Yesterday I went to my yearly physical feeling better than I have for years. I have no pain, I've lost weight, I exercise more, my anxiety is way down and my energy levels are thriving. I feel considerably better at 57 than I did at 37. I give credit to my physician who has taken time to listen to me. Dr. Richardson has truly helped me. I am very grateful to him. I am keenly aware how rare it is to go to a yearly physical feeling so healthy, especially in this day and age. I appreciate and thank the whole Avera team, and especially to Dr. Richardson.

They are always great avout squeezing me in for an appointment when i am not feeling well
September 06, 2021
For a first time consultation, I was disappointed in the lack of curiosity shown by the doctor. Not a great way to begin a relationship that should be based on knowledge and trust and definitely not what I am used to from my GP.

Dr. Richardson is the first doctor I've had in recent memory that didn't make me feel rushed and listened. I felt heard and that is rare. He's an incredible asset to Avera and Pierre.

Doctor listened to the concerns I had on an issue not related to what I came in for that I spoke with him previously on and I really appreciated that. Had to do with a heart scan. Took the time to explain more to me and it meant a lot.
