Learn about Dr. Richardson

Care Philosophy

"I have always been fascinated by physiology and biochemistry, which is the foundation of much of the understanding of endocrine science. Endocrine offers a wide range of challenging and interesting medical problems, which lend themselves to logical solutions. The epidemic of Diabetes Mellitus (DM) and obesity offers a unique interest to me as it places a heavy burden on our community. This has inspired me to focus on ways in which I can be a vital part in defending against its progression. I read avidly on the science of advancing technologies and therapies of both DM and Obesity Care. Finally, I believe my patients should leave my visits with a greater understanding regarding their disease process so they may better function in the central role they play in achieving their treatment goals." - Dr. Christy Richardson

Patient Comments (2)
My mother was referred to Dr. Richardson. She saw her on June 1st and still hasn't received results from the tests that were done at that time. More tests were done 3 weeks ago, after my mom's primary care insisted that Dr. Richardson see her again. Now my mom is calling every Thursday (the only day Dr. Richardson calls her patients) to request the results. It's ridiculous! I'll be reporting Dr. Richardson to the insurance company because my mom is paying for tests without getting any results.

I am a T1D using an insulin pump. While on vacation my pump broke so I needed a long lasting insulin to use. I called my doctors office which was closed so I opted to have the on call doctor paged. Dr Richardson returned my page. She was rude, insensitive and judgmental. I am not the best patient when it comes to seeing my doctor regularly, I know that, but she was more focused on that than wanting to help me. She cut me off and talked down to me. I needed her help, not her judgment.
