Dr. Richards, a specialist recommended to us for skin cancer surgery. This was a followup visit after surgery. He was very good - there's a song by Carly Simon - "Nobody Does it Better" applicable here.

Dr. Jon Richards and his nurse X are terrific. They listen to my concerns about my health and provide suggestions when issues arise. They also are concerned about my wife and make sure we both understand the pros and cons to all treatments. Dr. Richards is one of the most empathetic and compassionate doctors I have ever seen. He is terrific and so is X. I would give them both 10's on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the highest/best score possible. They are the reason I continue to receive treatment with Lutheran General. I have also seen Dr X. He too was a terrific doctor. He also we made sure my wife and I understood the tests and the ramifications to each possible outcome. I am very happy Dr. Richards referred me to him.
