Dr Richstone was referred to me by a friend who had kidney cancer and Dr Richstone removed part of his kidney with a perfect recovery. I went to see him after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I saw several doctors and ultimately chose Dr Lee Richstone. I am cancer free and have had a great return of functions. Look no further he is "the man"!
