As a young girl, Andrea J. Ramsay had a dream and desire to become a special kind of Doctor. Growing up in Miami, Florida, she attended the University of Florida and St. George’s University School of Medicine.
As Dr. Ramsay was deciding her specialty, she pursued training in Surgery, Emergency Medicine/Trauma, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Plastic Surgery, and then Family Medicine became her true calling because she could truly do a little bit of everything.
After spending a year in Buffalo, NY for a Family Medicine Internship, she returned home to complete her residency at the University of Miami. The Jackson Memorial Hospital experience gave her the comfort to fluently speak medical Spanish. After completing her Residency, she signed on in a reputable Pembroke Pines multi-purpose practice, and there Ramsay practiced Family Medicine as well as Medical Research. This is where she focused on management of chronic medical illnesses.
Since 2015, Dr Ramsay has been with AssociatesMD. She has long term patients who have followed her from the Pembroke Pines office because they feel she has saved and/or improved their lives in a significant manner and is compassionate in her care. Her patients feel safe and comfortable, and appreciate her experience in knowing what works best and shifting when a new approach is necessary. It is a partnership where both parties are involved in caring/healing because neither can happen independently.
“I have been seeing Dr Ramsay for 11 years. Dr. Ramsay saved my life. I was so depressed after my father died, so obese, diabetic, and my cholesterol and blood pressure were through the roof. She put me on an antidepressant and other medications and now I have lost a lot of weight, am no longer diabetic and my numbers are normal. I also do not take several meds any longer because I am healthy now. I love her and wouldn’t go anywhere else.” Anonymous
Dr. Ramsay’s 3 Basic Principles:
#1.: Golden Rule. “Treat the patient like you want to be treated and treat them like they are family.”
#2. Live a Healthy and Spiritual Life. Don’t just talk the talk but walk the walk.
#3. Keep it simple. “Medicine and Insurance companies can get very complicated. It is my job to be a wise filter. I am here to understand, help diagnose, and treat and provide the best quality care for each and every patient.”
Dr. Andrea J. Ramsay is board certified in Family Medicine and has 25+ years of experience. She continues training in Integrative Medicine including Ayurvedic Medicine, supplements and herbal medicine, and supports healing in mental health/cognitive behavioral therapy.
