Dr. Ridgeway- recommended by my ENT provider. I wanted a small bump on my nose “shaved” down. He also discovered my nare was collapsing with inhalation. He thought about my nose cosmetically but functionally too! My surgery was 3.5 hours long, I woke WITHOUT nausea or pain. Tylenol for mild pain & minimal bruising. No gauze packing-so I could breath better right away! He is an experienced and detailed surgeon. And his staff LOVE him which is a testament to his people skills! He is the best!

Met many doctors for many reasons in my life, but rarely do you come across a doctor of such excellence as Dr. Ridgway. First and foremost, he LISTENS to you and takes all the time in the world to make sure what you want and what he can do will come out nothing short of sheer perfection. Besides being a highly empathetic,sensitive and warm person his close to unparalleled knowledge and expertise is just formidable and very impressive.My face lift is the best money I have EVER spent. SO HAPPY !

Dr. Ridgway is the best plastic surgeon on the planet. He is very cautious, conservative and careful and explains things to you so you know exactly what is going to happen and what to expect. He has a terrific personality and I trust him completely. Am so thankful that I found him for a surgeon for my face and I will be using him and only him for the rest of my life.
