Arlette Ramos – Patient Coordinator

Hello, I am Arlette Ramos, Patient Coordinator at ColoWell America.
One day, I promised myself to contribute to making the world a better place. I love working at ColoWell America because it gives me the opportunity to help our patients understand the medical process for greater comprehension and insight into our institution, its function, and its medical scope. In my role at this clinic, I enjoy helping to find the best solutions for our patients and providing the excellent service they deserve.
I have been studying psychoanalysis for seven years because I am fascinated by how the human mind works and aim to enhance relational fluency. This leads to effective work, which is our goal—to provide ideal medical service to meet our patients’ needs.

I studied Art in Photography in Mexico, my home country, and I love exhibiting my photos. I speak Spanish, English, and French.
