All visits with Dr. Ragins go smooth even with an upset 3yr old. She always answers our questions and concerns andgives us peace of mind. Dr. Ragins is very thourough and even though she was fully booked and running around from room to room, she didn't rush the appointment and hurry out until we were given all the information we needed. She is worth the 15-20 minute waits during "Flu season" :)
