About Me:

Colorectal surgeons address a part of the body that we dont often discuss outside of a medical or very private environment. The opportunity to provide a safe space for my patients to discuss and address what can be a sensitive set of medical issues is a key reason I decided to become a colorectal surgeon. I partner with my patients to better understand their medical problems and identify the best way to get them back to their work, personal and family lives. I learned that maximizing the benefits of surgery results from a patient-centered focus and, when needed, collaborating with other specialists to incorporate surgery into a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. My practice includes the treatment of colon and rectal cancer, IBS, as well as anorectal complaints what is traditionally regarded as Proctology. I also place a strong emphasis on prevention and surveillance, through colonoscopy and in some cases, regular office visits. Hobbies include: Hiking, Traveling, Music

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

Everything was great on the visit - I just had a test - probably too soon for results - my first visit to the doctor, so she had no history of me yet -

Dr Rotramel is the best. she's kind and thorough and explains information well. I'm very thankful she's overseeing my health. And, I'm so happy she shares baby pictures!The last two times I've been in, the office staff have been very friendly, but not super helpful. They say they can't book me a follow up because they are short staffed, then forget to call me back the next day to schedule.

I could not have asked for a better experience. Dr. Rotramel was compassionate, kind, interested and made an embarrassing concern very matter-of-fact. I am very appreciative of her phenomenal professionalism.

Alizah is an excellent provider. I've said from the get-go that I wish she did primary care on the side

Concerns: Receptionist seemed frazzled and gave me someone else's visit summary in error when I left the office. The referral for the next visit (for another specialist) and the visit summary on MyHealth took weeks to go through after that. Positive: Doctor was very kind and personable.

I did not see Dr. Rotramel, because I was at her office on time and when she did not see me on time I asked about how long she was running behind and I was not given an answer. At the one hour mark I decided I had waited long enough and left to get on with my day, as for all I know I had another hour to wait. Of course things happen to legitimately delay physicians but maybe a reasonable approach is to let the patient know how long the expected delay is, and offer to reschedule? The delay felt very disrespectful of my time, I had taken off work to be there by 3pm, but clearly I need not have done that as by 4pm I had seen no doctor. That's my paid sick time I am using. Now I will need to request a refund of my copay for the visit. Disappointing interaction.

You couldn't ask for any better care that I got on my office visit.
