Dr Richards helped me with my sinuses after only 2 visits. She is an awsome person. I was seeing another ent for a year and he did nothing but take my co payments and milk the visits. I was misarable for a year. She fixed me within a couple of months. Thank you !!!! I can sleep again!

My ophthalmologist referred me to Dr. Richards for an infected tear duct earlier this month. After waiting an hour, I sat through the standard eye exam with an assistant. When I declined to have my eyes dilated (my other Dr. did this already and dilation to see my retinas has nothing to do with a tear duct issue - he might as well have been insisting on a foot xray or colonoscopy!). Dr. Richards outright refused to even see me or even look at my infected tear duct unless I dilated! Horrible!
