I ordered a Go Kit in 11/2016. I received my results in 12/2016 and attempted to schedule my consultation time with him. It took 4 calls on my part and over a month just to get a date set. Once set, my appointment was cancelled and rescheduled 5 times so I finally called in February to initiate a refund. It processed in April. Absolutely would not recommend Dr. Richman as this is the worst experience I’ve ever had with a medical professional. So disorganized and lacking in customer focus.

I haven't seen Dr. Richman recently but I understand he had a trauma to his hand and has had 1 or 2 operations. My family and I pray for his recovery because there is not a more knowledgeable, caring, sensitive doctor to be found anywhere. He prides himself on always being available but I know since his father past, who was also a proud patient and his best friend, things have been hard. I hope all his other patients understand that he is a gift and is irreplaceable

Dr.Richman is clearly the brightest, most knowledgeable, and caring Doctor I have ever been too. I have been so fortunate because he can manage almost all medical problems even though he is a surgeon. What makes he different from all other doctors is his humility! He has every right to have a big ego but is never afraid to say I don't know but he will soon find it out. I understand he had an injury to his hand or arm and has had surgery and I pray he will get back to normal because we need him
