 |  Why is he still allowed to practice medicine???  |  show details
Nov 26th, 2013

I'm not sure how he ever got to be a doctor or why in the world he still has a license. He is absolutely the worst doctor I have ever seen. I moved to Massachusetts and somehow ended up seeing him. His idea of a physical exam is to do as little as possible and bill my insurance company for as much as possible. He looked in one ear, listened to my heart for a few seconds and that was pretty much it. And most of the time he spent complaining about the company he works for and how they restrict his time with patients. He spent half the time allotted for me trying to figure out how to find things on his computer. I suspect some of the problems here are the poor care in general that comes from the Signature Medical Group. And there is also blame on Dr. Lords, who really doesn't know what he's talking about. I also saw him for another problem which he totally got wrong - something I found out when I went another doctor. I have heard many complaints about him since then and have since switched to a much better doctor. This guy really has no business practicing medicine and I hope the state will rid of us this disaster pretending to be a doctor before his malpractice of medicine results in someone dying.

this doctor needs to loose his license to practice medicine the state of Massachusetts for he is incomptent and not trusting at all and will be the reason my mother is having the heart issues for giving her medicine such as Vicoden with Tylenol for which she as a allergic reation to. TAKE CARE OF YOUR LOVED ONES HEALTH BUT NOT WITH THIS DOCTOR

I have been going through doctor after doctor and i was with Dc. Richard Lords for not that long. He does spend time with you going through all your needs but seems to forget most of them and he is not clear on diagnosis he quesses but all i can say he is nice !! thats it most people are nice but he didnt help me out with the needs i needed also waiting in there for 2 hours for a follow up and then he comes in and dont talk about what i was there for also the staff are rude but there are two nurses there and there awsome but there just the nurses keep in mind!!
