I would describe my specialty as being an “externist” as opposed to an internist. I focus on diagnosing problems of the limbs and spine including muscle, bone, nerve, and skin disorders. My work satisfaction comes from helping heal a chronic wound but also in helping others discover the reason for why they might be numb or weak. When I am not at work, I spend time with my family, singing, playing tennis, and being outside as much as possible.

Dr. Richardson explained the procedure very well but it was not her responsibility to diagnose nor recommend treatment. She assured me her report would be available within 24 hours; it was on My Chart before day's end and I was able to print it to provide it to my referring physician.
I would absolutely recommend this doctor and facility.
Dr. Bucci is very caring and helpful. I have recommended him to several friends and familly.
