Yury Ragoza, DO, is a family medicine physician, who practices at UT Health North Campus Tyler and UT Health East Texas Physicians in Lindale. “I got into healthcare because of my desire to help people by helping them heal. I really like the challenge of a difficult diagnosis and being able to be part of an important aspect of patients’ lives.”
Dr. Ragoza chose to practice family medicine because of the diversity that comes with it. “I like treating a variety of patients and conditions. My care philosophy is treating the patient as a whole, focusing on mind, body and spirit and taking into account the patient’s wishes, cultural background and religious beliefs. I also incorporate osteopathic manipulations in my visits when appropriate.”
He earned his bachelor’s degree in biology from Texas A&M University in College Station and his degree in osteopathic medicine from the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. He also completed his family medicine residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Tyler.

Everything was done as I expected. Dr. Ragoza is easy to talk with. I have had appointments with him before. If i didn't think he was competent I would ask for someone else, but I have been seeing him for several years. By the way, I will be 99 yrs of age this Friday 12 Aug.

I love Dr. Ragoza and staff.
Everyone is friendly.
Dr. Ragoza spends time with me, listens to my questions, and concerns. Explains in detail. I never feel rushed.
He focuses on you and your concerns.
In one office visit, while examining one issue he instantly noticed something else. He dealt with that issue.
He feels like more of a friend than a doctor.
I highly recommend Dr. Ragoza.

We just moved to the area, and I was so worried because we have had the same Primary Physician for over a decade now. I'm no longer worried. We found Dr. Ragoza. Dr. Ragoza is very attentive and cared for my issue. He listened to my issue and addressed it promptly and properly.
