Believe me.... I understand what you are going through.

Not too long ago my health went into a free fall. It took over a year and several specialists to figure out that I had been infected with Lyme. By the time we got the appropriate diagnosis, so much damage had been done. Both to my body and my life. I had to close my practice because I could not function. I had lost short term and long term memory. I could not remember my patients names or why they were in my office.

I only had enough energy to do light activities for only about 2 hrs a day. I was having severe Deja Vu episodes, panic attacks, and depression swings were I would get suicidal. We had to sell our home, move into a small apartment with our two kids, and I couldn't work. Now I had plenty of free time, but I couldn't even enjoy just hanging out with my kids, because their precious voices sounded like a war explosions going off in my head. So I spent most of my time secluded in my bedroom wondering how much longer I had to suffer before it would all just end.

All this from a Lyme infection and its little friends. My wife and I had been consulting with 5 different Lyme experts around the country. They were all great doctors, and they did the best they could. But, what each one kept telling my wife was "your husband is one of the most difficult cases I have ever seen." Every one of their "PROTOCOLS" did solve a piece of the equation for me. However, I would start to get better, then I would crash.

One of the biggest frustrations I hear when meeting a new patient is "Doctors aren't listening"

Although the doctors were competent in their field of study and they were doing their best, they were NOT listening to MY story. They weren't getting to know ME. They were missing out on the clues that were embedded into the story of my life, that lead me down this path I was on. In between the crashes of feeling like I was getting better to feeling like I was back to square one, I would learn a little more. I can't say I did it all on my own, but I discovered a pathway to recovering that was sustainable and working for ME! 

My biggest revelation is this: The PROTOCOL is THERE ARE NO PROTOCOLS.

Oh sure using a "protocol" may help some people and can be a good starting point, but when you are dealing with a tough case, and I don't care what it is called: Lyme, Neurodegeneration, Auto immune disease, chronic pain, etc., the Pathway that will lead to YOUR recovery will be different than someone else with the same condition. Based on Your story, Your life, and Your clues. I now use what I learned in my own recovery, following Pathways, to help those with the toughest conditions.

There was a time when the family doctor really knew You.

The doctor not only knew you, but knew about your family and what was going on in your life.  He made house calls, or you went to his house. He was like part of your family and you were part of his.  He took the time to get to  know your story and the subtle clues that tells him how to adjust the "protocol" and create a specific pathway for you.  That is what I aim to bring back.  

My patients have always said I listened to them when other doctors just ran them through their clinic, but now having gone through my own life changing experience -it has ignited a passion in me to raise the bar.

The Challenge with Today's Healthcare Model....

Large clinics / hospitals have huge overheads and need to meet budgets to stay open. Add to that insurance based care - meaning the care you receive is based on what insurance will cover. Next, you have long wait times and very little doctor face to face time. The end result is you get very little care for the money you spend. Its not fun for the doctor either.

Early on I build a large upper cervical chiropractic clinic in Northwest Houston. Even with hiring an additional doctor, we had to have our patient visit times down to 7.5 minutes. That's right 7.5 minutes to see a patient and stay on schedule. Sure, we helped tons of people but I lost a lot of what I went into practice for in the first place; Helping patients AND developing relationships with my patients so I wouldn't miss those subtle clues in their lifestyle etc. that could be indicators of a health disaster just down the path.

Enter the micropractice

A micropractice is a healthcare practice that generally runs with little or no staff and utilizes technology to keep overhead low which allows the doctor to see fewer patients and spend not just more but Quality time with each one. I want to get to know you and your family and spend time developing relationships instead of the "treadmill" of production based model of healthcare.

I can't say enough how this has improved the quality of my life . .

When I first came to see Dr. Robert I was a mess. I had pain everywhere and could not sleep or get comfortable. I had headaches all the time and in general felt lousy. Now I am pain free at most of the time. When I get sleep I get restful sleep and not just tossing and turning all night. I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue and this has really helped these symptoms, too. I can’t say enough for how this has improved my quality of life.

I know that through a mutual friend, God sent me to Dr. Robert and I thank Him everyday! I was truly at the end of my rope, as they say. I was afraid that there was not any help for me. God and Dr. Robert changed that for me!

Even after the first adjustment I noticed a big difference in how I felt

I started coming to see Dr. Rob because I was having chronic neck and back pain from an auto accident a few years ago. Even after the first adjustment I noticed a big difference in how I felt. Since continuing care I have noticed over time how the neck and back pain have resolved. It has been a really great experience.

I have been able to run again, exercise, and I don't worry about my neck

I had severe neck pain. I could not carry on any normal activities. I was always in pain. When I found Dr. Rob I was relieved of my pain, even on the first visit. Since starting care I have been able to run again, exercise and I don't worry about my neck. I'm not worried about doing anything like before. I am so truly blessed that I found him. He is friendly, kind and he answered all my questions. He will help you.

The biggest change has been my migraines going away..

Before coming to Dr. Rob I had multiple issues with gastroenteritis, a lot of back pain and migraines. Once I started coming to Dr. Rob I was able to get rid of all of these. I am now able to enjoy my life again. The biggest change has been my migraines going away. Before seeing Dr. Rob they used to rule my life.

I am really pleased with my results

Prior to seeing Dr. Rob some of my physical conditions that were a constant annoyance were a chronic pain in my right hip, sore and tired ankles, a sore neck, and a chronic sinus congestion that I have for over ten years that caused restriction in my breathing. I have noticed a major difference in all areas of affliction, and to my surprise I can breathe without any nose spray or decongestants. I am really pleased with my results and look forward to the future.

Dr. Rob's care has changed my life!

DR. ROB'S CARE HAS CHANGED MY LIFE! It resolved chronic left neck pain and arm numbness, lower back pain, PMS, ear pain, and urinary frequency. Sometimes the pain from these conditions was mild and sometimes severe. I have more energy and feel my chronic fatigue has mostly been resolved.

Dr. Rob gave me my life back after trying everything possible to help with horrible gastrointestinal problems nutritional deficiencies autoimmune issues and even with a rare disease called CVID Common Variable Immune Deficiency. I was so impressed with his compassion, understanding and going above and beyond to help me as that simply does not exist in the medical field. He is always there for his patients and I feel blessed to be treated by him!

Total Recovery From Trigeminal Neuralgia

I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia in January of 2003. I suffered with pain that I never thought possible. I would sit curled up in a fetal position and cry for hours. I truly wished I could just die. The medical profession didn’t know what caused this horrible disease, or how to get rid of it.

I lost about 4 months of work. I would get up and go to work, but within about one or two hours I would call my wife to come get me.

Since seeing Dr. Ramirez for treatment I have been able to remain pain free and medicine free. I am very grateful to Dr. Rob for the work that he does and his willingness to work to help me.
