Patient Comments (5)
in Valley Stream, NY |
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.
in Great Neck, NY |
Excellent ophthalmologist. Very caring, attentive, and always puts the patient first. He works with me in developing a plan, which I really appreciate.
in Astoria, NY |
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!

Super doctor - the NY Times is right to recommend him. Cannot say enough about how great he is!
in Long Beach, NY |
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.
