This Physician performed a biopsy on my Nerve Sheath Tumor, she exceeded my expectations as a Surgeon. She has an excellent bedside manner and truly cares for her patient. I would highly recommend this Physician for anyone that needs a really strong and caring doctor. A. Gordon, Ft. Worth, Tx

I have multiple myeloma and broke my humerus bone. Two orthopedic physicians HIGHLY recommended a reverse shoulder replacement as my only hope. My oncologist recommended Dr. Richie-Gillespie, who explained to me that it was highly likely that a reverse shoulder replacement would not be successful for me with the myeloma. We patiently waited it out, my arm has healed over time WITHOUT surgery! She treats the patient holistically. We need more physicians like her!
