During this time, he also increased his knowledge of advancements in the podiatric and surgical fields through continuing education courses on topics including limb deformity and clubfoot correction.

Due to his stellar performance at Beth Israel Medical Center, Dr. Richards was chosen to serve as chief resident for a one-year term from 2012 to 2013. Dr. Richards is currently attempting to run at least one full marathon in each of the 50 states.

It was great. Both the assistant and the doctor were really professional. The doctor was funny and had a great bedside manner. I came in for one main issue, and also mentioned a few other things. He said well you're here now and took extra time to go over the lesser concerns. Will be seeing him again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
