Although a lot of Dr. Richards patients see him in a very negative way because he is direct and lets you know how it is going to work. We have always gotten along. Find myself defending him to other patients. I believe he trusts me to be honest with him. Even though I have done some stupid things he didn't judge me for it. I trust him thoroughly. He is a good psychiatrist and explains things very well, he lets me be in on the decision of what med to use. Others don't do that.
