I went to Dr Ragel after having zero success at OHSU. I feel confident in his plan for me and feel like I am finally going to get some answers. He was friendly, knowledgeable, thorough and confident. I feel like my issues will be dealt with FINALLY.

Without going through treatment yet, I am reassured that we have found the right doctor. I don't have much to share yet, but Dr. Ragel has a very calming demeanor in a very stressful situation.
