Dr. Richardson has consistently shown good bedside manner, respect, concern, and even remembered a story I told him from my previous visit 6 months before. The nursing staff went above and beyond to resubmit my lab order even though it was the lab's fault, which I found out later. it was Halloween when I visited and the reception staff were joking about their car-ear costumes and seemed to be enjoying their job. Kudos to the entire team for making my visit smooth, inviting, and thorough.

I was looking for a new primary doc, and I have a pretty complex medical history. Dr Richardson was the 3rd doc I'd visited in my search (My current primary was retiring, and I've been looking for someone with whom I thought I could communicate well, would coordinate my care with various specialists and who'd be willing to take me on as a project. Dr Richardson was awesome! His care team was also exceptional. His medical assistant was great and explained how the clinic works. His scheduler was great as well, especially since he gave me referrals to two other docs! I left feeling like I'd finally found a doc who heard my concerns, took the time to walk through my medical history, answered my questions frankly, and whose support staff were equally professional and kind.
