Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Richard's Care Philosophy

As a pediatrician, I am trained to care for the patient as a whole and enjoy caring for children and adolescents throughout their developing years.  I believe that healthcare is not about what your doctor can do for you , but what you and your doctor can do together as a team.  My job is to ensure that parents and patients have the information they need to make informed decisions about their health.  I treat each patient as an individual and take the time needed to provide a positive caring experience.  The most rewarding part of my day is working with and encouraging patients as they make healthy lifestyle choices.  I treat every patient like they are members of my family.  I truly love what I do!
