Dr. Ridley's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ridley "Dr. Ryan Ridley was raised in the military city of Fayetteville, NC as the son of an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant. In 2002, he completed a Bachelors Degree in Biology at Howard University in our nation's capital of Washington, DC. After completing his undergraduate studies, Ryan attended The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston (UTMB) for medical school from which he graduated in 2006. Ryan fell in love with Texas and decided to remain at UTMB to complete a residency in Otolaryngology. Once his residency training was complete, Ryan was chosen to complete a fellowship in Otology at the prestigious Silverstein Institute in Sarasota, FL. Ryan is board certified in Otolaryngology and fellowship trained in Otology/Neurotology. Ryan is happily married to his beautiful wife Tricia and is the proud father of two children: his daughter, Ava, and his son, Gavin. Personally, Ryan considers himself to be a family man at heart and enjoys spending time with his wife and kids. He loves traveling the world with his wife. Tahiti, Thailand, and Spain are just a few of the stamps on their passports!"
