Dr Richards is s great doctor. He is very smart and great at making sure your needs are met. He understood what was important to me and made surre it was covered. Very knowledgeable and always put my needs first even when it meant rearranging his time so I only had to go under anesthesia once. Highly recommend!

I was in a coma when my husband was told, in a very insensitive way by the pulmonary doctor assigned to me, that I may not make it through the night. The outcome of which was that he fired the other ICU specialist and hired Dr. Richards. Within a couple of days, I was awake, off the respirator, and talking!
