Extremely satisfied with my cataract surgery and care and with the follow up appointments.
Philadelphia, PA |
I've been seeing Dr. Richmond for over 20 years now and have never had a problem. I also take all my children. He has a very friendly personality and tells them jokes to kind of ease any fears. Dr. Richmond and his staff are very professional, courteous and always available to answer questions. When you call you never have to leave a message; you'll always get a live person to talk to. They are also very accommodating when I need to get in to see the doctor, no long waits. Highly recommend

Dr Richmond has been my eye doctor for many years. First introduced by my wife's father who had cataract surgery in the 1980's. Dr Richmond preformed my cataract surgery in 2016. He is professional and does a excellent examine of your eyes and makes you aware of any problems. After cataract surgery he contacts you to check on your condition. He known for sending flowers to you. I would and have highly recommended Dr. Richmond to others.
