I would never recommend him to anyone. He was the rudest Dr I have ever been to. He spoke to me like I was a piece of trash. He did nothing for my knees.

This is about two phone calls that I have left for you over the past two days and that have not been returned. I have been carrying a fever since Saturday the 16th of May. I have been tested for Covid and it was negative. Have not been out for 10 weeks. Outside of the fever and chills, I have no other symptoms .Could this fever have something to do with the surgery? Please reply. By the way, my hip feels bad.

I had my right hip replaced by Dr Ridgeway 4 years ago and I can say it was the best experience dealing with him. He’s so kind, smart and has a great bedside manner. Dr. Ridgeway explains everything to you. I was worried about my hip “popping out” and he assured me that wouldn’t happen. I recommend him if you need your hip replaced!!
