My experience with Dr. Richards was great. I had surgery on both of my eye lids in September. Dr. Richards explained the process and what to expect. She did a fantastic job and the surgery was a nice experience. She stated that I would have no pain and she was right. I followed her instructions and I am glad to say that everything went well. I would highly recommend Dr. Richards if you are thinking about having eye lid surgery. She is great.

Dr. Richards treated me for basal cell carcinoma on my eyelid. Her diagnosis and surgery plan was fully explained to me and in terms that I understood. Three weeks after surgery there is no scar or signs of surgery. Dr. Richards is a skilled surgeon, a good physician, and an excellent doctor to patient communicator.

My daughter was in an incident that caused her tear ducts to be torn. She had to have surgery to repair them and have stents put in. I was so very nervous about the entire procedure and process. However, Dr. Richards was very easy to talk to and she spoke clearly and in terms that we could understand. She always made us feel comfortable and explained what was going to happen. Dr. Richards is VERY good at what she does and we could not be happier. My daughter said she was the nicest doctor!
in Roanoke Rapids, NC |
Dr. Richards was very clear on explaining the problem with my eyes. She is very professional. She took her time and was very patient with me in trying to answer her questions. She explained to me exactly what would make my eyes and that I do not need surgery for the bulging at this time. I felt very comfortable with her.

After an eye injury, my son was sent to MCV pediatrics and Dr. Richards was called for an emergency surgery. She was very patient, clearly explained everything to me and my son, and took care of everything quickly.
