What People Say About Dr. Thorir Ragnarsson, MD
Reply
He spent time with me discussing my back injury, the surgery and likely outcome. He was very reassuring and listened well to my concerns. I was extremely happy with him and the quality of the surgery and would definitely recommend him to others needing back surgery.
