It has been a good experience all the way

August 09, 2017

This was my first visit with Dr. Robert M. Richardson for Essential Tremor. He made me feel very much at ease, examined my symptoms, explained DBS surgical procedure, the DBS candidacy evaluation I would need before surgery and took the time to answered all my questions in terminology that I understood.

Couldn't have had a better experience with the Doctor or Pa. Both showed how concerned they were with my condition and were so helpful in giving me an understanding of treatment.

excellant

July 12, 2017

Dr Richardson is phenomenal. I called the office that morning and he worked me into the schedule on the same day. He is incredibly bright, articulate, and compassionate.

June 14, 2017

We waited 2 hours before called to the exam room. We live 100 miles away and it added to the lateness of getting out of the city.

May 03, 2017

From beginning to end everyone was very professional and courteous, I would like to thank all involved with my procedures.

April 12, 2017

I was unable to evaluate Dr. Richardson due to his delay at my appointment time.
