I’ve been a patient here for almost 20 years. When my primary care physician retired, I began to work with Dr. Richard. He is very professional, has a great bedside manner and I have always felt very well cared for in that practice. I highly recommend this group to anyone looking for a new family doctor!

Dr Richard has been my physician for just over 20 years. He literally saved my life when I came down with double-pneumonia. I was nearly dead and he hospitalized me and after a stay in the hospital under his care he brought me back to health. A very scary time for me and my family. Had it not been for Dr Richard I wouldn’t be here to write this review.

At the end of August, I will be with Dr Richard for 6 years. I have to say I know he listens to what I say, we discuss the situations and then make a decision together. I never feel rushed, he always takes time to make sure I understand what the next step is. I would highly recommend Dr Richard, in fact I have sent others to him. Thank you Dr Richard. Barb H

I have been with this practice for over 40 years. Dr Richards is extremely thorough, understanding and takes the extra mile to address your concerns. I live out of town and recently went to our local ER for migraine headache. They released me, said all was ok. The next day Dr Richard's intercepted this local hospital ER records and immediately alarmed his staff to contact me. We set up a teleconference call. As a result Dr Richards within one hour had me admitted to ER at Riverside. My blood levels were dangerously off and I was in the process of aneurism. I can't thank Dr Richards and his team enough for catching this oversight by my local hospital where I live. This could had cost me my life. All my family, children and grandchildren also have been apart of this practice.

Meet Dr. Richard in about 2017 because previous group kept changing doctors. They were having me come into the office 3-4 times a year. Dr. Richard looked at my record and said I only needed to be seen once a year! Would recommend him highly. Everyone in the office are professional and it's a very friendly atmosphere.
