Patient Comments (5)
in Chandler, AZ |
My experience was not great with Dr Richardson. I was seen by the doctor for less than 5min and given an unclear diagnosis. She was not empathetic and she even undermined me as a patient. I was unfamiliar with the ear issue I was having, which is why I was seeing a doctor, and she made me feel unintelligent for asking questions. She was rude in the way she answered questions and grew impatient with me. I am really disappointed and left frustrated.

I have seen Dr Richardson twice for what I thought was a swallowing disorder or post nasal drip problem. She scoped me and immediately told me it was neither - it was an acid reflux problem. She explained how the problem manifests, and directed me towards a good resolution for my problem. She was very professional and knowledgeable all the time.

I went to Dr. Richardson with sinus issues and ringing in my ears. All she was interested in was selling me hearing aids. It must be a high profit area for them. Another Dr. actually checked me out thoroughly and diagnosed major sinus infection. It was not a good experience for me.
in Gilbert, AZ |
Dr. Richardson did an outstanding job of diagnosing and successfully performing surgery on two sinus conditions I experienced ... one involving a 'fungus ball' in a sinus cavity (which needed removal), and the other involving a deviated septum (which needed repair). Dr. Richardson was very thorough, professional, knowledgeable, and efficient throughout the process. She and her medical assistant, LJ, were very responsive and kind in the office and over the telephone. I am most grateful!
in Chandler, AZ |
Dr. Richardson was very knowledgeable, attentive to my issues, informative and took time to explain everything she was going to do and why she was going to use the procedures in her diagnosis of my condition. I have been battling sinus and ear infections almost constantly for the past 3 months and no other ENT had any clue why this was happening to me or what the cause might be, nor did they seem to care.
