September 11, 2016

Dr. Ragel is excellent. He genuinely *listens* and wants to help. He's by far the most helpful General Practitioner I've ever had. I also feel like he's willing to listen to my own suggestions instead of dismissing me as a mere patient.

July 15, 2016

I had done some research and requested a small amount of medication for a certain reason and my care provider disagreed. I had recently been hospitalized and felt I could benefit from this medication but I was immediately shut down and I was unhappy about that. I rarely make requests. The choice I was left with has not served me very well.

July 11, 2016

At the appointment he was very nice and told me what the ED had told me the week prior. Then that night at 7:30pm I received a call from him explaining what he had found. I feel that this is way above and beyond. He called me after hours and told me he was looking at my case throughout the afternoon, which made me feel like I received personal care! Loved it!

First visit with Dr. Ragle. He took ample time to review my history, discussed medications and concerns. Particularly appreciated his openness regarding the pros and cons of PSA tests and discussion regarding follow up and therapies if the PSA came back positive. He understood that I am more inclined to take a wait and see approach than immediately jump into further testing and treatments.

June 03, 2016

I have always been impressed with Dr. Ragle's knowledge and "bedside manner". He explained all the issues on my list as well as what labs would be done and asked if I would like other labs considered and any other issues.

March 18, 2016

Truly exceptional care provider. He has improved my quality of life on several occasions including in my most recent visit.

March 18, 2016

Dr Raegle spent quality time explaining, and most importantly, listening. An older patient has a myriad of health issues and he/she often fears confronting any possible illness. Dr. Reagle displayed an amazing amount of patience and empathy.

March 16, 2016

This was my annual physical--I guess I expected more examination--but he said I would have more lab work in 6 moths, and to make another appt for 6 months. Possibly my fault I didn't ask more questions about my diabetes.

February 26, 2016

I was surprised at how much time Dr. Ragle spent with me answering questions and letting me make decisions on my healthcare options.

February 26, 2016

I met Dr. Ragle when friend had an appointment with him and she invited me into the exam room. I saw his concern and thoroughness during her appointment. I decided to change my care provider immediately after observing Dr. Ragle interact with his patient.

Dr. Ragle is very professional, friendly, calm, knowledgeable. I never feel rushed. He answers all my questions.

February 13, 2016

Even though the Dr. could not give me an exact answer for my problem (loud noises) he was very helpful and suggested I have blood work done, which didn't contain any abnormalities, which I was grateful for. Noise continues but nothing that I can't live with. Will keep you informed if there are any major changes. Thank You.

February 05, 2016

October 25, 2015

Dr. Ragle is an extraordinarily kind, knowledgeable, sympathetic, goodhumored, encouraging -- I could go on at great length about his human and professional qualities -- doctor. He has been infinitely patient with, and supportive of me for many years and never gives any evidence of wavering in his concern or interest. A truly remarkable physician.

October 05, 2015

It is so great to keep coming back to the same great team where you are remembered and treated so efficiently by people you have come to know and respect. This is the opposite of the corporate approach so common these days.

October 03, 2015

I really appreciated Dr. Ragle coming back in the room after my visit to discuss a problem I had forgotten to talk about during the visit!! Love him

Dr. Nagle-reviewed and e-mailed me my lab results with a short summary and follow instructions within 48 hours of my visit.

July 24, 2015

Doctor Ragle had come highly recommended and I was not disappointed. His personality and "bed side" manner were impressive. He never seemed rushed or in a hurry but willing to spend all the time that I needed.

July 23, 2015

Dr. Ragle never rushes me through the appointment. He listens carefully to each of my concerns. He is never condescending, dismissive, or abrupt. I really believe that he hears me. I leave with each of my concerns having been fully addressed by him.

July 22, 2015

Nathan's informal style is great. He always makes me feel comfortable instantly.

July 21, 2015

I'm always happy with Dr Ragle's care. This time, I came in as a patient in trauma, and his level of understanding, engagement and desire to help was beyond normal care. A welcome respite from what had been truly trying events.

I have been coming to the Madsen Clinic for a number of years, and am very pleased with all personal, including Dr. Ragle/ I lik him very much as an Internal Medicine Physician.

June 12, 2015

Have only had two appointments with my new doctor and am already recommending him to others!

I recommend Dr. Ragle all the time.

March 31, 2015

want to get better with our health and so far things are not working well

March 27, 2015

we spent a lot of time discussing my diabetes issues which was good, but I was surprised there was no quick physical check up , listening to heart, lungs etc.

Dr. Ragle is terrific. He's the best primary care physician I've had.

March 09, 2015

Dr. Ragle is wonderful! I feel confident that I am in great care.

March 01, 2015


February 27, 2015

I understood everything Dr, Ragle said. He has a great sense of humor and deals with me handily as I'm quite delinquent about getting in to see him! I did notice that his directions to the pharmacy for my medication, which Dr. Ragle said should be applied to my bilateral nostril, got interpreted as needing to be applied to both nostrils but that was a pretty good guess on the part of the pharmacy.

February 21, 2015

The only reason I wouldn't recommend Nate is that I don't want him to get any busier!

February 17, 2015

Dr. Ragle is an exceptional physician. He is knowlegeable and listens so very well. I have tremendously high expectations and he exceeds them as he helps me navigate the entire health care system and coordinate the issues that pop up.

February 03, 2015

Excellent physician.

January 30, 2015

Even though I think Dr. Ragle is an excellent physician, I will not be returning to Madsen Clinic due to insurance limitations. Dr. Ragle/Madsen Clinic is not contracted with my insurance company, SelectCare.

January 28, 2015

Dr. Ragle is very thorough in his explanations, and he takes time to answer my questions and concerns. I'm so glad he's my primary care physician.

January 20, 2015

Dr Ragel is an amazing healthcare provider and I tell everyone how amazing he is. Dr Ragel takes time to listen, but more importantly, he responds, listens closely to all concerns you have, is detailed in his responses and always has a friendly demeanor to go with his highly professional approach. he is by far the best doctor I have had, and as long as he is there I will surely recommend the Madsen Clinic.

January 18, 2015

November 12, 2014

Nate was one of our residents, and has done us proud! He listened well, didn't interrupt or talk over me, was considerate of my medicated state, and I will trust him to help manage my chronic condition. Couldn't have been better.

October 31, 2014

I am extremely picky when it comes to doctors and I could not be more impressed with Dr. Ragle.

As always Dr. Ragle takes the time to listen to you and prescribe the best course of treatment for you. He engages you in the process so that you have a commitment to follow the prescribed course of treatment. He takes the time to explain and then follows up to be sure everything is going well with the new treatment. You won't find many doctors who will do that. Dr. Ragle is exceptional and I recommend him anytime someone is looking for a doctor!

October 22, 2014

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.

Dr. Ragle is not just a super brain, but also a very nice super brain with a superb bedside manner

June 30, 2014

Very informative and professional

June 17, 2014


June 07, 2014

I am relatively new to the SLC area and am very pleased with my first experience with Dr. Ragle and Madsen Internal Medicine.

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


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

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

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.

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


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. 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 28, 2014

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

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 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

January 07, 2014

Dr. Ragle is great

January 02, 2014

I was very comfortable with the experience

December 16, 2013

Dr. Ragle is terrific. He listens and then thoroughly explains the next steps.

December 13, 2013

outstanding physician and clinic experience

December 11, 2013

Love the My Chart as I can communicate with the doctor and see my test results. Dr. Ragle is always very patient in listening to my concerns and taking the appropriate action necessary to resolving them.

December 05, 2013


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 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


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 19, 2013

Dr. Ragle was friendly, knowledgeable, and a good listener.

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

Good experience

May 28, 2013

Dr. Ragle is very proficent in his role as a care provider. I am very pleased with his services

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.

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

March 12, 2013

February 05, 2013

I really like to be included in any decisions and Dr. Ragle is great about discussing treatment options with me. I get plenty of information and always feel like I am the only patient he is seeing that day! I never feel rushed.

This MD said he would send me a MyChart email to follow up, but he never did.

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 15, 2012

Really pleasant personality, easy to talk to, very down to earth. I liked him a lot!

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.

August 14, 2012

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

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

May 08, 2012


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


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


February 17, 2012

i alresdy tell many people about the u of u madsen

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 15, 2012

Super smart and articulate. Nice person.

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


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.
