Dr. Richie Says:

I take great pride in my bedside manner and do my very best to ensure every patients has a pleasant and educational visit.  My job as a surgeon is to educate patients of their conditions as well as their options for treatment.  I would like every patient to leave their visit feeling that they have a better understanding of what brought them in and also feel comfortable in their treatment plan.
