Frequently Asked Questions

Our practice is devoted to your health and help you achieve best results. Unfortunately, Dr. Ramos won’t take any medical insurances as a form of payment BUT you can get a superbill at the end of each visit which you are free to submit to your medical insurance

Dr. Ramos offers visits based on your needs as follows

     – First time New Patient: if you are new to her practice or you haven’t seen Dr. Ramos in over 2 years you need to establish care. This will not be considered your wellness exam. This is more to go over medical conditions you need to address with her

     – Wellness Exams: for new or established patients. There are 2 options

               i. Basic: if you DO NOT have any medical compliant or medical conditions that need to be address during this visit. This is purely to do an exam and review your preventive exams, vaccines, supplements and order a complete set of laboratories and diagnostic exams based on your aged group. After this visit you will have a 2-3 weeks follow up to review laboratories and make changes in your health accordingly

               ii. Comprehensive: if you DO have medical conditions or medical complaints you need to address during this visit. This will have the Wellness Basic coverage + medical condition/complaint evaluation and treatment. After this visit you will have a 2-3 weeks follow up to review laboratories and make changes in your health accordingly

     – Follow up visit: in person or virtual. Applies to patients coming from her previous practice at Holy Cross Medical Group or if you have previous seen Dr. Ramos.

               i. Basic: If you need to review 1 set of laboratories or special tests that won’t require more than 30 minutes; that generally applies if its 1 set of results. If you need to go over medication, for refills and side effects of any treatment established previously. If you need to review treatment explained previously and still have questions. If you have acute medical conditions (sick visit) such as UTI, cold symptoms, headache or another medical complaint. At the end of the visit if you need more time, no problem, your health is priority and each case is unique; the extra cost will be adjusted and paid that day (price will be adjusted to a follow up comprehensive visit)

               ii. Comprehensive: same as the basic follow up but patient need to review more than 2 tests, either blood or any specialty lab, and go over treatment plan. Generally speaking, is for patients that will need to have more time for.
