What People Say About Dr. Robert Richard, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was so displeased with my visit with this Doctor. I was sent to him by my physician after other specialists couldn't help me. He basically said sending me for an MRI was too costly at this point and wait and see if I continue to have problems. I was feeling so poorly at that point. I had told him that I felt like I was dying. He really was not helpful. Thank God that my ENT sent me for an MRI and discovered my life threatening BRAIN TUMOR. Two surgeries days later I am forever thankful that my ENT did the MRI. Shame on Dr. Richard.

Dr. Richard is a caring, compassionate doctor who has been able to help solve the mystery of my migraines. My pain level has gone from a 9-10 to a 3-4. I would highly recommend him.

I fell down the stairs last year and suffered head trauma, a very serious concussion, and some fractured/broken bones. I was referred to Dr. Richard because I was experiencing severe vertigo afterwards. I saw him on two occasions and he was friendly, took the time to ask me questions and to explain what he was doing and what particular exercises I should do at home.

Dr. Richards performed a nerve conduction velocity (NCV) 2 part test on my foot. He put 2 needles in my foot, & ran electricity into my foot, (above location where I have 2 screws), causing my ankle to break; bone marrow edema w/bruise to the talar head, as reported in 2 MRIs. He didn't tell me that my ankle was broken, he said my foot and ankle were fine, though my ankle hurt badly. It's been over a year for my ankle to heal w/o his help. Electricity & steel screws don't mix well.Run AWAY
