Dr Ragel is very informed in his specialty. He has continued to treat my back pain after my lumbar fusion a year ago. Very good and positive doctor.

Dr. Ragel asked appropriate and informational questions; he was open in the dialogue seemed to be honest yet cautiously optimistic in discussing the potential treatment options for my long term back issues. He took ample time to ask and answer questions; was familiar at least to some degree with my case before a first appointment; didn't appear to be in a rush, even taking a short time to forge a surface aquaintance during the appointment. I might add more later, but thus far I'm happy.

I like him immediately when he said he did not think surgery was my answer. His availability is good and it was easy to make a first appointment.

Dr Ragel treated me with respect & concern. He was professional and also took time to listen & understand what my symptoms were and how they affected my life. He took the time to go over my MRI with me & what the treatment options were. I would highly recommend him!
