Colton Ragsdale

About Colton:

Dr. Ragsdale was born and raised in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and loved growing up in North Texas. He attended undergrad at BYU where he met his wife, Jessica.

After medical school in Texas and residency in South Carolina, he made his way back to Utah to be closer to family and also enjoy the natural beauty and family-friendly atmosphere of Utah. He and his wife have 5 children. A big kid at heart, Dr. Ragsdale is a huge fan of LEGO and everything superhero/sci-fi/fantasy including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney, and the Marvel/DC universe. He enjoys hiking/camping, playing video games, acapella singing, and Ultimate Frisbee.

While Dr. Ragsdale enjoys all aspects of newborn care and general pediatrics, he is especially drawn to obesity prevention and behavioral health (ADHD, Depression, Anxiety). 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.

Parent Feedback

We arrived early for our daughter's appointment and were able to get in fast. The nurse quick and efficient and the doctor was as well. We got the medicine prescribed for our daughter and were out of there a minute after our original appointment time. The manner of staff was friendly and caring, as always. I appreciated the speed as it was a later appointment so we weren't out too late.
