    - in Ogden, UT |

    I had an emergency when I fell on my wrist. Urgent care said I needed to be seen by an Orthopedic Hand Surgeon within a week. I was able to get in to see Dr. Richards. He explained my X-rays and his treatment. I had to have surgery because the break was bad. I was pleased with the South Ogden Surgical Center where the surgery was performed. Dr. Richards and his staff were professional and friendly. They even called me to check on me the day after my surgery. I am healed and happy.
