Dr. Richardson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Richardson "I became interested in orthopaedics after I sustained an injury as a high-school athlete. My interest in helping others combined perfectly with my fascination for how the human body functions. I enjoy helping my patients regain their independence and ability to interact with the world around them by treating their hand and upper extremity injuries and conditions."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Richardson "Every patient is different. I explain conditions and situations fully to each patient and involve them in the decision-making process. Most patients have a pretty good idea what their problem is and how it is affecting their life. My job is to guide them to the best solution for their particular situation. I help my patients understand their condition so that together, we can make it better."

Patient Comments (7)

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...more
