Dr. Hector F. Ramirez learned at an early age what was expected of a doctor – dedication, caring, giving, selflessness. He saw these every day in his father, an Obstetrician/Gynecologist who practiced in Puerto Rico. “He is my role model. He is why I became a physician,” says Dr. Ramirez. An OB/GYN with Orlando Health Physicians Associates, Dr. Ramirez practices in the Ocoee, Winter Garden, Windermere area not far from his family’s home in West Orange County.
“I enjoy being a part of a patient’s journey through pregnancy,” says Dr. Ramirez. “The satisfaction of helping others is so rewarding, that is what my career is all about.”
He completed his OB/GYN residency at Arnold Palmer Medical Center, where he was trained by doctors from Physician Associates. “They were my attending physicians,” says Dr. Ramirez. “They spent a lot of time patiently training me and guiding me through a demanding residency. They helped me become who I am today.”
Fluent in English and Spanish, Dr. Ramirez is open with patients about their care and ways they can achieve health after an illness. “I am able to establish relationships with my patients very easily,” he says. To assist in that, he plans to also learn Portuguese.
