Patient Comments (1)
in Santa Cruz, CA |
Dr. Richman recently preformed surgery on my knee; removing several cartilage fragments - I can not praise him enough, on the superb job he did. He communicated every step of the way prepping and equipping me with the information needed to prepare myself physically and mentally for the operation and made himself readily available if I had any questions at all both pre and post surgery. I highly recommend him.
