5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Septorhinoplasty with the amazing Dr. Ridgway - Bellevue, WA

Show More Dr. Ridgway is fantastic! For starters, he is extremely experienced and highly credentialed. However, the best thing about Dr. Ridgway is that he is a "real person"--he takes the time to get to know you and in turn tells you about his life and experiences--without listing his degrees and accolades (of which he has many). He is personable, honest, and straightforward. I'm not a particularly nervous person, but he made me feel entirely reassured every step of the way. It is so nice (and refreshing) to have a conversation with a doctor who makes you feel like all of your questions are important and worthy of their time and attention. Dr. Ridgway gives you his personal phone number, calls to check in a few hours after surgery, and encourages you to call him at any time with questions. His office staff is just as wonderful--Susan is always kind, pleasant, promptly returns calls, and walked me through the entire insurance claim process to make sure all parts of my procedure were covered (I had a bad experience with another doctor who improperly filed a claim which led to a hefty bill, so I especially appreciated her help!) I could go on and on. I am now a month post-op and feeling great. Recovery was straightforward and just as Dr. Ridgway described it would be during pre-op conversations. I've had no complications, and most importantly I can BREATHE again--and am told it will only get better as the swelling continues to decrease. My nose is now functional, and looks so much better now that is straight (and not collapsing). I am incredibly thankful to have been directed to Dr. Ridgway, would recommend him to every and anyone, and couldn't be happier with the results.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Botox for my Forehead. Bellevue, WA

Show More I can't say enough about Dr. Ridgway and how much I adore him. He is friendly, brilliant, honest, and professional. You are in very good hands with this man. He is very good about spending time explaining the reason(s) behind his decisions with patients, so you are always very informed. He is really a great guy and a gifted clinician. Go see him.

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. James Ridgway.

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Best Decision of my Life - Bellevue, WA

Show More Dr. Ridgway was fantastic. He went through my procedure thoroughly beforehand and was relaxed and thoughtful in answering my questions. Furthermore, he was funny and engaging and understood all aspects of why I was thinking of getting the surgery. Plus, the office staff knew me by name when I came in, and I was able to schedule my appointments according to my schedule.

5 out of 5 stars Septoplasty

Chronic Sinusitis, Second Surgery Success! - Seattle, WA

5 out of 5 stars Botox

First Botox Experience, 43 Years Old - Seattle, WA

Show More Dr. Ridgeway is a surgeon as well so I feel very safe and comfortable having him as my doctor. I felt no pain, there was no bruising, and you couldn't even tell I'd had anything done so I could go right back to work. He is the type of DR that will tell you if he thinks something will not look natural. I would highly recommend his services and I'll not trust anyone else with my Botox procedure.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Very,very Happy. Bellevue, WA

Show More My identical twin sister and I both wanted a face lift but wanted to be sure that afterwards we looked like ourselves, only better. Our identity was so associated with being a twin that anything that threatened how we looked might have negative results psychologically. We wanted to find a plastic surgeon that would be certain to retain our individual facial differences while still improving our appearance. After several conversations with Dr. Ridgeway, we were confident he would. And he did. We are both very, very pleased with the outcome, as well as the entire process. He is a perfectionist. No detail about the entire process was overlooked, from the patient education to the post-op follow-up. I would absolutely recommend anyone to him. He is a superb surgeon who genuinely cares about his patients. Overall rating 5 stars, including bedside manner, aftercare and follow-up, time spent with me, responsiveness, staff and payment process. Wait times were terrific.

Show More Dr. Ridgway is a thorough, honest, caring and compassionate doctor and was with me every step of the way. He was always accessible and answered all my questions. This was a great decision and I am very happy with the results. Now I just smile as part of the group when everyone pulls out their smart phones for photos.
