Dr. Richardson is an amazing doctor who shows professionalism, true care for his patients, and absolute empathy for what they are going through. From describing what I've been going through for a few different things, he addresses each and everything with multiple options of care and told me how each would effect me. I saved the hardest difficulty I've been going through for last because I didn't want him to solely focus on that (a mental health issue), and he STOPPED typing in symptoms (like the other ones, even though he can listen, talk, and type at the same time) and looked straight at me, hands in his lap, and just listened while I broke down and cried and cried. He's known me a long time, and his empathy towards me was so heart- mending. After talking through what I've been going through, he suggested talking to my therapist and psychiatrist. I'm so very grateful for Dr. Richardson and his absolute attention and kindness.

I had a wonderful visit with Dr. Richardson. He listened to all I had to say, let me make decisions about my care, and spent an unexpected amount of time getting acquainted with me and my health concerns. This was only the second time I had an appointment with him; I had to seek out a new General Practicioner due to the fact that my long-time GP had suddenly left his practice at SW. So far, I am very pleased to have found Dr. Richardson.
