What People Say About Dr. Donald Richardson, MD

Dr. Richardson literally saved my life in 1968, his residency was at Tulane. I was 5 years old then. I had an eosynaphyllic granuloma. At 6 a plate replaced the section of skull removed from my head. He did that surgery, as well. I am certain that I have the right Dr. Donald Richardson. I have a stuffed animal from many years ago with his signature. My name, Jamie Temple from Slidell, Louisiana. I would love to speak with him. I have a medical concern. My email is wldhrsesrn2me@gmail.com.
