OUR MISSION

Age doesn’t mean that you need to feel old. Our focus is keeping hormones in balance for optimum energy, healing, and vitality and providing the diet and nutrition education and support to maintain the healthy lifestyle you deserve. At Viking Alternative Medicine we use the best evidence-based practices to enhance conventional care by treating patients withe all types of health conditions, including those who wish to learn more about preventative health care and what makes a lifestyle healthy. We welcome patients with all types of health conditions. For those patients who are unsure about what services would best help them, we encourage you to make an appointment with one of our staff who can guide you to the appropriate service and within our practice. We utilize the latest technology which allows us to take advantage of telemedicine meaning you do not have to leave the comfort of your home or office for your visit to us. You will not be rushed through your visit. We believe in being accessible to our patients and taking the time to address all your questions. We encourage communication with your other healthcare providers so that your heal care is unified. We encourage you to give us permission to share our recommendations with your other providers whenever possible.

Slide SAM RIDGEWAY / OWNER Sam is the owner of Viking Alternative Medicine, LLC. As a TRT patient himself since 2018, Sam experienced far too many clinics that focused on profits instead of patient care. In June of 2019 Sam set out to change the Hormone Replacement Care industry and started Viking. In less than a year Viking had thousands of patients under its care and was setting the standard in the HRT market. As Sam always says, “If you focus on taking care of the customer first, the profit will follow on its own.”

Sam has been an entrepreneur for over 25 years and has worked in various industries ranging from managing world-wide computer networks to owning a Fitness Studio to starting and operating multiple successful insurance agencies.

Adopted at 2 and a half years old, Sam’s ancestry was unknown. Receiving a 23AndMe Testing Kit as a birthday present from his wife when he was 49 years old, Sam found out he was from over 70% Scandinavian descent. From that knowledge the Viking brand was born.
