    Dr. Richards listened to my concerns and examined my affected arm. An ultrasound revealed what he suspected. We discussed treatment and he immediately proceeded with an injection and a physical therapy schedule. He emphasized if I had any problems or questions to contact him. Thank you, Dr. Richards.
