Had cataract surgery in October and he made a mistake. Had to have retina surgery by another doctor in November to fix the surgery br Dr Richmond. I still have terrible pain in my eye and my vision is no better than before. Not to mention the thousand of dollars I paid out of pocket. I have never received a phone call to see how I was. Avoid this doctor.

Dr Richmond is the best eye doctor. I couldn't see well or drive at night and after wearing glasses for 3 years I still couldn't see well at night. I went to Dr Richmond and he told me what was my problem it was cataracts in my eyes. I had the surgery I'm only 42 years old and I can finally see again. He was very nice and professional and very nice doctor. He made sure I was ok after surgery . thank you Dr Richmond for everything and the beautiful flowers. God bless your kind heart.

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.
