Even though this is my first experience with him, I would more than recommend Dr. Richardson and his staff to all. So impressed with his professionalism, knowledge, skills, and even his humor. I’m praying that this treatment will help the pain in my back and legs. The Drs and his staff are the greatest!

Arrived at 7:00 am and was taken back to surgery center in about 5 min. Dr. Richardson came in and explained what he would be doing and we were off for the procedure. It only took about 4 min. and was painless. Great work by all the staff, and the Doctor. Great Job!!!

My first encounter with Dr Richardson was very good. I had an injection in my lumbar area to alleviate the pain that has been nagging me for some time. It has been very successful thus far. I thank him and all his staff for their professional work ethics and cheerfullnes. I felt very comfortable during the entire procedure. Hats off and thumbs up to my hero's.

I have been going to Dr. Richardson for about 4 years for pain in my left hip and back. He is wonderful, he takes great effort to make sure that he understands what I am telling him about my discomfort. And he has always helped relief my pain. He is definitely top rated in my opinion. Thanks Dr. Richardson
