I was charged $1600 for a injection that I never received. My insurance was billed, but didn't pay due to our high deductible. Hopefully this was an error and not a common practice .

Went looking for a third opinion, after being told by 2 other rheumatologist that I would be on a particular medicine for years. As a 21 year old, not something i wanted to hear. Dr. Ridley actually made me feel like a partner in my health care. He gave me a list of other options to choose from and we were able to come to a decision together.

He took the time to get to know me, reviewed referral information confirmed, ordered his own tests and moved me straight forward for treatment! Thank you, that is what I needed for at least 6 months! Highly recommend Dr Ridley!

Total shill for big pharma - he'd rather prescibe 24k shots before exploring more traditional methods at least thats according to my current rheumatologist. Unkind and uncaring disposition. Always seems like he'd rather be doing something else. Lacks the organizational skills to compiete a method of treatment or simply neglects to share with patients. His staff is untrustworthy and sick of working for a miserable pathetic jerk while he's busy worrying about his tee times .DON'T DO IT!
