Marla Rowena Ramirez, MD, FAAP
Dr. Ramirez was born and raised in the Philippines. Her experiences there gave her a deep and lasting desire to help others and give back. She joined NWPC in 2013 and we are glad she ended up here with us! Dr. Ramirez enjoys walking through the day-to-day aspects of raising kids with her families and helping them find the joy and magic of childhood. For her, that means everything from well-care checkups to the days when something just isn’t quite right.
Dr. Ramirez and her husband have two young children, so parenting and life with kids in-tow takes up much of her time and interest outside of work. She and her husband both love to travel and exploring the world with their kids will keep them busy for years to come. If Dr. Ramirez does have a quiet moment, she likes to sit down with a good book. And, she thinks a new restaurant with the promise of good food is always worth checking out!
