Dr. Richard have been my family doctor for almost twenty and I look forward for many years with him. He make you feel comfortable when you sick knowing that he knows what exactly is wrong with you and treat you as such. Would recommend him to anyone.

He is very rude,doesn't explain anything, always in a hurry, prescribed me a lot of different medicine, drug test every month for no reason, taking away the medicine I need. Too long waiting on him. Would tell everyone not to see him!

Dr. Richard is a very knowledgeable Dr. that explains in terms anyone can understand. I also work on healthcare and in my 20 yrs as a nurse I've never seen a doc with a better bedside manner. He also was able to diagnosis and treat me correctly after other docs failed to.

Dr Richard is probably the coolest most down to earth doctor I have ever met. You can ask him anything and he will tell you exactly what you need to know and probably have a story or 2 to back it up!
