Patient Comments (3)
Hawley, PA |
I called for an appointment in April. I was told the first available date was in late June. I got there a half hour early, as they requested. When I asked how long a wait they had, they refused to answer, and said it was impossible to know. When I insisted, I was referred to a manager. When I started getting angry, I was finally told that they were running at least one and one half hour late. I eventually waited nearly two hours. I was so tired and angry I barely remember the actual exam

I suffered for 3 months, x- ray's showed "remarkable" I just couldn't take the pain, when to see DR. RICH was so gentle feeling? my wrist, hand and finger, DR. know exactly what and where to hit. Next day pain it felt 50% better, day after 100%. I have to say he the best around the area. ??

He was walking out the door while I was still talking to him. He gave me very little advice on how I can alleviate pain in my hand and wrist while working besides to use a thicker pen. I type all day. I don't use a pen!
