Dr. Richardson and his staff, Danielle his PA and his Kate his secretary in the office have been wonderful. They are organized, professional and they have moved the testing and surgical process along quickly.

Dr. Richardson treated me (the patient) and my husband, with concern and respect. He informed us based on the information he had.

Dr. Richardson is an excellent, caring and knowledgeable provider. During my brain surgery follow-up visit, he clearly explained to me what I needed to know. He also reassured me that my residual brain tumor and cyst could be completely removed, if, my symptoms reoccurred. I was advised not to worry and was told that my next MRI could be performed locally, so, that I won't have to drive into Pittsburgh.
