Tina Ridgway, APRN
Tina has been an integral part of Passer Restorative Therapies for more than 10 years. She completed her women’s health nurse practitioner education at the University of Texas South Western Medical Center in Dallas, in 1993.
Her expertise with women of all ages includes hormone replacement therapy, thyroid diagnosis treatment and routine gynecological exams. Her excellent bedside manner, coupled with her years of knowledge, has made her a favorite with patients.
Jeff Passer has been my primary care doctor for more than twenty-years. I am a 60-year old man, and now I feel and act like I am 35. Jeff has always been there to counsel, help, monitor and treat me through the years and continues to do so now. He is an excellent Physician, and, just as importantly, a caring human being.
I had accepted that I was a middle age woman at 45. I had accepted that I was tired and gained 18 pounds overnight. I had accepted that I was on an anti-depressant for the rest of my life and that it was as good as it gets. My doctor never even checked anything else. Then I went to Dr. Passer’s office. I needed thyroid replacement. Of course my hormones were that of a 45 year old! I needed testosterone. I needed estrogen and progesterone. I needed dhea and a multi-vitamin hormone activator. I did not need an anti-depressant. It took almost two months. I lost 24 pounds. My energy came back!
My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Passer. We travel from our home in KC for our appointments -- that's how good he is! I'm especially grateful to Dr. Passer for being so proactive and innovative when it comes to treating women. And thank you to his staff for their always pleasant and caring demeanor. They are the best!
I have been going to Dr. Passer for several years now. He is such a caring and compassionate doctor who listens, spends as much time as needed to take care of me, and gets to the bottom of the issue.
Everyone out there who has struggled with their weight, needs to hear how wonderful and easy Dr. Emma’s diet is to follow and to please make the commitment to want to change their lives and I will be forever thankful to her, because she has already changed mine!!
encourage anyone out there to make this journey with me and to go and see the wonderful weight loss professional’s at Dr. Passer’s ~ you won’t regret it!!
Dr. Emma’s diet is like not being on a diet if you know what I mean…lol!! She had made it so easy to follow and the best part is, you get to eat real food that I get to prepare myself, it is not that pre-packed food that once you take a look at, you would rather starve than eat it. Another perk of her diet is, I don’t have to run to the gym and bust my butt to get the weight off. I simply go walking at night and each night I go a little further and I am proud to say that only after 25 days, I am down 21 pounds!!!!! I also want to let everyone out there know that you do not starve on this diet. I have read a lot of negative comments on the internet stating you only get 500 calories so you are starving yourself. This diet is catered around you and your body and I personally get 1000 calories/day and trust me, that is a lot of food!
The friendly, knowledgeable staff provided excellent, on-time service. I received tips and encouragement at each visit. I was given the tools and techniques to succeed. I truly enjoyed my relaxing, private consultation and visits. I quickly noticed visible improvements in my skin. I love the professional, friendly team.
There is something to be said for having a physician on-site! Went to a different facility for low T never saw a physician for over a year and was not satisfied with results. I saw Dr Gross my first visit and once a month after I am AMAZED at the results of my Low T treatment.
Started taking the pharmaceutical supplements from the office, having previously just gotten them at a drug store. My levels of Vitamin D shot up after one month!!
I have gone from a size 18 to a size10, have lost 41 pounds, and reduced my body mass index from 33 to 26. Just as impressively, my fat went from 86 to 57. This is less than I have weighed in 35 years. I feel healthier than I have since my 20s.
Throughout this process, I had the benefit of Penny’s expert advice and consultation. Her guidance and support has made a significant difference in my success. My husband also has become a patient of Dr. Passer and Penny. He was placed on a diet plan that is right for him, and has successfully lost weight.
At close to 200lbs, I had do something for my health and self esteem. I met Penny, who was encouraging and knowledgeable about weight loss and eating healthy. We talked about my struggles with weight and food addiction. I am now 7 month into the program and couldn’t be happier. I have lost almost 50 pounds and can’t wait to lose more…Hard work, determination, and great support has turned me in the right direction.
