Dr. Ramirez specializes in the treatment of thoracic and neuroendocrine malignancies.

His clinical and research interests include neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) and lung cancer.  He has a specific interest in NETs of the lung ranging from diffuse idiopathic neuroendocrine tumor cell hyperplasia (DIPNECH) and carcinoid tumors to small cell lung cancer and other high-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas. He is active in clinical trial design including investigator-initiated trials. He was previously the medical oncologist for the New Orleans Louisiana Neuroendocrine Tumor Specialists (NOLANETS) and spent nearly a decade with a main focus on NET patients and NET research.  He enjoys teaching residents and fellows and has given many lectures for the scientific community on the topics of NETs and lung cancers.
