Specialties

Dr. John P Richards has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

The office staff is extremely rude and acts as if you're a burden to them. They over book, to the point of all the rooms are full, and so is the waiting room. You wait excessively long to get in a room and even longer to be seen when you're there. Dr. Richards acts as if you are also a burden to him. He is rude. I dont recommend this office.

Staff is questionable. They do not return calls, they do not smile, not professional at all. Love the Dr., but since he keeps these people when people say something to him I think he doesn't care.

Staff lacks courtesy to return calls. Almost no communication between staff. Unlikely requests will be considered unless you are able and lucky enough to catch Dr. Richards himself. Staff really talks down to patients.
