in Decatur, MS |
Excellent physician. Dr. Richardson is very knowledgeable.
Metairie, LA |
Dr. Richardson is completely detached from the patient care component of his job. He is dismissive and arrogant. He is too quick to perform an unnecessary surgery. The surgery he did was done incorrectly and with the wrong instrumentation and required a revision surgery from another specialist.
