Patient Reviews
Mar 16, 2024
Dr. Richards is probably the best ophthalmologist I've received treatment from. At every visit, she listens, assesses, and then walks you through every detail of a comprehensive treatment plan. This care is also experienced by the Residents and Nurses working with her.I suffer from severely dry eyes, and over time, this has caused my eyelids to droop to the point that it is difficult to see. After helping me treat my dry eyes, she also offered to adjust my lids. The surgery and recovery were seamless and straightforward, and I now have better vision. My dry eyes are doing much better now, and it feels like I have another new start in life with these healthy eyes of mine.Bless you, Dr. Richards!

What’s a board certification and why is it important that my provider has one?

A board certification represents a provider’s dedication to ongoing training in one or more specialties, including the completion of intensive exams.
