I went to see Dr. Ramirez after an auto accident with neck and shoulder pain. Dr. Ramirez reviewed all my x-rays and explained to me what was causing my pain and what was the best treatment to help me get back feeling great again. I was having headaches that days and he relieved me of them that first visit and showed me what to do when I get another one. He was gentle and compassionate and listened to all my concerns. I’m glad to know that I will get the care I need. Thank you, for the being the best chiropractor in Tampa.
I was in tremendous pain and hesitant at first to visit a chiropractor. All I can say is ‘Why on Earth did I wait so long?’ Dr. Ramirez listened to my concerns and discussed my options. He has a very caring manner and explained exactly what he was doing. He is knowledgeable, personable and alleviated the excruciating pain I was in. Thank you for your compassion, skills and for making me whole again.

If you are seeking a physician that is caring, informed and professional, then I highly recommend Dr. Ramirez. He looked at what he thought could be impeding my progress. His ability to utilize different techniques has had a very positive effect resulting in my gaining additional range of motion with less pain.

I had a proximal humerus break in my left humerus in Feb 2016. I did not have surgery initially and went through physical therapy to try to regain my range of motion. Unfortunately, scar tissue formed and I had to have an arthroscopic release in Jun 2017 and continue physical therapy. The therapists have been excellent at continual manipulation but progress was limited. I had Dr. Ramirez look at what he thought could be impeding my progress. His ability to utilized different techniques have had a very positive effect, resulting in my gaining additional range of motion with less pain. It has been a long road to recovery but I could not have completed it without the dedicated staff at Florida Orthopaedic Institute. Dr. Ramirez has been the catalyst to move me further toward my goal of regaining range of motion. Everyone at the FOI Bloomingdale Therapy center is GREAT – from the office staff to the professional therapists to the staff physician, Dr. John Ramirez. They are always so helpful and pleasant. Even though this has been a trying experience, they made it as pleasant and fun as possible. The number 1 priority of the Bloomingdale team is always focused on your well being and helping you recover from your injury.
Following my Total Knee Replacement, I had quite a bit of discomfort in my pelvis, thighs and buttocks. Dr. Bernasek’s associates suggested I may benefit from working with FOI’s chiropractors, Dr. Ramirez and Dr. Reina to expedite my recovery. I worked with Dr. John Ramirez for a few visits and found him to be a great help. He studied my X-rays and discovered my Sacroilliac joint and pelvis were a bit out of whack. With Dr. Ramirez’s exercises and gentle pressure, I have made good progress. I intend to continue strengthening my core. I am very grateful for his kind, gentle and oh so thoughtful professional care. He’s a great fellow!
As someone who lives with extreme hyper-mobility, like Cirque de Soleil performers, I have avoided seeing a chiropractor all my life. Keeping my joints in place is a goal I work hard to achieve, so the thought of someone using brute force to manipulate them is terrifying. However, a vertebra in my neck slipped out of place and, try as I might, I couldn’t get it back where it belonged.
So, I went to see a chiropractor. She agreed that she needed to be careful, so she did only the minimum, which didn’t work. Chiropractor #2 threw caution to the wind and not only scared me badly by very roughly manipulating my body, he conceded defeat after working on me for only three minutes.
Since a close relative with hyper-mobility spent five years as a patient in the Bloomingdale PT office of FOI, I knew that I could trust the people there to help me without hurting me. After getting a prescription from Dr. Jackson, I saw Dr. Ramirez. He took the time to learn my history, looked at my x-rays, and agreed that hyper-mobility complicated my care. He spent about 45 minutes checking for nerve damage, improving blood flows, and loosening surrounding muscles. Then he very gently turned my head to the side and the vertebra (which had been out for four months), slipped back into place with no pain at all. He then checked out my posture and even my jaw and made additional adjustments, again with no pain. I followed up with PT for several weeks and then saw Dr. Ramirez again. My neck has recovered and I am extremely pleased! I highly recommend this very fine chiropractor.
