What People Say About Dr. Heidi Richardson, MD
Reply
Dr Richardson has been wonderful and supportive. Originally referred to her for a dilated duct with debris and abnormal cells, she first felt the diagnosis a benign papilloma and no cancer. After the first surgery (which she did a wonderful job!), the pathology came back as cancer. Dr Richardson did a fantastic job explaining to me and my husband the diagnosis and recommendation for treatment. 2 more surgeries had to be done to completely remove all cancer cells, Dr Richardson did a great job!

I would never recommend this Doctor. I have a lump in my breast and went in for a follow up with Dr. Richardson. She said she couldn't "appreciate" a lump in my breast and my exam was "normal." I questioned her further, hoping she would feel for it again, because it is very easy for me to feel, and at my previous visit, she told me she thought I had a benign adenoma. She became frustrated with me and said "what do you want me to do, cut off your nipple?!?" I left in tears. Awful experience.
