I was able to get an appointment within a reasonable time frame. Dr. Richard's was easy to talk to. My daughter was very comfortable with him.

Dr. Richards is very good at what he does. He was easy to talk to for myself and my son. He used a conservative approach for treatment with my son which we greatly appreciated.

Dr. Richards has been treating my 10 year old son for 15 months. My son was in a very dark place when he first went to see Dr. Richards and was not at all happy about having to go. He didn't want to share his personal thoughts. Dr. Richards is relatively soft spoken, has a non-threatening manner and asked appropriate questions which helped my son open up without feeling that his innermost feelings were being violated. The medication Dr. Richards prescribed has made a world of difference.

I will be forever grateful to the kind professional care that Dr. Richards gave to my daughter. Struggling with both ADHD and depression, Dr. Richards carefully and skillfully treated my daughter and turned things around for her completely-not an easy situation because he had to carefully adjust medicines for 2 different conditions. He seems to communicate very well with teenagers-my daughter loves seeing him and actually aspires to become a pediatric psychiatrist now based on her experience

Dr Richards is professional and knowledgeable. Mental health issues are scary and complex. He is always able to cut through to the most critical points and create a care plan that brings results. I highly recommend him.
