Pompano Beach, FL |
I have been a patient of Dr. Richards for 20+yrs. She is undeniably the best OB/GYN I've had-the other doctors I went to prior to her were terrible. Dr. Richards and her team are compassionate, gives ample time during the exam to address any concerns/questions, and respects my thoughts/desires on direction of care (not like other doctors that don't listen to the patient and pushes only what they think). Dr. Richards delivered both my children, and I won't dream of choosing to leave her care.

I went to her admin. Staff was very courteous. Dr Richards for the fist time. I waited a little, she apologized for the wait. Examine me , gave me some suggestions. I will return. She seemed experienced.

First visit. Prompt, friendly, efficient staff and doctor, Highly recommend them. Dr. Richards was great.
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
My experience was horrible! I was treated like a number. Dr. Richards was rushed with me. After spending on average over an hour in the waiting room and 20 minutes the exam room, she was finished with me in 5 minutes, without apologies. And I always booked the 1st appointment! Not the way to treat pregnant women. I spent more time talking to her administrative staff!
Pembroke Pines, Florida |
Super uncaring, the doctor and her staff. Even though she promised me that she will be delivering my child on a Saturday if it comes down to it so that I wouldn't have to use the male doctor from her firm, she didn't show up. To my extreme surprise, my husband ran into her at the lobby right after my delivery (by the male doctor unfortunately due to it actually falling on a Saturday) and told her I just gave birth and all she told him that the other doctor is in charge. Didn't even ask how I was
