    How was your appointment with Dr. Richards?

    Dec 30, 2022
    I love doctor Richards, he is awesome at what he does and he is willing to fight the insurance companies and anything or one that gets in the way of his pateints getting the help they need. I am 8 days out from surgery and they took stitches out today. I can use my rt. hand more now than before the surgery. I'll see him in 4 weeks to make sure everything is still working and doing great! He is a kind and caring Dr. who works for his patients and not the insurance company like other Doctors do. I stromg advise anyone having issues with their hands to book an appointment with Dr. Richards, because he's the best! I've had 4 hand doctors and he is fantastic!
