I absolutely LOVE my doctor, Dr. Mildred Ridgeway, and her entire team of gynecologic oncologists. She develops a personal relationship with her patients. And I can speak for myself when I say that she has been a true blessing to me. I will forever be grateful of the way she practices.....
I cannot believe the reviews that I just read by this doctor's patients! I disagree with just about every statement made. Dr. Ridgway needs to learn some manners, as does her nurse Patti. I found their actions and comments to be insensitive, non-caring, and sarcastic at times. She could have cared less about my concerns, did not listen, and the only smile that I ever observed was when she laughed sarcastically. Perhaps my honest opinion of Dr. Ridgway is the reason she moves around her places of employment so much. I would definitely never use her as a doctor or ever recommend her to anyone, including an enemy. Being an effective doctor, especially an oncologist, requires more than just book knowledge; it means possessing empathy, understanding, and caring of patients. If a doctor (or any professional dealing with human beings on a daily basis) does not possess these most important, aforementioned characteristics, perhaps she more appropriately belongs in a laboratory someplace. When a doctor does not exhibit respect, she will never be respected.
