I think the staff and the Dr. Richards have good hearts and love thier patients. However, they definitely have an older patient base and don't seem to welcome the younger age (I'm 29) very well. They work with lots of paper and little tech, which is hard for those of us who only ever have electronic documents, cards, etc. Their older clientele works really well for them and is definitely Dr. Richards niche. Sarah is the office manager (I think) and she does a really good job managing everything and understanding her Dr's preferences and needs. However, I would not recommend Dr. Richard to any Millennial. She was very annoyed at my providing insurance digitally, etc. I decided to leave the office before having to pay the co fee because I could tell it wasn't going to be a good fit for me. If you don't care too much about tech and being able to provide virtual copies of things, I do think she'd be a great doctor. I saw about 6-8 patients come in and out while I was there and they all seemed to love her.

The doctor asked good questions once I was in the exam room with her. What has made me give the lower score is that when I walked into the office I wasn't greeted and when I walked up to the window the doctor was sitting at the reception desk listening to voicemails very loudly on speaker, and made no attempt to quiet them when I walked up. She looked up at me and said "we will be with you, sit down over there" and nodded towards the couch in the waiting room. Another patient walked in right behind me and the doctor and this pateient began discussing the reason for her visit while walking back to the exam room. However I could hear their entire conversation about this persons health and asked the receptionist who showed up if it was commonplace to hear the whole exam happening in the other room? She hopped up and when to shush the doctor and patient and then closed the door to the exam room I assume. Mainly I feel my privacy would not be treated respectfully in the regular care of this physician. Also, the waiting room and exam room were cluttered with old magazines stacked 4 feet high. And the doctor was wearing yoga pants. I appreciate casual but this was lacking almost any professional decorum.

I was treated poorly as if I was a burden. She violated hippa law in front of me twice and when asked for a referral i was met with resistance and again as if i was bothering her. She has a dirty "exam room" with a busted open exam table. The office is cluttered like a hoarders house and very tight. I was there for a physical and wasn't given one and she wanted me to schedule again for it and i still didn't get my referral for my well women's exam. I work 5 days a week from 6am-6pm for my time is super valuable so this was not okay. She billed my insurance still for a for nothing!

What a disaster ...i get there on time for this?? The receptionist was good but it was downhill from there . She looked like hell the office was filthy she was dressed like someone lounging around the house. And talked like a bitter old bag. She misplaced her stesssa scope and when she found it under the table on the floor underneith some laundry. In the end i just wanted out of there so much i almost forgot my prescription!needless to say it was my first and last visit with that kook =/. Pass on this place unless ur drunk and u can say i ll have another round sir !

Once again, excellent care received from Dr. Marrie Richards and excellent service and support from her amazingly proficient and endearing assistant, Angie. I believe I have been a patient for about 15 years now and I can't say enough good things about Dr. Richards and the personal level of care and genuine concern she has shown me in that time. I highly recommend Dr. Richards to anyone looking for a general or family physician.

Office is well managed. Appreciated being able to use a Zocdoc type application to book appointment. It was easy to use, informative, and also provided the medical information forms needed to be completed prior to the office visit. Dr. Richards executed a thorough review of legacy information and provided a plan forward. Her to the point approach is very satisfactory.

Dr. Richards is very inconsiderate. She asked me why I came there and that I shouldn't have. She also asked why I did not go to my primary doctor; instead, in a very unsympathetic manner. Dr. Richards thinks you should only have one primary doctor so things do not get "confusing." First of all, you're PRIMARY concern should be to take care of any patient that comes to you, regardless of what they are bringing to the table. Second of all, there is NOTHING wrong with someone coming in for a second opinion. Third of all, my primary doctor is a male and I wanted to be seen by a woman for my certain case. Lastly, as a "doctor" you never make your patients feel lower than what they already feel when they are already scared or in pain of whatever they are coming to YOU for and that's exactly how she made me feel. Honestly, I was mistaken and thought she was a GYN, but either way of what I thought or not, she's still a female doctor and should've made me feel comforting. DO NOT recommend her to anyone, horrible!

The doctor took a phone call about her floors at home during our consultation. When I walked in I thought she was the crotchety old office assistant by the way she answered the phone and spoke to people. Do I need to tell you explicitly that I would not recommend this doctor?

I scheduled my appointment for two and wasn't seen until about 3:15. Aside from the front desk lady asking everyone to use cash or check because its what [the doctor] prefers, she was friendly. One of the men in the waiting room with me was joking about how the doctor's sweet spot is just before lunch, after that it's a waiting game. The front desk woman chimed in with a laugh, "yea, she's usually always 30 mins late". While in the waiting room, I could hear every conversation the doctor was having with each patient. My time with the doctor was very brief, she barely made eye contact, and looked on her phone for medications for me. She was extremely unprofessional. I would not recommend her to anyone. Ever.

There is ONLY ONE Dr. in the office and a room full of patients. Waste of money for her to take your weight, height, and blood pressure just to hear your reason of coming in then refer you to a specialist... what is the point of leaving a note for your reason to visit if you are going to turn me away. Money hungry??? Why schedule all your patients 30 mins apart if you cant see them in 30 mins... you must be a Dr. Consultant not a physician. Not only that, I had to refill out the same info provided on the website they allow scheduling. Like an hour in and nothing. Then take another patient in front of me because i left my insurance card in the car... REALLYYYY..... the crappy office fits the crappy service. THANKS FOR WASTING MY TIME!!!!

Doctor does not do blood draws and the assistant did not tell me that when I called and asked if they could complete a biometric screening. They didn't seem to understand that I didn't want to get my blood work done elsewhere because my insurance pays for my yearly bio metric screening and the lab would (and did) charge me separately. The whole experience was very strange, I ended up getting my bio metric screening (yearly checkup) elsewhere.
