I am a large woman, over 300 lbs and he actually was talking to me thinking I was a patient who was 171 lbs. I have no confidence in him at all.

Fantastic

All I can say is I have been working in healthcare for 10 years and Richard is one of the best surgeons in Pittsburgh. He operated on a tumor on my shoulder and the pain was so minimal I couldn't even believe.
