Accepting new patients

I have worked as neurologist for 32 years and as a physician for 42 years. I teach budding providers, as well as, take care of patients. It has been a privilege,and an honor, to have done this thus far. I couldn't have accomplished this without the grace of God. I still strive to listen to my patients, their fears and anxieties, and try to assure them and how to take care of themselves.

Since being diagnosed with possible PD 3 1/2 years ago, and seeing 4 different neurologists, Dr. Ragland is the best doctor yet! He is very thorough and spends a great deal of time with me at each appointment making sure I understand every detail. If there is something he is unsure of, you can be certain that he will research it! I couldn't be more impressed!
Thanks for sharing such positive feedback about Dr. Ragland. We feel fortunate to have him on our team and will pass on your kind words to him. -Andrew

I have been very impressed with Dr. Ragland. He never makes me feel rushed, but rather that his time is mine during an appointment. He seems very thorough. I feel he truly wants to help me. He seems very knowledgeable and able to explain things in terms I can understand. I love his sense of humor. I don't think I have ever felt more comfortable in a doctor's office! Thank you Dr. Ragland. I am so glad to have met you.

I met with this doctor several times. Each meeting left me very upset with this so-called "professional's" lack of courtesy, his rude and self-important attitude. I am now seeing another neurologist.
I apologize for the delayed response to your review, I just learned of it today. Thanks so much for taking the time to share this important feedback with us. We take all patient concerns seriously and use the information to improve our care. We will bring your review to the attention of our leadership team. -Andrew
