Dr. Richardson and his PA Danielle Wagner are excellent. They communicate well with patients, help to explain things, are understanding to concerns, and have a very good demeanor. The brain surgery Dr. Richardson has performed for me truly has changed my life. I will recommend their office and care to anyone.
