Waterloo, Ia |
Dr. Richardson has a very distinct voice. So distinct in fact that I overheard his entire conversation about golf while I sat in my exam room, unattended, for 40 minutes. I eventually walked to a desk and informed them that I hadn't yet been seen. Overheard Dr. being informed, stating that I was next. Surprise surprise, he walked in 30 seconds later, stating that he had fallen behind on patients. Mind you this was a 10 AM appointment. So.... he forgot I was even there.

Well… I went in for a prostate checkup when I a sleight elevation of the PSAs on a recent blood test. Ended up getting a biopsy done (results were negative), and I thought Dr. Richardson was excellent, prompt, clear, providing good explanations and insight, and I'd recommend him to anybody.

Dr gave me zero instructions for providing samples after vasectomy. I took samples into his office and his nurse had to explain to me that they needed to be delivered to the hospital instead of the office. She also explained to me they need to be one month apart and delivered to the lab within one hour. This is all information that was not explained to me before, during, or after the procedure by Richardson

I'm here for a follow up appointment and have been waiting for 2 hours between the waiting room and exam room. Overall experience is very unsatisfactory.
