Patient Comments (9)
Dr. Richardson was a big help. He got in me in a reasonable time, flexible around my time schedule since I am a student, and helped me get fixed up in a reasonable time.
I have had multiple procedures by Dr. Richardson as well as my daughter. Every experience has been positive with great results. Dr. Richardson spends lots of time explaining the procedure as well as post op instructions with my self and family. Every visit Dr. Richardson runs on time and I almost never have to wait! We are very pleased with Dr. Richardson and would refer our family and friends to him.
I have been a patient of Dr. Richardson since 1996. Dr. Richardson has done several procedures on me and you can't even see a scar where he worked on my hand. I would highly recommend my friends and family to come see Dr. Richardson.
My mother, wife, and myself all have seen Dr. Richardson for many years. Our family wouldn't consider going anywhere else. Dr. Richardson has the best bedside manners in the operating room as well as in the office. After our surgeries, he came out to the lounge and explained in detail the outcome of surgery, post-operative instructions, and call to check up on us.

Dr. Richardson is a great physician, who listens well and has many, many years experience in his field. His office staff are also really kind and warm when you walk in to the office.

I was not very satisfied with George at all. He is rude and has no respect for his patients time. His bed side manner is horrible. He may know medicine, but he totally disregards his patients opinions, feelings and medical history. He was my last choice for surgery and I almost opted to suffer than let him operate on me. in the future it would be wise to ensure his patient is a sleep before starting his procedure.

Dr Richardson spent much time preop telling us how much he could help with my husbands hand problems. On the day of surgery just before going to the operating room was my first impression he was not able to do what he said he could. What was supposed to be a 20 minute surgery became a 4 hour surgery, multiple follow up surgeries with destruction of function in his hand. Thanks To Dr Richardson my husband is miserable with a minimally functioning hand. Continula pain and angwr now rule his life

I have been waiting for him to come and visit me for about 1 hour. He did not show up. I got off from the work so I went to find him, he was free talking to nurses. I asked him why it's been so long for him to come. He was so inconsiderate, just said: I can come to see you now. I asked for refund because I could not stand seeing a doctor who does not care. He was there when I left the office and he did not even care to apologize. Really terrible experience.

Horrible each new visit brought more bad news more disappointment and less function to the repair
