    My husband was involved in a horrible accident, breaking multiple bones. The on call physician referred us to Dr. Richter. What a god send. That man is amazing. He was able to help not only my husband with his adept surgical skill, but made me feel at ease with his kind personality and comforting bedside manner.

    Dr. Richter made a mistake in my fathers death certificate and when contacted to amend it, he took over 3 weeks to file amendment causing our family grief and heartache! I hope when it comes to his loved one he doesn't have to go through what he put us through!!!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
