They are really helpful and I wouldn’t go anywhere else for help. They call me by my first name and make me feel comfortable every time I go. They have saved three of my toes on my right foot that I was told I would lose by another doctor. The Wound Care Center took care of me and didn’t give up until I was healed. I owe so much to them for all the help they have done for me.

Hi I tried to kind of think it through that summary because Dr. Richard’s was not there April 1st, and I was down there the nurses and everybody took care of me, and they did a good job, but it was not Dr. Richard’s. That’s all. Bye.

I love Dr. Richards. I would not recommend him only because I feel he has to many patients now. Dr. Richards is the only dr. I have ever had that I truly trust, but lately he seems hurried and ever since he quit bringing his laptop I with him he tends to forget thing like referrals. I have heard that MMH has started limiting drs time with each patient, if true that would certainly account for the lack of time I get when I have an appointment. Personally I would rather wait an hour in the waiting room, knowing he is probably explains something to someone else,and knowing that when I finally get in he will give me the time I need too.

I do not like the receptionist. She messed up my husband … actually gave my husband the wrong medication list as first time I went out and got our appointments messed up. So, the receptionist is not doing a very good job.

Dr. Richards has been my primary doctor the the past 8 years. I started seeing him when other doctors kept telling me there was nothing wrong with my heart, the chest pains were panic attacks & stress test showed a healthy heart. Within 6 weeks of my first visit with him, I was up at Riverside in Columbus having a quad bypass. Dr. Richards listens & hears what I have to say. He literally saved my life.

This was my first visit to Dr. Richards and he was wonderful. He was attentive, as well as the staff, they were friendly, professional and genuinely nice. I feel Dr. Richards really took more than the usual time talking to me and going over my health issues and I felt like he was really trying to get to know me on a medical level. Any time he would ask a question or explain something to me he made sure I understood what he was explaining and he took the time acknowledge my answers. I’m very grateful I made the move to this doctor.

Yes, Dr. Richards has always been very thoughtful and very thorough and is exams and taking care of this and get the medication. I need to get into my prescriptions. Sometimes his nurses. Don’t get good feedback sometimes, but other than that, it’s a very good office, and I would recommend it to anybody. Bye.

I felt that I received excellent information and care from this physician. However, I do think that he should have recommended that. I get a blood test prior to my visit So he could review that with me at the time of my visit because I have not had a blood test for quite some time. Thank you.

I feel that doctor Richards is, he is very kind. And he list, does listen. And he’s very passionate. And he is concerned about any worries that I have and tries to work through them with me. And he’s very generous with his time if he feels I need more time. And he’s just an all-around, makes me comfortable. And not like any other doctor that is in a hurry or anything. And is not really paying attention to what I’m saying. And he’s been my doctor for a long time and I hope he’ll stay that way. And he really is a caring doctor and I’m very fortunate to have him. Thank you.

You’re being unfair because I didn’t call I’ve never had to call the office for any questions. I think they would answer any of them if I called but before I gave her the one because having never had to do it I would assume I would I wouldn’t be treated fairly. I have been otherwise thank you.

I have been to Wound care in Ohio and West Virginia and I have found I like Belpre, Ohio better than West Virginia. Ohio gave better care to me and saved 3 of my toes on my right foot. They put me in the chamber 5 days a week for 6 weeks gave me an IV for 6 was. They took better care of me then West Virginia. I had a sore on my foot and and it kept getting worse so I went to Belpre and they healed me within a month. I never waited more than 5 minutes but most of the time I went right back. With the love I feel there I wouldn’t go anywhere else . Thank you for the help I know they mean a Lot to and my family keep up the good work. I love all the nurses. Even if they aren’t working on me they will stick their head in just to say hi. They always make me feel special.
