Terrible experience

When I first met Melissa Richardson at my consultation, she seemed like a perfectly capable surgeon for performing a simple outpatient procedure. I could not have been more wrong. When I had complications following my surgery she was completely cold hearted, non empathetic, and unhelpful. She spent almost no time with me and during follow up appointments, did not explain things well, and made me feel as if the complications were my fault. To top it off, afterward, when I saw two other surgeons, they both told me that the wrong procedure/method was performed and that that was the cause of my post surgical complications. Incredibly frustrating and upsetting experience.

I was referred to her for a breast biopsy approximately three years ago. She lost the results. Two years ago I underwent a mastectomy (double). She did a terrible job
