Dr Ridner is VERY thorough. I went to him for a 2nd opinion, and I can honestly say, I wish I had went there first. He explained everything completely, and his kind nature, put me at ease. He made sure I understood my condition, my options, and what to expect moving forward. He also made sure I had a chance to ask questions and even offered his cell #. When I looked puzzled, the nurse said, if you have questions, he really wants you to call him. Who else does that? He is definitely my neweye doc

I can't say enough good about Dr Ridner!!! He did my cataract surgery a year ago. I chose the multi focal lens and am very glad I did. He is an extremely excellent ophthalmologist in my opinion. As long as he is in the Chattanooga area, he is my eye doctor of choice!

Absolutely the Best , I,m very anxious around medical personnel but after meeting and talking with Dr Ridner all my fears vanished. Such a compassionate individual , never felt hurried or like I was only a number in his day. He is diffidently an asset to the White Coat profession and I feel really blessed to have him taking care of my eyes. Thank you

He is fantastic. his technic was completely different from VA, there was no pain, surgery went well. I could see well immediately with no swelling,pain or post operative problems. Thank You
