I went to Dr. Ragusa because my optometrist said I was suspect for glaucoma. Dr. Ragusa knows his stuff. He takes the time to explain everything and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend 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!
