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.
