I really love the fact that they are all very nice people that work here, and they are all caring. It's a clean facility, you don't have to wait for a long periods of time. Dr. Richards started seeing me when I had complications, and he was very thorough in his explanation of what I was going through. When it came down to it and I needed surgery, and emergency surgery on top of it he kept me alive, and he kept my family informed about my situation and what to expect. I highly recommend!

I became pregnant and chose this practice for the convince of the equipment in the office. After a couple of visits with Dr. Richards I could tell that he does not care or listens to his patients. I talked to a friend in the healthcare business who confirmed my feelings when she said he has a reputation for a terrible bedside manner. A year after having a baby, I needed surgery. He did not even stick around to tell my husband how it went. I tried to switch but their practice forbids switching

Recently had a hysterectomy surgery by Dr Richards and was very impressed with his experience, skill and explanations of the procedure and genuine attention to my issues and concerns. He was just as considerate and kind at my post - surgery follow up appointments. I would highly recommend Dr. Richards to others.
