Very professional and not commercial-feeling. Strongly recommended.

Best Dr. in California for skin cancer care and removal. I have had 3 MOHs procedures performed by Dr. Richardson and they all turned out better than expected! He has an easy going personality and bedside manor. I would refer any and all family and friends to his care for skin cancer concerns.
