Crestwood, KY |
Dr Richardson took time and explained the procedure and recovery time. There were zero complications and the surgery was 100% successful.
in Elizabethtown, KY |
I trust him and couldn't ask for a better person and doctor. Very professional and helpful. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone.
in Louisville, KY |
Dr. Richardson is compassionate and patient. He is very thorough in explaining any procedure and what to expect during follow-up or rehab.
in Louisville, Ky |
Dr Richardson has been wonderful throughout this difficult time for me. I think what I like most about Dr Richardson is that he thinks of surgery as the past option. He's not just trying to book surgies and make a ton of money but rather is genuinely concerned about the best option for each individual patient. Dr Richardson has always been very available and gone out of way to make sure that I was getting what I needed. His staff is amazing as well. You can tell they love what they do.
