Dr. Richter was friendly and seems to be extremely competent. The reasons for giving him only 3 stars are: 1. My experience with the medical staff person who did the initial intake was not a pleasant one. "Friendly" would not be a word I would use to describe her. 2. I waited 45 minutes before I even saw the intake staff person. Total time in the office was exactly 3 hours. I spent perhaps 15 minutes with Dr. Richter and 10-15 minutes having other tests performed.
