Went for a toenail extraction after it had half came off. Dr Richards bedside manner is great. He is super thorough in explaining everything, comes really prepared and makes you feel at ease. I appreciate his integrity too in advising againsthammertoe surgery until absolutely necessary - a lot of other podiatrists do not have the same integrity. His nurse, Daryl is also delightful! And the office system of emailing you notes afterwards is very helpful!

I had several visits with Dr. Richards for a painful growth underneath my foot, pain that slowed my running regimen. Dr. Richards was extremely thorough in both the procedure and in his knowledge of my problem. It was a slow processand I had several follow-up visits after the initial but the problem is gone. Dr. Richards is also very professional and personable, very unlike some doctors that condescend and treat you like a moron because you’re not a doctor also. I am very grateful to Dr. Richards for helping me get back “on my feet again” and I highly recommend him.

This Doctor was able to address a problem I had struggled with for almost one year. After 4 different doctors (3 dermatologists and an allergist) over the past year, this is the only doctor who quite efficiently seems to have addressedit. In the course of one week treatment, the symptoms have completely subsided and my feet are already healing. So glad I found him and recommend him highly!
