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.

Wonderful experience with the doctor
Relief to finally get answers for my pain!
She was very professional and explained everything as she went through the nerve test. So I would know what to expect and how it may make me jump a little. Before the test looked at my wrist and asked if I felt anything anywhere she touched. After the test we talked about a MRI which I declined until a later date after we get the nerve test results. Then if I need a MRI we'll get an appointment set up.
Time there was handled very well. Results or care were not discussed. Apparently is sent to neurologist so I have not heard results.
One of the best experiences I've had while in the process of determining my condition.
Very easy to understand. Great bedside manner.
Dr. Richardson was very easy to talk to and explained everything she was going to do.
