The diagnosis, treatment / surgery, and post op physio was so poorly executed hat I required an ADDITIONAL surgery an extensive physiotherapy to fix the damage caused by Rago. A terrible physician who is clearly in it or the money. The hour long waits to see him, and his poor physio therapist, and equipment say it all.
Dr. Rago performed carpal tunnel surgery on my right hand about 8 years ago which prior to the surgery was constantly numb and/or painful. The surgery tool all of ten minutes and in six weeks it was healed with practically no scar. It has never given me problems since. I'm going to have the left hand done too. Dr. Rago is the top man in his field, and a very nice and caring person too.
