Dr. Richardson was attentive to my son's pain and issues he is experiencing. He spent the time and attention to talk to us and explain what the treatment for my son's issues are and even drew pictures for a visual presentation. Excellent doctor!

Dr. Richardson explained the course of action we had to take very clearly. He listened to all I had to say first, which was nice. He was very personable with my daughter and myself, and was not in a rush during our visit.
We thought Dr. Richardson was wonderful. He was very personable. He answered all the questions we had and I think our son is not as anxious as he had been about the idea of his upcoming hernia surgery.

The people are really nice and sincere. I would recommend them to eveyone. The Dr takes time to go over everything.And explains everything very good also.
The Dr. was very thorough and made sure we didn't have any further questions prior to leaving.
always through, polite, reassuring, and honest
Dr. Richardson was absolutely wonderful. My husband and I often feel like we are not taken seriously as parents since we appear young. Most people do not understand the challenges we went through to get pregnant after years of trying and the struggles of infertility, they only see young people who have no clue what they are doing. Dr. Richardson never once made us feel that way. He talked about how scary your first baby is and put our minds at ease with our sons medical condition, telling him to just enjoy him and put this worry away for a while. He was so much more comforting than other doctor's we have seen who made what is likely a minor issue into a major one.
First time our child didn't have a panic attack while at the doctors. Excellent.
We sincerely Love Dr. Richardson and are very grateful to have being the physician caring for our son.
They had amazing care for my daughter. once you can get in to see him.
I don't have enough words to explain how wonderful Dr. Richardson I'd, I can't thank him enough for saving my son and making him healthy and happy again. He is the best would recommend him to everyone!!!! Thank you again Dr. Richardson you truly don't know how blessed we were to have you in our lives to help my son.
Even by son commented, Dr. Ward was excellent! Would absolutely recommend him - very impressed.
i felt the provider of my son's untreated hernia went very well
I LOVE Dr. Richardson! he's the best. My son has had to have numerous surgeries and Dr. Richardson is the best by far. he's very down to earth. He is also extremely intelligent and confident in his abilities. He doesn't sugar coat anything and does not give you false expectations. I would recommend him to anyone and I have!
Dr. Ward Richardson is an excellent physician. He answered all of our questions, drew pictures of my daughters upcoming surgery. This will be her first surgery she has had, and he showed to us that he is very caring, and understands teenagers very well and how to interact with them. I was very happy with how quickly we got in to see him.
The staff were very courteous and Dr. Richardson was very solicitous of our concerns. The wait time to see the doctor was over an hour. That is too long, especially for people who have a long way to travel.
