Patient Comments (2)
in Bowling Green, KY |
Unfortunately I was supposed to have my second surgery with Dr. Richards and it ended up that insurance denied it due to lack of information to prove it was necessary. Instead of Dr. Richards calling and doing a peer to peer review of my surgery, which could have resolved this issue within a matter of days, he told me he would write a letter. Well long story short, I couldn't get a hold of him to talk and his secretary was EXTREMELY rude to me. I was very disappointed to say the least.

Focused, caring and he listened to my questions then thoughtfully answered each one.
