What People Say About Dr. Richard Ress, MD
Reply
Dr. Ress, has been my primary care physician for over 25 years. He is kind, caring, pleasant and very knowledgeable. I managed to cardiology practice for many years and I know what a good doctor is and he fits the bill. He is no longer in Norwood Mass., but rather at the BU office in Kenmore Square. I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was for me to get there.
