Dr. Rago is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He is very warm, friendly & personable person. He is thorough throughout my visit. He took time to listen to my concern as well as explained the surgery procedure clearly to me. My carpal tunnel surgery went very well from the first day. The office staffs afe very nice and accomodative. The surgery center is very clean and the staffs there are awsome. One even took me to the car on the wheelchair. I highly reccomend Dr. Rago.
