John William Ragsdale III
Associate Professor in Community and Family Medicine

I have worked at Duke Family Medicine since I moved to the area in 2008, and I served as medical director from  2011 until 2016.  I'm now the Division Chief of the Department of Family Medicine. I gain a lot of personal satisfaction from being involved with patient care as my administrative roles have grown.My interests have evolved. I have always enjoyed teaching and believe it is a core value of our practice.

I have also begun to care for patients of survivors of cancer at the cancer center.  
This is a new and evolving area that I am very excited about.
