"I have gone to see Dr. Richardson 3x already since having my 3 week old baby. As a new parent I get nervous about everything and Dr. Richardson has answered all my questions, knew right away how to help my baby feel better, and does a thorough exam every time. Very happy for the peace of mind she gives me."
