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 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.

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.

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.

I'm an RN of 43 years so I'm very picky about care. Dr. Rotramel & staff are the best. I'm usually a patient with a different system, but I went outside of my usual system to have Dr. Rotramel.

Dr Rotramel is amazing.

  Jan 20, 2023
She was really trauma-informed. She took time to explain what she would be doing, answer questions I had along the way, and provided results in a way that made sense. She was sensitive to how the procedure may be difficult for me given a history of trauma, and she was compassionate in her approach to ensure I still got the necessary test done, while feeling comfortable.

Provider was excellent in giving me all information and thoughts on follow up care with added comfort to call if I need anything.

Dr was amazing, especially because going in for a concern in an area like the rectum is embarrassing. She was so kind and so attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend her to anyone

As with every visit I have had w/Dr. Rotramel, she is conscientious, concerned, knowledgeable - She has been a fierce advocate for me and I have no doubt she had my well being at the forefront of her mind each time I saw her.
