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

Dr Rotramel is the best. The women at the front desk did not treat the older lady in front of me well.

i have seen an unfortunate amount of surgeons for my issue. Dr Rotramel is the only one who actually listened and found what i complaining about. it was such a relief to me to be heard. i now feel i am well on my way to being healed. i know if this surgery doesnt work, she wont give up! That too, is worth its weight in gold to me.

The doctor has a great sense of humor so besides being knowledgable and a good listener she lightened my fear for at the beginning I was very scared.

Dr. Rotramel is an excellent physician. She is caring, knowledgeable, and skilled. If something that she is unfamiliar with comes up, she will research the issue until she understands it and then she will explain it to me so that I can understand it. You are very lucky to have Dr. Rotramel in your group.
