Where I see patients

Legacy Medical Group-Colon and Rectal Surgery

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

Hospitals Served: Legacy Emanuel Medical Center, Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, Legacy Meridian Park Medical Center, Legacy Mount Hood Medical Center

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 was WONDERFUL. In fact, I was telling my husband this morning that it was the best experience I've ever had with a Dr. I cannot say enough about her sincerity, patience, concern, and ability to understand and confirm how I was feeling while explaining things in a way that was easy to understand and digest. I did not feel rushed at all and was comfortable discussing very personal symptoms and asking questions. So thankful I was able to meet with her. Will defiantly recommend her to friends and family.

This was a first time visit to Dr. Rotramel - to see about a reversal of an ileostomy - so the test she ordered hasn't been done yet - she is a really good and kind doctor -

Offered me a rectal exam. Of course I said yes. Unusual? for an hemorrhoid issue? Above is a fair experience. Dr. is young & slightly insecure.

She is an excellent doctor - great rapport building, makes me comfortable, listens to my concerns, looks at me when talking, writes notes on paper so she can face me instead of facing a computer. It is appreciated.

I could not be happier with the care Dr. Rotramel provided. She is patient-centered, does not make you feel that she is in a hurry, answers all questions and is very personable. Her staff is equally courteous and professional.

I never wanted to have to go to a colo/rectal surgeon. I was terrified but Dr. Rotramel put ALl my fears away instantly. She is personable, warm, intelligent, funny and accommodating. While of course I wanted a highly skilled surgeon, I got so much more. She is a life saver and I am forever grateful to her and her team.

Dr. Rotramel is amazing. She defiantly looked at my chart before my visit and knew the results of the tests I had done. I find that that rarely happens with other providers I have seen. She explained everything and let me know what the next steps were in my treatment. It is one of the few times I have left the drs not feeling ashamed or guilty because of my medical issues. I am very thankful to have her as a provider.
