I am a very complex case, with many and I do mean many health issues. Dr. Richards I do believe is taking a good approach on where to being. I find him kind, concerned and I truly believe he can help me get my health headed in a better direction. So I may be able to live a less painful life and live again not just be alive. I do believe that I will need more time that is allotted at visits due to so many health issues. But that will still be remained to be seen. As I said we have had just 2 visits so far just changed him to my PC. I have been changing all my doc's to OSU over the past 3 yrs. Even moved closer so the drive wasn't so far. I trust in OSU you have great me tremendously. I feel comfortable with Dr. Richards so far at this point!
