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

The only instance that was negative about my appointment experience is that I didn't see evidence of great care taken to keep everyone in the building safe from Covid. No one was monitoring how many people piled into the elevators (there weren't even signs trying to instruct people), I didn't see air purifiers anywhere, and staff was only wearing loose-fitting surgical masks. At this point in the pandemic, I expect more precautions from a health system.

Nature of appointment is a delicate matter (She is a colon/rectal surgeon), she was extraordinarily careful in making me feel safe and feeling trust in her. Over the past 15 years, I have tried with 3 different doctors to take care of this issue, all shamed and humiliated me so severely I haven't gotten the care I need. It is only through critical need I have tried again to get the care I have long needed. My confidence in Dr. Rotramel to help me is at the highest level. I saw her care for my mother 4 years ago when my mother was extremely ill and close to end of life. I remembered Dr. Rotramel's respectful handling and her grace in bedside manner. Was a beautiful thing to watch so when my meed became urgent for care for this private topic, I knew I could rely on her competence and professionalism. Very grateful.

Dr. Rotramel is an excellent physician. She called to check up on me after hours, which I thought was above and beyond. I feel completely confident in her ability and advice. I am so fortunate to have her as my surgeon in a situation like this. She is one of a kind.

Dr. Rotramel was FANTASTIC. So easy to talk to, so good at explaining things, so skilled at making me feel comfortable, so knowledgable and reassuring. I literally have never had a better experience seeing a doctor (well, maybe she'd be a tie with one other). I cannot sing her praises highly enough. Absolutely STUPENDOUS.

I like Dr. Rotramel so much that I drive over the bridge from Vancouver and deal with the horrible traffic back home. She's worth it.
