Dr Richards was friendly and very easy to understand. All information was explained to me so it was easily understood. He took the time to show me my x rays and MRI and point out where the problem was and what the problem was. Then with models of the spine he showed me what he was going to do. All staff I came in contact with were very helpful and friendly.

Dr. Richards and practice was recommended to me by other medical professionals for treatment of constant sciatica from a herniated disc. My first visit was great, he spent at least 30 mins with me since I had a ton of questions on my MRI and treatment options. I had tried six weeks of conservative care prior to my appointment with dr. Richards. I selected to have dr. Richards perform the microdiscectomy first possible date. I am writing the day after surgery- I feel awesome! Thank you dr. R!
in Burton, MI |
Dr Richards was awesome. I was immediately comfortable with him, he explained more to me about the issues for my back pain and my test results than any other provider. He made me feel like I was the only patient he had at that time, spending a great deal of time with me and answering all my questions. I did not hesitate to schedule my surgery with this gifted surgeon. However his staff leaves a lot to be desired. They made me feel like I was imposing and they never return calls.
