    very pleasant experience.

    I had seen several doctors and specialists before I met with Dr. Richards and he was, by far, the best at listening to me, explaining the issue, and answering my questions.

    The only comment I have is an hour wait time in office for a 10-minute doctor visit.

    the physician and staff were very professional.

    Trying to get answers about my CT scan is very frustrating. I still haven't heard anything and I'm still in tremendous pain. I have called three times and everytime they say we will call you back. I think I need to find a different provider.

    Dr. Richards took the time to hear about my pain. He took time with me when no one else would. Surgery skills were exquisite.

    During visit, he indicated one plan of action, following tests, plan was not discussed again, leaving me with no explanation or plans to correct problem.

    Dr. Richards was very knowledgeable. He spent a lot of time going over treatment and he was very good to follow up in the office and make sure every thing was going well and all questions were answered. He is a great doctor.
