I first met Dr. Ramin in 2004 at City of Hope when I was admitted for removal of an residual abdominal mass, the result of a chemotherapy regimen for testicular cancer. There were two options at the time, a traditional surgery with rather large ugly cuts, or a laparoscopic technique which was somewhat new at the time. Dr. Ramin said he would try the less invasive technique first to see if would be successful. Dr. Ramin was a pioneer in this kind of surgery, and fortunately for me, was able to successfully remove the mass leaving only 3 small marks on my abdomen.
Maybe too much information, but ever since he has monitored my condition, with great attention and professionalism. And over the years since, he has removed a small bladder tumor, and performed TURP surgery for an enlarged prostate.
I highly recommend Dr. Ramin, as a physician and as a friend whom I trust.
