    Having surgery was a very unusual experience for us so a little more explanation and time to discuss situation would have been nice. Dr. Richardson appears to be exhausted by a very demanding work schedule. The quality of his surgery seems to have been excellent.

    I hope I never need another surgery, but if I do, I would go to *Dr. Richardson. He is skilled, caring & a great communicator.
