Patient Comments (2)

This was a 2nd opinion visit for me& he took on the same attitude as the previous physician I saw within another health system. His demeanor, word choice & tone made me feel like I was a waste of his time. The visit started with a medical student assessing me. No problem there except I wasn't asked if I was ok with it by anyone. Following a 15 min wait I saw the doctor. I wasn't impressed with his lack of assessment and time spent with me followed by a curt "good luck" as he walked out the door
Perry K Richardson, MD, a tenured faculty member at the GWU School of Medicine and a Doctor in the truest sense of the word has proven, in virtue of my case, that there are times in doctoring when the pen is mightier than the stethoscope. The extraordinary report he wrote following a consultation for chronic pain/central sensitization phenomena from 6 concurrent WC orthopaedic injuries so impressed 3 Virginia Judges that same ORDERED the carrier to authorize fixing my R-shoulder, L-SIJ & L-hip.
