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

My daughter sees Dr. James Fennell. She loves seeing him. He answers all of my questions and tells me everything I need to know about my daughter. She sees the same nurse almost everytime we are there and she is amazing. The other nurses we have see have been great as well. I love that the rooms have fun little decorations on the walls. Her favorite is the cars room.
