Very caring Dr!! Dr Riddle has a genuine interest and heart for his patients. I almost died in a car accident 11 years ago and Dr Riddle has been patching me up for the last 8 years. He always tries the least evasive and easiest method first. You may have to wait when you get there but it's worth it. Just know that going in.

I have chosen Dr. Riddle four times to do surgery on me and I have been more than satisfied with his expertise and knowledge concerning my needs. Dr. Riddle has a compassionate attitude toward his patients, as do his staff. I have taken physical therapy with his group on three different surgeries, and their performance is also excellent. I recommend Dr. Riddle and his Georgia Bone and Joint Staff to everyone! Well done!
