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.
Thankful for the exceptional care from Dr. Richardson.
Dr. Richardson did great taking care of our little girl and her previous hernia in August and now we will be fixing the other one in December.
Dr. Richardson exudes confidence and competence, which helps to alleviate fears.
Dr. Richardson and his staff were very courteous and friendly and also very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to friends and family and we were quite pleased with him. Made us comfortable during a difficult time.
My child's Dr is excellent and takes the time with us and explains everything I would recommend him to anyone.
All of the staff was of the highest quality.
Dr. Richardson performed surgery on our son when he was two days old. He always took the time to answer our questions ... even when we asked the same one twelve times. Excellent doctor! Great with our son ... and us, too!
