Dr. Ridner is one of the best Cardiologist at Huntsville Hospital. He is always very caring and so easy to talk to. I would recommend Dr. Ridner to everyone!

Dr. Ridner is okay but his office staff is horrible. They requested pre-approval for a procedure from BCBS, which they received, I had the procedure and then they wouldn't give BCBS the information they needed to approve the claim. I requested in writing, multiple times that they give BCBS the office notes they needed and instead of doing so, they sent my information to a collection agency and now I'm stuck with a $1,000 bill for something that is covered by my insurance.
