Dr. Richards has been our family internist for around 20 years. He is thorough, kind, calm and remembers little details about our family (outside of our medical history) that astound me. My 20 something children love him as much as my husband and me. Cannot say enough wonderful things about him!

Dr. Richards identified my appendicitis correctly and sent me across the street for surgery. He has been my family's doctor for years. My grandparents, parents, aunts, and uncles all see Dr. Richards. He even calls my grandfather after hours to give him his test results.
