Colton Ragsdale, MD – Pediatrician, Utah
Dr. Ragsdale was born and raised in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex in North Texas. He witnessed firsthand the beauty of Utah when he attended undergrad in Provo and met his wife. After medical school in Texas and residency in South Carolina, he made his way back to Utah to be closer to family and enjoy the stunning natural beauty, abundant outdoor activities, and family-friendly atmosphere that the Beehive State has to offer. He and his wife have a beautiful son and daughter with plans for a larger family in the future.A big kid at heart, Dr. Ragsdale is a huge fan of everything superhero/sci-fi/fantasy including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney, and the Marvel/DC universe. He enjoys hiking/camping, reading historical fiction, acapella singing, and has developed a recent love for gardening.
While Dr. Ragsdale enjoys all aspects of newborn care and general pediatrics he is especially drawn to obesity prevention, adolescent medicine, and urgent care. He chose to pursue Pediatrics because he found the most joy in taking care of both well and sick children while teaching parents how to prevent and manage the most common diseases of our time. His personal goal is to provide effective and evidence-based medicine in a timely and empathetic manner.
