Dr. Richter is a great, compassionate physician! He listens and remembers his patients! I wouldn't go to anyone else if I needed an orthopedic surgeon! I highly recommend him and his great staff to everyone I know..

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!!!
