Such a pleasant experience! I just went in for a check up, but I'm squeamish about eye stuff. Dr. Ragusa was very understanding and cool - definitely felt like I was in good hands. Nice, clean office and friendly staff!

Dr. Raguso is an excellent doctor. He is highly qualified, knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. My father needed eye surgery to remove cataracts and astigmatism. Dr. Raguso took great care of his eyes and went above and beyond his call of duty. I appreciate the entire staff (Elizabeth) (Karen) (Tamara) (Brenda) (Joel) and Dr. Raguso for going that extra mile for my dads eye sight and making the entire experience positive and wonderful for my father. I am so grateful that God blessed us with meeting Dr. Raguso. I recommend Dr. Raguso without any reservations.

I think Dr. Ragusa is an excellent Dr. he is patient, he takes time to get to know how you are how you have been since your last visit and any changes, he is #1 in my books. Need a top ophthalmologist here he is.

I was referred to Dr. Ragusa as a result of being diagnosed with cataracts and glaucoma. He came highly recommended and I immediately placed my trust in him based on his ability to clearly describe my conditions and what the course of treatment would be. He never rushed though the exam and made sure that my concerns were clearly explained. I have already recommended 2 friends to him who thanked me for having referred them to Dr. Ragusa.

Dr. Ragusa is an incredibly attentive and caring doctor. He took the time with me that I needed and did not rush at all. He is the the most thorough doctor I've ever had and because of that my eyes are doing incredibly well. So glad I found this doctor!

Dr. Ragusa is caring and thorough; he takes the time to listen, and explain clearly what your condition or prognosis is, what are treatment options (pros and cons) etc. Staff is also unusually friendly and helpful. The only downside is popularity and size of practice; wait times to see doctors and for various tests can be trying -- but it's worth it because Dr. Ragusa is so competent.
