Saw my child in August of 2019, reviewed MRI and decided to go against recommendations to do a cerebral angiogram. He said everything looked great, to ignore the recommendations. Well, it ended up being that she got worse, and a different doctor did the angiogram. Which showed extensive clots diffuse through the brain. This man is a killer. Stay away from this crook.

Dr. Ragheb and his staff are Angels, they have saved my life. God placed him and his staff in my life at the perfect time. Also thanks to the neurologist Ernesto Coscarella that introduced me to them. Because of them I’m present today enjoying my children everyday! Thank you for your professionalism, understanding and loving care. Blessings

I have a very unfortunate history with Dr. Ragheb. I don't have enough room to explain. Suffice it to say, he operated on my tethered cord, and now I have a nerve disease. He had to operate twice because he made a mistake during first surgery. I now have a debilitating case of arachnoiditis thanks to his poor judgment call. Thanks Dr. Ragheb.
