Dr. Ragutu is a very humane doctor. She is available to her patients at all times and insists on being reached anytime if the situation of the child is concerning. Genuinely listens to your concerns/questions and answers them all and provides you the best possible option. During the current covid19 situation, she didn't hesitate to check up our baby over facetime (on a sunday) and also in person as we felt face-to-face checkup would be more revealing of my child's condition. I would not hesitate even a little to recommend Dr. Ragutu to any parent for their child's care. Thank you

Dr Raguthu has been great with my two boys! Availability, staff friendliness, and patient care are high quality. She and her staff are approachable for kids and parents. They always take time to explain procedures to my boys and I. Front office scheduling and reminder calls are on the mark!

She is an exceptional doctor. Great with kids. Doesn’t rush through. Takes her time to listen and assess. She even called back on a weekend when we had an issue with our child. I would definitely trust her expertise and judgment.
