Dr. Scott Richard is an amazing doctor. He did my surgery and got rid of a very serious stage of cancer. He is very caring and shows genuine interest in how you are doing. He answers all of your questions and does not rush you which I appreciated. I definitely would recommend him as a doctor if you need gynecological surgery. Luckily he chose Philadelphia to work at.

Dr. Richard is the most caring doctor I have ever met. From the first time I met him after my cancer diagnosis, he made me feel like everything would be ok....and thankfully it was. I would highly recommend him to any woman looking for a truly compassionate doctor. You can't imagine how great he is until you sit and talk with him. He is the very, very best doctor and was/is my guardian angel. Thank you, Dr. Richard, for being you and caring so much about your patients.

Dr Richard is a warm, friendly, and kind doctor. He addressed my health issues quickly, provided options for care, and was forthcoming with important information. The surgery he performed went very smooth, and within 2 weeks, my life had returned to almost completely normal.. I would absolutely recommend him and his office staff as one of the most professional and caring group of people in medicine.

I had a robotic hysterectomy,Despite my unsure nature, he was very compassionate, patient and worked with me all the way to provide what was best for me.I wish I met him before I took the damn contraceptive drugs for many years with deteriorating side effects to my bones just so the monthly bleeding stopped and instead had the surgery which was only a one time discomfort that I even surprisingly recovered quickly from. I highly recommend him because he really is about the patient.

I had the pleasure of meeting this wonderful , compassionate, caring, honest, warm, young Doctor last night at Phoenixville Hospital, as he was tending to my dear friend I call Mum. From the second he walked into the room, I knew he was different from other Doctor's! Dr. Richard's your Mom should be one proud Mom! They don't make them like this anymore!!!! Thank you again for being so wonderful with my dear dear friend I call Mum !

Dr. Richards is a wonderful, compassionate, smart, caring and unselfish man. Before he even knew me (and I was searching for a second opinion) he took my phone call. He explained everything to me in detail, and assured me everything would be ok, and sure enough it was (Surgery on the only ovary I have left - 28 y/o F). This man has patience of a saint, and TRULY loves what he does. I cannot put into words how awesome this man is! I would most DEF recommend him!! Thank you Doc - <3 Gia !!!

Just the best. I was extremely nervous about pending surgery but Dr Richard explained everything in detail with patience, grace and humor. Also so responsive to calls to his office, even on a Sunday morning! What a lovely man and excellent Dr. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Knowledge, experience, explaining procedure and condition, bedside manner, follow up, accessibility are all excellent. I had serious 6 hour surgery to remove a tumor that was intrusive. He was forthright, but truly showed empathy and concern for me and my family. He is also very funny.

Love Dr Richard! I was 1 of his 1st patients at Magee hospital in Pittsburgh. I was his 1st fistula repair without a colostomy. This wasn't what he wanted to do but was at my request, I knew he could do it!!
