Patient Comments (2)

Dr Richards was excellent to go to. He listened to my needs and explained things well so I felt informed on my decision to have surgery.

Dr. Richards was very unkind, belittling family members during a pre op at rhe hospital and again at the hospital. Practically yelling at the family members. I would never trust him again, or spend the time or money to deal with him!
