Roswell, GA |
I was totally disrespected by Dr. Richters office staff on all levels.I was given no insights as to my disease and was shown the door without any office summary or future appointment information. When I called back I was hung up on and the office phones were turned off.

I personally feel he really cares you and explains everything very well to you.

Dr. Richter himself is a fine doctor. He seems caring and knowledgeable. His office staff is highly unprofessional though. Waiting 1.5 hours for an appointment is common. It takes multiple phone calls to get a prescription refill.

Dr. Richter seems to be a good doctor, but his staff is very unprofessional. I have recommended this doctor to other people, but now I will recommend someone else.
