Best of the best, he does not have a PA (which I like). He spends time, explains things. I had knee surgery and my knee looks and feels amazing ! He is very caring, takes time to listen to his patients. I can't say enough good things about him.

Dr. Richmond preformed surgery on my knee, I can't say enough amazing things about him. Very caring attitude, explained everything to me, after surgery sat with my family member and explained what he did (since it was a bit more than "we" expected). His office assistant Katie is VERY helpful and very nice. Post-op I had to call his office 2 times with questions and Dr. Richmond was out of the office and the covering physician got back to me, and had someone call me the next day to see if my symptoms had got better. I am still in recovery mode, but so far I am very happy with my surgical outcome. And I am very HAPPY I came to Dr.Richmnd to fix my very swelled and painful knee.

Second to none

Friend from a pharmaceutical company recommended him. I had fluid build up and a staph infection in the knee. The first doctor did two scopes, which did nothing to ease the issue. Was told that I had to push harder in PT to bend the knee. On a second opinion to Dr Richmond, he quickly discovered scar tissue that had been missed by the first surgeon. Pushing harder in PT would have resulted in breaking the leg. Dr. Richmond corrected the issue, and I am now back running.

My daughter, who happens to be an ice hockey goalie in college, tore her ACL. Dr. Richmond performed the surgery. He and his staff were amazing and I highly recommend them if you need his expertise. I had to contact the staff after the surgery for additional questions and they were always polite and answered my questions. I even had to call the hospital late on a Friday night and the on call doctor returned my call within three minutes. We are thankful for Dr. Richmond and his highly qualified and professional team.
