I believe I as patient one when Dr. Ragusa joined MDVIP. Me and my family were the doctor's patients for many years. I can tell you I have never had a better doctor then Dr. Ragusa. The level of care he provides and his deep interest in our health and welfare make him one in a million.
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
When a patient joins my MDVIP-affiliated practice, often compared to a concierge medical practice, he/she becomes part of my healthcare family. I am available to patients whenever they need me, and appointments will never be rushed. By having a smaller practice size, I am able to spend quality time with each patient and provide many more services, including extensive screenings and blood tests.
I have admitting privileges at Unity Park Ridge Hospital and Rochester General Hospital, which are a part of the Rochester Regional Health System (RRHS). In the event you require hospitalization, I will be at your bedside directing your care as your hospitalist. I am your doctor in the office and in the hospital.
My practice is located in Greece, New York near route 104 and interstate 390 and serves the greater Rochester area with convenient access from Brockport, Gates, Spencerport, Chili, Hamlin and Hilton, as well as the eastern suburbs, like Henrietta, Brighton and Irondequoit.
In addition to general primary care, I specialize in many areas, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, COPD, hyperlipidemia (cholesterol) and hypertension (blood pressure). As a private doctor, I always strive to prevent and control disease so you can enjoy the best quality of life possible.
I am also an active part of the Italian-American community in Rochester and care for many patients who are more comfortable speaking Italian. As a Rochester resident for many decades, I welcome the opportunity to better the health of my hometown family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ragusa for 17 years. When he joined MDVIP I didnt have to think twice about joining him so I could continue being his patient. Dr. Ragusa is very thorough in examining his patients and very attentive to details. He doesnt hustle his patients in and out the door. He takes the time to listen to my concerns and talks to me about things other than my medical problems.… See more
Started with Dr. Ragusa 14 years ago and on my first appointment he said that he wasn't sure what was wrong with me but he would do his best to find out. That was 2004 and I have been receiving the best medical care throughout these 14 years. Thank you so much to Dr. Ragusa and his staff.
Thank you for taking such good care of both my mom and me. Knowing that you are the hub of our care -- by making sure you receive reports from all our doctors and coordinate our appointments and medicines is reassuring. I KNOW you are on top of what is going on and I can relax. Thank you, also, for always taking the time to answer our questions (until we really understand) by explaining in… See more
Dr. Ragusa has been my PCP for most of my life. I can't imagine going with anyone else. He is one of the best in the profession. A kinder more compassionate, and knowledgeable physician would be very hard to find.
Doctor Ragusa is the best. He is always there for me when I need him. Helps me find the best Doctors when I need them. He always make the time to see me and help me when I need him. Thank you so much for all your help and support.
Youve taken care of our family since you began practicing medicine. Youve been with us through many illnesses; from diagnosis to healing, and you stood beside us when everything had been done for our parents and there was nothing more anyone could do. You are the doctor I would choose to see me through all of this. And you have our sincere respect, gratitude and love.
