. Should you have issues with constant pain that interferes with your everyday quality of life, don’t give up. Go see Dr. Ramirez, you’ll be glad that you did.
I have been a patient of Dr. Manuel Ramirez for the last 18 years. I have a disease called RSD/CRPS or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome. It is a nerve problem which causes deteriorating bone problems and is very painful. He initially diagnosed me and has been treating my pain with success all these years and I claim him as “family.” He is professional, but also very caring, intelligent and kind and is a great listener.
Dr. Manuel R. Ramirez
Dr. Manuel R. Ramirez has been a pain management practitioner since 1992. Prior to that, he trained and practiced as a Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeon for 10 years. Dr. Ramirez developed his natural instincts in taking care of patients in his childhood, where he grew up in a hospital environment in the southern part of the Philippines. There, his dad, Dr. Arturo A. Ramirez, a general surgeon, along with his lovely spouse Cecilia T. Tirona, raised 11 children in the second floor of a general hospital, which he founded and operated to treat a variety of clinical syndromes, including pain syndromes.
Manny, as most of his friends know him (and Monchu to his family), completed his Residency and Fellowship at U.T. Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology and the American Academy of Pain Management. He considers himself a naturalized Texan having lived in the city of Dallas since he first came to the United States in 1980.
