Best Dermatologist I have ever used. Explains everything in clear, easy to understand terms without talking down to me. Effective and efficient. He is so well thought of that sometimes waiting to schedule a routine appointment can be 2 to 3 months. Followups are prompt.
in Bardstown, KY |
I went thru 4 other dermatologist before I found Dr. Richardson. I was diagnosed with basil cell skin cancer and he always takes his time with me and does everything he can to minimize any scaring. Sometimes the wait in the office is a bit long, but seeing the best doctor is worth the wait to me! I would and do always recommend Dr. Richardson!
Thank you for the 5 star rating and taking the time to post a review.
