Thank you!

August 28, 2014

I always feel I have had the best of care

August 25, 2014

Excellent experience--very much appreciated.

August 20, 2014

Dr. Ragle took the time to contact the orthopedic center for them to try to fit me into their tight schedule. He was able to do so.

August 16, 2014

I don't think I have ever had a doctor show sincere concern about my health and took time to explain things to me. I will definitely return to see Dr Ragle.

August 07, 2014

Love Dr. Ragle. He is the best listener I have ever met

August 06, 2014

i HAVE EVERY CONFIDENCE IN HAVING DR. RAGLE AS MY DOCTOR. HE TAKES TIME TO GO OVER TEST RESULTS AND ANSWER QUESTIONS. HE NEVER MAKES ME FEEL I AM TAKING TOO MUCH TIME. I TELL HIM I APPRECIATE THAT BECAUSE I KNOW HOW BUSY HE IS

August 06, 2014

Dr Ragle has always been very personable and made me feel very comfortable with answering any questions I may have or to explain any treatment or followup that may be needed. I don't feel rushed and he is very patient.

August 05, 2014

Very happy with Dr. Ragle ... no complaints. Have recommended him to friends. Always accessible and available to answer questions.

August 04, 2014

This was a WellU exam. No health problems were discussed.

August 02, 2014

GREAT

July 29, 2014

Dr. Ragle is excellent. He takes the time to listen to me and address any concerns I have. I like that he considers my input when making a plan on how to address my medical needs.

May 30, 2014

May 24, 2014

Dr. Ragle is a good and patient listener. He encourages questions. He's up on the literature. Good visit.

May 16, 2014

dr ragal has all my confidince he has provin to me to be extremly attentiv as well as knolagabul to all my needs

May 15, 2014

If care was this good elsewhere, Americans would be a happy bunch.

May 12, 2014

good

May 07, 2014

I feel I will make progress improving my health, and believe going from a general care doctor to an internal medicine physician will be a real benefit, and my experience with the doctor and those who assist him has been very good.

May 06, 2014

I really liked that Dr. Ragle involved me in the decision to add a new medication. He told me why he thought it would be beneficial and gave me the pros and cons of treatment. He treated me with respect and like I was an important part of the decision. I really like that he didn't talk down to me or assume that I had no idea of what he was talking about. I left feeling like we were friends and a team working together to solve my health issues. I have already recommended Dr. Ragle to several of my friends. The university needs more doctors like him.

May 06, 2014

The doctor seemed hurried. There may be too many patients for too little time?

April 21, 2014

Dr. Ragle is the best dr I have ever had. He's patient, thorough, treats me with respect and cares about my health now and down the road.

April 15, 2014

Dr. Ragle is so caring and so easy to talk to.

April 14, 2014

Dr. Ragel was very informative and listed to my concerns.

April 11, 2014

I thought that Dr. Ragle was very helpful. He took a lot of time to talk to me about a variety of health concerns that I had and made suggestions for treatment for everything I brought up. He also respected my decisions of whether or not I wanted to pursue the treatments, since they were mostly for symptoms.

April 10, 2014

good

April 09, 2014

I have already recommended Dr. Ragle to several people

April 03, 2014

I have seen my doctor several times and he always provides me with appropriate help and information about my problem. We discuss any problems and develop a solution that fits my situation.

April 02, 2014

I had asked Dr. Ragle for a referral to an endocrinologist for help with hashimotos thyroiditis, also so I could get an ultrasound of my thyroid. Dr. Ragle explained that he could manage my thyroid levels without a referral. Given that my symptoms had taken such a dramatic turn (several fainting spells) over the last month, I would have wanted to have some more diagnostics done. I guess I'll wait and see whether the new Rx will help to end the fainting. Thank you.

March 28, 2014

Dr Ragle was excellent. He took the time to discuss the pros and cons of various medicine options for several medical conditions and included me in all decisions. Very please with the experience.

March 28, 2014

I was very satisfied with the service I got from everyone.

March 28, 2014

Dr. Ragel listens to me, has a plan of attack on my issue, and always tells me when I'm leaving if I don't get better, or need something else, or another appointment to call him right away. He is an excellent doctor, I'm glad I found him after seeing another doctor who treated me for 14 years and retired, I was referred to Dr. Ragle. I feel very lucky as he's kept me out of the hospital in the last year with treatment.

March 27, 2014

Dr. Ragle has a very pleasant rapport which put me at ease as I shared my medical woes.

March 16, 2014

Care was informative and professional. I felt very comfortable.

March 13, 2014

Dr. Ragel is great. He takes time to explain things to me and I feel listened to.

March 10, 2014

I also appreciate the prompt responses that Dr. Ragle has given me in MyChart. Often I am in northern Idaho caring for my elderly parents and can't come into the office to discuss concerns. Dr. Ragle has very kindly answered any concerns I've had with great speed and attention.

February 27, 2014

I appreciated the manner in which Dr. Ragle treated me as he listened to me talk about how I felt.

February 21, 2014

Dr Ragle is understanding and very nice. I would recommend him to all my family and friends. He shows concern, patience and respect.

February 10, 2014

Dr. Ragle was kind and caring. I feel very comfortable speaking with him about my health issues and am not afraid to ask questions. I have recommended him as a physician to my co-worker.

February 03, 2014

I have recommended Dr. Ragle to others.

February 03, 2014

I need larger numbers than five!

January 26, 2014

Dr. Ragle has always been very patient and understanding of my husband's and my relationship and inside jokes. He is willing to humor us.

January 21, 2014

We already recommended him to others.

January 17, 2014

I am so happy that a pharmacist recommended this physician to me. I hope he never leaves! I really appreciate the manner in which I feel I can talk to him about a concern & I don't feel like he is rushing through my exam to get to the next patient.

January 13, 2014

I drive from Lehi to The Madsen Clinic to see my primary Dr because he is the best

December 05, 2013

good

November 11, 2013

November 06, 2013

Dr. Ragle was very helpful.

November 05, 2013

I thought both Dr. Ragle and the Med Student, Jason, were thorough, professional, kind, and patient, responding to all my questions and conjectures thoroughly and thoughtfully. They both seemed to respect my concerns and my wishes. I was pleased with the kind of care I received. My 'good' rating for 'confidence' results from only having one appointment so far. Trust and confidence will build as I get to know him over time.

November 05, 2013

Dr. Ragle is very efficient at his job; and I have complete confidence in him. I always feel like he is genuinely interested in me. He is kind, gentle, and is an every-day sort of man that anyone would feel comfortable around. Never arrogant! He is a very good listener, and does not get in a big hurry to impart his knowledge on you. in my opinion Nathan Ragle is a very good MD.

October 28, 2013

Dr. Ragle and his staff are excellent listeners

October 25, 2013

This was a very good experience as usual. The staff are kind and considerate and the Dr. is the best.

October 21, 2013

Madsen Clinic and Dr. Ragle constitute my very best medical experience

October 21, 2013

I love the email feature in MyChart! The provider is very good at responding and clarifying.

October 18, 2013

Dr. Ragle always gave me excellent advice and on several occasions helped me take care of some matters that didn't fall under his responsibility. He always did what he said he would. The results of tests were sent to me promptly with his explanation of what they meant as related to my condition.

October 17, 2013

physician ordered a medication but somehow it didn't transmit via e scribe unable to get med at pharmacy on Friday afternoon...checked on Monday still not there...by then symptoms better,however it was not an essential med never obtained med.

October 14, 2013

I was pleased to have found a primary care physician in Dr. Ragle. I found his manner attentive and caring.

September 30, 2013

I felt like the physician was questioning why I came to see him. I have a history of problems with my kidneys and was trying to be proactive about my pain, but he seemed to think I was wasting his time. He didn't have any advice and I never heard back from the clinic about my specimen. Overall this was a poor experience and I left feeling like I wasted a copay and an hour of my work day.

September 30, 2013

Dr Ragle remembered me from my wife's visit and was very friendly and concerned

September 25, 2013

I really like the concerns he has for me.

September 24, 2013

Dr. Ragle is one of the best PCPs I have ever had.

September 24, 2013

I'm turning into an old lady who is very picky about doctors. I'm afraid I've fired a few over the years, so i was quite pleased to discover the fresh young Dr. Ragel. He listens carefully and asks just the right questions that cause me to think. He is friendly, knowledgable--i was surprised he could discuss malaria prophylaxis in a town where relatively few people need it--and intelligent.

September 21, 2013

Have recommended Dr. Ragle to several people and will continue to do so...we just hope that his career keeps him here!

August 30, 2013

I am pleased that Dr. Ragle listens and honestly considers a range of options; yet applies treatment slowly and conservatively seeing how time works its magic.

August 28, 2013

This is a new provider for me and I am very impressed

August 23, 2013

Appreciate that Dr. Ragle is willing to work with me to controlling my moderately high cholesterol levels by allowing me to try diet, exercise, and natural supplements (instead of a statin drug).

August 21, 2013

I feel very comfortable with Dr. Ragle.

August 19, 2013

Very good listener and undertanding of my situation

August 14, 2013

This was my first visit to this provider. I felt like he really was genuine in his care. He listened to my concerns/questions & I felt like he was not rushing through my appointment. I have already recommended him to family & co-workers.

August 07, 2013

They were very kind and concerned with our health care.

July 29, 2013

Having a care provider that is able and willing to partner with me is of great concern to me. My care provider is able to be part of a partnership that is focused on my care and increased understanding of my medical needs.

July 16, 2013

good

July 14, 2013

I feel very comfortable talking to Dr. Ragle, he listens to what I have to say and answers questions I have.

June 17, 2013

I have recommended Dr Ragle to several people

June 15, 2013

I've been going to this doctor for awhile now and even though it can be months or even years between visits I always feels like he remembers me and is personally concerned when it comes to my care and I can come to him with any problem and if he can't help he finds or recommends another great doctor that can. I'm not just another patient that he has to deal with I know he cares and loves what he does and that makes me totally confident in him as my doctor.

June 11, 2013

This was a very good experience and the exam was very thorough. I had some questions about a change of medication that the doctor. The doctor explored the medication options and explained advantages of each and recommended a specific one that would best suit my situation. He was very personable and concerned about my needs.

June 10, 2013

Overall a very good experience

June 07, 2013

May 28, 2013

Dr. Nathan Ragle took the time to access my medical concerns and followed up the next day with me through his medical assistant Hilary.

May 27, 2013

Dr Ragle was very easy to talk too. He listened to me explain my issues then asked questions to further understand my comments. He addressed each of my issues and offered a course of action he felt needed to be taken. He offered to have Heather make appointments for me to see other doctors at the end of my visit, this was very helpful in following through with the procedures I needed to do.

May 17, 2013

Dr. Ragle was so easy to talk to and he showed concern about me. He explained in detail all the concerns I had. I felt very comfortable talking to him.

March 26, 2013

Dr. Ragle always involves me and makes sure I understand.

March 12, 2013

February 04, 2013

Dr. Ragle was kind and thoughtful, and seemed to genuinely care about my health concerns. I felt that he asked appropriate questions and responded to my additonal questions. This was the first time I saw him, and am glad I made this choice for my primary care physician. We discussed the benefits & risks of current & future medications, and he encouraged me to call back or go to the website if I had any other questions or concerns. I felt comfortable during this appointment and I will definitely see Dr. Ragle again.

August 14, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Ragle to several friends and family members. All have had a great experience.

August 14, 2012

I left with more questions and concerns than what I arrived with. I was disappointed that the care provider could not ascertain the cause of my problem(s). I feel as though I have to do the research to figure out what is ailing me, and yet I am paying for a service that is inadequate.

July 30, 2012

My experience with the physician, as with his nurse, was exemplary. His respectful, pleasant, relaxed, and informative interaction makes me feel confident and appreciative.

July 16, 2012

Been coming to Madsen Clinic for about five years. Best medical experience I've ever had

July 13, 2012

Showed genuine concern and did not make me feel like he was rushed. I feel very comfortable with this care provider as my primary care physician

July 06, 2012

Dr. Ragle is very knowledgeable and my confidence level in him as a doctor is absolute. He takes the time to address medication, symptoms, treatment plan and answers questions that I may have. When I leave there, I know what I have and what I need to do

June 18, 2012

I am always impressed with the professionalism of the staff and how procedures are explained in detail. I feel that Dr. Ragle and the resident doctors take time to explain in detail different methods of improving the quality of my husband who has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and make recommendations for improving his quality of life, even though my husband refuses to do what is recommended. They also do not talk in medical terms that I do not understand. Dr. Ragle is a wonderful doctor.

June 11, 2012

This was a follow-up visit and we are tracking my blood pressure. I feel that Dr. Ragle is on top of my health needs and very proactive in terms of tracking my progress.

June 04, 2012

Dr. Ragle is a fantastic physician. He is thorough, clear in his explanation of any treatments and very personable. I appreciate him immensely.

May 08, 2012

AOK

May 04, 2012

I realize that Dr. Ragle probably spent more than the time he has alotted to each appointment to address my concerns and it was very much appreciated.

April 26, 2012

I would highly recommend Dr. Ragle to my friends. Whenever I visit Dr. Ragle's office, he doesn't run me through the examination room like I was just another number, but seems genuinely concerned for my well being.

April 18, 2012

Nathan Ragle is a find and a prize. I consider myself very fortunate to have had him referred to me by another one of his clients who is a friend of mine!

April 11, 2012

I've now been to this doctor twice now. The first time he assured me I had strep throat, when I called back a week later, still not feeling better, I was told by the nurse that bot of my test came back negative for strep. Then when I got sick again recently I decided to give him another shot. He told me I had a virus and that it would go away over time with the use of an counter medication. I left feeling very unconfident in his diagnosis. Over the course of the week all of my symptoms continued to worsen, to the point that I had to make an appt. with another doctor , but I couldnt make it to my Monday appt. so I had to go to the ER where I was informed that any virus I would've had never wouldve lasted two weeks, and he told me it was a sinus infection that has been building since day one. I will never go back to this clinic. And I Definately won't recommend this doctor to anyone.

March 29, 2012

Interested in my concerns. Helpful.

March 23, 2012

I am very pleased with the time Dr. Ragle spends with his patients. I do not feel like I am just another number like some doctors make a person feel. He makes a person feel like they are the only patient he has for that day. It's nice having him for my primary care physician.

March 22, 2012

good

March 16, 2012

Dr Ragle is considerate and I think he is very knowledge, smart and caring

March 02, 2012

You have to like Dr. Ragle. You never feel like he is rushed. He is there for you every moment he's in the room. It's nice to feel connected. I wish he would be slightly more thorough/detailed in the exams ("no stone unturned"), but the connection is good and so much appreciated. He is responsive, caring, and knowledgeable. That combination is difficult to find in most physicians.

March 01, 2012

Dr. R must have taken a course in listening.

February 29, 2012

excellent

February 17, 2012

i alresdy tell many people about the u of u madsen

February 15, 2012

Super smart and articulate. Nice person.

February 15, 2012

The med student or resident (Rebecca) came in first and did a detailed history with me, to understand the background of the problem, as well as the acute/current symptoms. She was professional, and very thorough. She had a genuine sense of concern. I liked how she thought of all of my medical problems wholistically, rather than just focusing on the few symptoms I was presenting that day. I particularly liked how she considered the fact that I was pregnant. She then consulted with Doc Ragle. They came in together, with a great list of solutions that allowed me to manage my asthma and sinus issues, which were likely a contributor of my current symptoms (cold, respiratory infection). Most of the medical advice I had received about my regular inhalers and nasal spray was to avoid them, as much as possible, while pregnant. Dr Ragel and his student came up with alternate meds to help manage the underlying problem. Awesome. A set of class B drugs is a far better solution, than none at all. Already, after only being on the meds for 2-3 days, I can already feel relief in both my asth

February 01, 2012

I like Dr. Ragle fine, but for me, I would prefer like a doctor who comes across as more passionate about health care. He's very mellow, which is good and not good. It's hard to tell if he is a really good doctor but he is a likeable one.

February 01, 2012

Dr Ragel ROCKS! (ha just tapping into my inner child) Seriously, he is very thorough, compassionate, patient. He makes me feel very comfortable and does not rush through the appt. Has a great bed-side manner. We have a great rapport!

January 26, 2012

excelent...

January 07, 2012

Dr. Ragle listens and doesnt interuppt!

January 05, 2012

Dr. Ragle takes the time to address my concerns with genuine interest as well as being very knowleable. If there was an excellent rating, I would rate all the categories excellent.
