Dr. Richardson is a great Dr., I recently switched my son to his care also.
September 02, 2020
Everyone from the covid 19 screeners to the physician were most helpful and polite

The questions about anxiety and depression are due to the pandemic. I don't spend all my time there. I have those feelings occasionally. And about the cost of prescription meds, I worry about that when I have to go see a doctor about something, I live on social security and I have very little budget to work with.
August 25, 2020
The doctor came into the room and never even introduced himself. It seemed he had already made a diagnosis in his head and didn't want to hear anything I had to say about my condition. He was rude, showed no compassion, and then said he would call in a prescription which he never did.
August 23, 2020
I am very pleased with the care Dr. Richardson gives.
August 22, 2020
Thank you all for working under such scary conditions. As for Dr. Richardson, he is the best. He listens and is patient. But moreover, he laughs at silly stuff, he has a light heartedness that is completely refreshing. Thank you to all.

The staff and Dr. went above and beyond the care in which I was expecting. They set everything up so that we could get the gallbladder taken out in a very timely manner.
