Dr. Richardson's passion for medicine was born out of his appreciation for the complexity of the human body and his desire to work with and around people. "I always wanted to have a job where I could interact on a daily basis with all sorts of people," he says. "I like to do things with my hands; the traditional medical approach of giving a pill and waiting a month to see if anything happens didn't appeal to me, which is why I enjoy orthopedics so much. You almost instantly get to see the fruits of your labors."
A native of the mountain west, Dr. Richardson grew up in Kaysville, Utah before earning his undergraduate degree from the University of Utah. His approach to medicine is driven by a desire to truly connect with each patient.
In his spare time, Dr. Richardson enjoys staying active with his wife and four daughters. His hobbies include skiing, photography, golf and soccer.
