Dr Richardson was very kind and thorough. She performed a biopsy on a suspicious mole. I’m so glad they were able to see me quickly! The office staff was highly professional, too. I recommend this practice

Dr.Blakely was quite professional but yet friendly and engaging. She went right to the examination and was very thorough in determining skin risk that might need addressing. After a brief explanation the area was removed.

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.
