I selected 5 minutes, but my wait time is usually less than that. I am a long time patient and love Dr. Richarme. She always has time for me to discuss any issues I am having which makes me feel she really cares about my well being. She explains treatment options in detail and is very thorough in my examination. I feel she is my friend as well as my doctor.
