in Piedmont, OK |
I recently went to Dr. Richards for a hearing loss problem. I was very impressed. He sat down with us and answered all of our questions and did not make us feel rushed in any way. He was very attentive to my needs.
in Broken Arrow, OK |
Made me feel very comfortable with my procedure and was very knowledgeable.
