Lithonia, GA |
Dr. Richard is a wonderful doctor. He is truthful, kind and caring. His staff is also very kind and caring. I feel honored that he preformed my gastric sleeve surgery.

Had an open gastric bypass 13 years ago performed by Doctor Richard. He is a great man and an even better surgeon. I highly recommend his entire medical team. I was 410 lbs at pre-op. Now at 13 years post op, I am 226 lbs. So because I've kept it off, I know you can as well! God Bless!
