Over the years Dr. Richman and his entire staff have been vital in helping me maintain a high level of health and well-being. Prior to becoming a patient with Dr. Richman, I struggled daily with severe pain and pain-related anxiety. My confidence and everyday functionality are at all-time highs because of their guidance.

Always a pleasure with Dr. Richman. He answers all my lower back questions and without his help I wouldn’t have a job. The place of business is always courteous, clean, and prompt. I’ll never want to go anywhere else.

I have been a patient of Dr. Richmond for many years. I'm sure I will be on medication for the rest of my life, dispute the number of procedures I have had. Dr. Richmond has made my life beyond tolerable, so much as I believe no one has has been able to do. Dr. Richmond is a very compassionate doctor and treats his patients very well and suggests possible helpful treatments. He and the other Doctors and staff really care about their patients and make you feel like you are not just another number. I'm sure you will be just as happy with this pratice as I have been.

I was referred to Dr. Richmond by my surgeon, Dr. Agudelo after receiving MRI results. I was in severe pain from the right side of my lower back, to my right ankle for almost a month. I was prescribed anti inflammatory and pain medication to no avail. I was extremely impressed with Dr. Richmond and his PA, Tom during my consultation. Dr. Richmond provided options to assist with alleviating my pain. He was compassionate and took time to explain, answer questions and address my concerns in regards to an epidural. Dr. Richmond gained my complete trust during the consultation. I chose to have the epidural which provided relief in less than 24 hours. I would highly recommend Dr. Richmond without any reservations as an anesthesiologist and for pain management.
