Patient Comments (3)

Dr Richter and his staff are awesome! Dr Richter is direct, confident but not at all arrogant, he explained what he was doing and why - this is a huge plus for this nurse/patient. Thanks Everyone was professional and were able to reduce some of my anxiety and fear with their down to earth manner....more

Wonderful Doctor. I am very pleased with my scar (or lack of...it's so faint only after 5 months).

I have virtually no scar from two MOHS that Dr. Richter has done. Even though he warned me I would have some scarring with one of them. Can't see it. At his office, you're in and out in 15-45 minutes even if he needs to return and take another slice of tissue. No need for more needles/anesthesia....more
