Fantastic doctor, pulled me through a difficult surgery with excessive bleeding and low spinal sensation issues. Highly skilled, excellent bedside manners, explains everything well. Trust his abilities and he pulled me through without any issues. I walk and feel great now.

Dr Richards saved my life in a 2 day very difficult brain aneurysm coiling totalling 13 hours. I returned to him for which resulted in attatching 2 plates to my spine in corrected years of pain. I highly recommend him, his skills, follow up, knowledge and caring are above reproach.
