Clearly picked the wrong field to specialize in. Referred for a herniated disc flare up for imaging scripts (I need an X-Ray & possibly a new MRI) & treatment plans like surgery. Did not answer questions, rushed the visit & acted like I was a pill seeker (didn't need/want meds) Doc says I do need an X-Ray, didn't give a script for it, had to call two days in a row to finally be told an X-Ray script will be mailed. Requested a note for work as I can't stand refused to write a note for the visit

One of the worst doctors I've ever seen. Poor diagnosis due to his ignorance and lack of caring for patients. Lucky for me, I got a second opinion.

He has a great bedside manner. Being terrified of needles Dr. Richards puts me right at ease.

Unfortunately there is no choice for zero stars. I called at 11:00 AM Friday to make an appointment; called again at 2:00 PM, 3:30 PM and 4:45 PM. I finally got a voicemail message at 5:00 PM Monday that said to call back to make an appointment, which I did, and of course I got the office message center yet again. I own a business where I am in contact with hundreds of people. I will do my best to steer everyone away from this office.
