My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been a physician specializing in internal medicine and primary care for over 20 years. I am committed to providing a superior level of personalized care, focused on prevention of disease, rather than waiting to treat it. This proactive approach is not possible in so many medical practices today.

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's for many years. I have referred and even sponsored relatives and close friends to allow them to be under his care.

As it happens, right now my significant other is going… See more
