    I can honestly say Dr Richards office is the worst experience I have ever encountered in my life with a physicians office. I've tried to be patient and give them the benefit of doubt but my entire experience is ridiculous! To start I was on hold for 20 minutes to make the initial appointment. When I get to my appointment they were running 1 hour behind so I had to sit and wait. Not feeling good up to this point with the experience of scheduling and now waiting. Dr Richards was friendly an

    Dr. Richards was so good at going over and explaining all our options and helping us make a informed decision. Once he preformed the surgery he was with us through every step and made us feel at ease and confident. I would recommend Dr. Richards to everyone in need of a general surgeon.

    I absolutely loved Dr Richards, he was so genuine and kind. He took the time to sit down and explain in detail what exactly the procedure I needed would entail and was so patient in answering all of our many questions in such a scary unknown period in my life. Just before being wheeled into the operating room, he was there to assure me that everything would be okay. He made me feel well cared for before and after surgery. I wish he could be my primary care physician he's just THAT wonderful!

    He is the best doctor my husband could have ever wished for. He is so patient and calm and very attentive. He did a surgical procedure involving cancer and explained everything in great detail with pictures. The procedure went very well. The after care was excellent as well. I wish he could be our family doctor for everything!
