I had a great experience with Dr. Richardson & office. I arrived to a friendly and organized administrator. Did not have to wait. His assistant & x-ray tech were quick & professional. Dr. R spend time explaining my fractures, healing time, and could’ve casted my wrists with his eyes closed. He is kind, personable, and extremely proficient/skilled doctor. Would recommend him to anyone.

I was reading the reviews and noticed someone else mentioned the disappearing review... this, too, happened to me. I reviewed him a year ago and it has disappeared. He did a lousy, botched job with my surgery. Had to go to another orthopedic surgery for correction. Will see if this reviews remains up. Bottom line I guess you cant trust reviews.
