The mom recommendation for a Houston obstetrician… How I found the doctor that is technically good & great with patients.

The new TCH Women’s Pavilion opened just as I was having my 3rd child.  I always said, if I have more kids, it’s going to be at the new pavilion.

I desperately wanted to deliver at the new hospital.  I asked for OBGYN recommendations, I did a lot of researching the hospitals… and then it came time to actually pick an obstetrician for baby #4.

The trouble with delivering at the new pavilion was that I would need to leave the care of my doctor.

I have had 3 babies at Woman’s Hospital.  For my 1st child, the doctor was technically very good and everything went fine.  For the 2nd and 3rd child, I took the recommendation from a good friend.

Not only did she say that Dr. Carlos Ramos was technically very good, but he seemed to care about the mom.  When the doctor called to say “Happy Birthday” on her baby’s 1st birthday, I switched.

Here’s what I’ve found with Dr. Ramos:

  • I see my doctor every single visit.
  • I get quick ultrasounds every single visit (in the office, not in another lab).
  • I have direct phone and email access to the doctor.  If I email him a question, I get an answer!
  • I make morning appointments.  If I arrive early, I get in early.
  • I have had my doctor at both deliveries… both 5:00am and 9:00pm.
  • I have had a call on the 1st birthday of each of my kids.

And 7 years after she was born, I still see this picture posted in Dr. Ramos’s office.

So when it came time for baby #4, I really wanted to try the new hospital… but when it came down to it, I was not willing to give up the care of Dr. Ramos.

I got a great recommendation 8 years ago… and if you want my recommendation for a doctor, learn about Dr. Ramos HERE. His office is at Obstetrical & Gynecological Associates, next to The Woman’s Hospital of Texas, in the Medical Center.

    I second that recommendation! Dr. Ramos was my Dr. for both of my pregnancies. I had a car accident during my first. I wasn't hurt but wasn't sure if I needed to have my baby monitored. Dr. Ramos had told me that if I ever had concerns after hours to make sure he was called, even if he wasn't the doctor on call. That's what I did (he was NOT on call) and he advised I go ahead and go to the hospital to be on the safe side. Not too long after I was settled in and the monitors were hooked up, Dr. Ramos walked in. That's the only time I've ever seen him without his lab coat or scrubs on. He left from having dinner with friends and came to check on us. There were no concerns, my baby was just fine, but as my doctor, he wanted to check on us himself. That confirmed what I had already been thinking. I was lucky (am lucky) to have him as my doctor! He genuinely cares about his patients and has gone over and beyond for me multiple times.
