Worst Dr. ever! Wrong treatment on my husband, let him have useless tube hang from his side for almost four months. Very obnoxious, rude, and combative if asking him questions. Did NOT show up for surgery to take tube out. New Dr., took the useless tube out of his side right after x rays within 10 minutes of visit. Can’t believe he is still in practice.

My experience as a caregiver for his patient is that he is not knowledgeable and quick to dismiss his patients.

Do not Do not see Dr. Richards. He does not spend adequate time with the patient. You have to insist for him to run any test or prescribe any medicine. He does not act with any empathy to patients pain or concerns.
