Patient Comments (2)
in Homosassa, FL |
Dr. Ragsdell performed my total reverse shoulder replacement. I spent 3 days in Oak Hill Hospital and was surprised at how little discomfort I had almost immediately. I was discharged with an Rx for pain pills but never even had to open the bottle. I had excellent range of motion very quickly; both the in home rehab nurse and outpatient rehab therapist were surprised at how well my range of motion was (be sure to do your rehab). Dr. Ragsdell does not hesitate to answer any questions.
in Crystal River, FL |
I have now had shoulder repair surgery and a total knee replacement since I did my last review. Both surgeries were totally successful and I have recommended him to many people that have also had varies surgeries by Dr. Ragsdell. I have had many of them come to thank me for the referral. All have excellent results that they share with me. I can't tell you how fortunate we are to have this doctor available in Citrus County.
