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

I have always had a good experience with Doctor Rotramel and consider her a caring and compassionate physician. She has treated me for (ten years?) and has always given me excellent care. I have never had a complaint with her or her care.

Dr. Rotramel was superb. In a warm and engaging way, she questioned me thoroughly. She talked to me reassuringly during the exam and was even able to dispel my fears. I left the office feeling that whatever the diagnosis after testing, the condition can be treated, and I have confidence that with Dr. Rotramel I am in the most capable hands. I would prefer her to any other doctor. I appreciated the length of the appointment as well as the thoroughness.

My visit with Dr. Rotramel was a very positive experience. She is obviously extremely knowledgeable, but is also able to connect with patients on their level in a very clear and respectful manner. She is engaging and a great listener- she also has a good sense of humor, which definitely helps in this specialty! I would highly recommend her to others.

Excellent physician - need more like her in the field! Compassionate, knowledgeable, not rushed, always cheery. On a broader scale, keep the excellent culture going at Legacy - don't let OHSU quash it, please!

I work at another hospital In PDX And choose to go outside of network to see my provider. She's kind, thoughtful and genuinely cares about my health outcomes.

It was a good visit and she is a great Dr, however I had to wait 4 months for an appointment.

Had difficulty at main hospital entrance getting to correct department. Security staff not helpful or wanting to help direct to correct department. Resulted in my getting wrong info not what doctor had recommended.

The radio in the waiting room was uncomfortably loud and really unnecessary

  Sep 19, 2023
Dr Rotramel listened carefully to my concerns and explained clearly how she would address them. She was kind, had a sense of humor, sensitive to my needs and convincing in the expertise she had to address them. I came away feeling confident in the course she recommended.

My Doctor really cared about me and my pain. She offered many options in how to address future care. I really like this Doctor.

The worst part was the "hold," experience when I called the office to see what special preparations I needed for the test she wanted to give me. The best part was the delightful doctor and her staff! It was a very positive medical experience.

  Jul 11, 2023
Dr Rotramel was by far the most sensitive physician I have seen recently. Gave me her undivided attention, answered all my concerns & put my mind at ease with her recommendations.

  Jul 11, 2023
Dr. Rotramel was not the first physician in this office I met with, but she took over my case and performed the surgery I required-and I'm so grateful to have been in her care! I hope to retain my positive outcome, but if it becomes necessary I will not hesitate to contact her. I highly recommend this office and most especially Dr. Rotramel.
