I just recently became a patient of Dr. Ridenhour and she was exceptionally nice. She sat and talked with me prior to performing my exam. During the exam she was gentle and thorough. I had fibroids and she gave me all of the options. I decided to have surgery to have them removed. On the day of the surgery she actually held my hand and we prayed. I felt so good at that moment knowing that I was protected by God and that my doctor is a believer as well.

Dr. Ridenhour is wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. I just had to go see her today and looked all over the internet to find a site to give her a rating. I have tried several OBGYN doctors in the past and no other doctor holds a candle to Dr. Ridenhour. Her office is quick to get you in and out, she actually LISTENS to her patients/remembers past issues from previous office visits, and gives wonderful advice and reference to other types of doctors if needed. I had an exam, an ultrasound, talked with Dr. Ridenhour again in her private office, and was written prescriptions all in matter of 30 minutes today. If she sends you home with a new medicine or if she knows you are having a problem, she gives you a direct number to contact her quickly. Highly recommend Dr. Ridehour, as well as other doctors in her same practice.
