Sara Ramirez, M.D.
Dr. Ramirez is a dedicated, caring physician who values patient relationships and enjoys being able to provide total women’s healthcare in adolescence, childbearing years and beyond menopause.
She completed her undergraduate studies with honors from the University of Miami. She returned to her native Midwest to attend The Chicago Medical School. During her OB rotation she realized that a career in Ob/Gyn was her passion. She did her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital/University of Miami.
After residency, Dr. Ramirez was in private practice in Miami. She became an advocate for women’s healthcare, feeling that an educated patient is a satisfied patient. Being fluent in Spanish, she became a sought out lecturer and made appearances on Spanish television including Despierta America and the Christina show.
The satisfaction of delivering healthy babies, and the challenges of a technologically advancing field, enables Dr. Ramirez to take care of normal and high-risk pregnancies and perform many gynecologic surgeries including advanced laparoscopic procedures. Her interests also include managing the infertile couple and menopausal patients.
Dr. Ramirez settled in California in 2000 after meeting her husband and joined Mission Ob/Gyn after the birth of their first son. She later had twin boys and as a busy mom she relates well with her patients. She enjoys playing tennis, cooking and spending time with her family.
She is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and a member of the Peruvian American Medical Society (founded by her mother). She has been active on several committees at her affiliated hospitals as well as role of chairman of department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Dr. Ramirez believes in giving back to her community and has volunteered many hours at charity clinics and recently led a group of physicians and nurses on a medical mission to her native Peru.
