Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Richards and his staff were wonderful! I was taken right in even though i was a few minutes late, the front desk staff was sweet and caring and the DR was attentive to my concerns. I didnt feel rushed and we discussed all my options for treatment. Highly recommend!
Dr. Richards reviewed all my symptoms, reviewed my x-rays, and examined my foot. He discussed treatment options with me and after applying one option he evaluated further to find a significant factor in my particular problem that no one else had bothered to check. Naturally, I am very pleased, relieved and hopeful that my foot problems will greatly diminish and will follow up with him as needed.
He's a fantastic doctor and has amazing/friendly/genuine bedside manner. Only waited 10 mins from my appt time to see the doctor. I got there 10 mins early too. Great nurse staff as well, super friendly.
My visit was efficient, quick, and an all around pleasant experience. Dr. Richards was friendly, personable, and expert. I had total confidence in him. His staff was equally helpful and efficient.
Dr. Richards was incredibly professional and knowledgeable, and his friendly and upbeat personality made me feel at ease from the moment that I walked through the door. He was able to quickly and efficiently take care of the issue that I presented, and I plan to recommend him to all of my friends or family.
I was 15 mins late to my appointment so perhaps that had an effect on my wait time (45mins). That said, was a great doctor trip.
He was great. Thorough and efficient. I would highly, highly recommend him if you need a podiatrist.
Dr Richards was great, really friendly, put me at ease and really knows his stuff!
This was probably the best doctor's visit ever.
Took his time with me, explained everything so I could understand and offered reasonable options for my care.
This was so wonderful. He was great. The office was beautiful and I'll be going back in a week for another check in.

Dr Richards office staff was friendly and attentive. I was seen quickly but I did not feel rushed at all. Dr. Richards was friendly and asked all of the right questions. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Richards diagnosed me almost immediately, was very attentive, and explained with ease how to remedy my ailing foot. I would highly recommend.
He is such a cool doctor. Very amusing!
This was my first visit with Dr. Richards. He was friendly, a good listener, and was interested in my presenting problem . As he quickly and efficiently ran through a battery of manual diagnostic tests he explained what he was doing and why, which ultimately led to a working diagnosis and treatment plan. I left the appt. feeling informed and educated about the cause of my discomfort and understood the treatment plan to be followed, with a return visit in a week to evaluate my progress. It was a positive experience.
Dr. Richards was very attentive and funny. I visited the day after an ankle sprain, hopping in on one leg and he offered relief. I felt confident in his medical opinion and highly recommend him.
Dr. Richards was awesome. Great bedside manner, quick and very friendly.
Great doctor, really liked him. Very quick and knowledgeable. Unfortunately a bit too long waiting time.
Great doctor! Very informative!
He is very nice, explains everything, has more equipment for diagnostic than any other podiatrist I went to in the past. He is very knowledgeable and gives advice and options.
He has very friendly bedside manner and put me at ease with my foot troubles!
The Dr suggested a chemical burn instead of electrocautery for a foot wart. I agreed, but after I had it, he let me know that I will have a burning pain for 1-2 days, gave me pain reliever and told me I will have to visit again in a couple of weeks to check that the point is clear. I would not have agreed to use this technique if i was informed properly from the beginning about these. I would have avoided the second visit and the longer process of taking care of the wart if i have done electrocautery. I have done electrocautery before and I did not have to worry about these.
He took his time and listened to everything that I had to say. He didn't rush me and was very professional.
He was awesome! I look forward to working with him.
Dr. Richards was great. It's rare to have a doctor to not give off the feeling like you're the next number in a line of appointments, but Dr. Richards took time to explain my foot issue and answered my questions. I hopefully won't need to come back but will definitely come back here if I do.
Dr. Richards is gregarious as well as clear about what he's going to do and follow-up actions that need to be taken. A++, would definitely visit again (though hopefully I won't need to!)
Dr. Richards has an excellent bedside manner, was efficient, and thorough. His passion for his work is evident and I'd be happy to recommend him to anyone!
Very clear and caring. Did not seam like a quick visit even though it was! Highly recommended!
Terrific. I have some problems with some things that were written down in the visit summary. I had no idea I had all that stuff beyond a history of gout, and what i came for today. I have a follow up visit next week. I'll ask him about everything that was written. I do have full confidence in him
Professional, personable, and informative. This was one of the finest treatments and physician experience I have had in years. A+
I felt he was very professional, friendly and compassionate.
He was very friendly and attentive. He explained my condition and treatment options very well. Would recommend him to anyone!
Dr. Richards is fantastic. He explained what was wrong with my foot and my treatment options in plain English and was happy to answer all of my questions. He's very relaxed and easy to talk to, and I have never gotten the sense that he needs to race off to the next patient. Highly recommended.
Dr. Richards quickly diagnosed the problem and very clearly explained it to me. His treatment worked very well and he has a great attitude and enthusiasm for his work.
Great experience. I'd recently run a marathon and was having foot pain. Dr. Richards was quick to see me, did a thorough exam with x-rays, and benefited from the fact that he was an avid runner himself. I'd absolutely book another appointment with him for foot issues.
He's great. Friendly, takes time to explain things, great sense of humor.
Very confident and answered my questions before I asked - good explanations/transparency throughout
Great bedside manner and very willing to take the time to answer all questions/concerns
