Very friendly. Explained my procedure thoroughly and answered all of my questions. I was a bit nervous before receiving 4 Botox injections (first timer) but I can say with all honesty I could barely feel any of the injections, amazing!

I keep coming back to see Dr. Richardson because she is so personable. I never feel as though she’s prescribing me a general diagnosis because she takes the time to discuss what my experience has been previously and always gives me a couple of viable options going forward.

Blakely Richardson was extremely kind and recommended a well thought out and logical plan for treatment about a issue I had been experiencing for the better part of a year if not longer. That is far more than I can sayabout the three previous professionals I saw for the same issue. She listened to my symptoms, took time to visually confirm the issue, and presented her thoughts and plan clearly and concisely. I left my appointment feeling confident she was committed to finding a resolution to the issue if our initial plan didn't address it quickly. I would certainly recommend her office to friends and family.

Dr. Richardson was very friendly. I was a little nervous because the office seems like they see more patients receiving Botox and chemical peels, but Dr. Richardson was very sweet and did a very through exam (even looking between my toes).My husband also went to Dr. Richardson and she helped him with a skin sensitivity issue he has had for several years and other dermatologists were not able to help him with.

The office staff was very friendly and professional. We were new patients and had to fill out a minimal amount of paperwork before we were seen. My only concern is that although I agree with the doctor's diagnosis, she had onlyseen a picture of him her nurse took. Time will tell if the diagnosis is correct and the medication works!

I was very impressed with the front office staff as well as with Dr. Richardson and her assistant, Allison. They were professional, thorough, communicated in clear terms and were very warm and caring. In fact, one of the things that impressedme most is that this is clearly a patient centered practice. This was my first appointment. It will not be my last!

While Ms. Richardson was pleasant, the staff at the front desk was not very friendly. They were a bit crude, impatient and constantly on the phone. There was little to no expression of customer service to the point where it wasunpleasant and unwelcoming. I do not foresee myself returning and would not recommend the office.
