Dr. Richardson is likely very capable. I always feel he's in a rush to get to the next appointment. I have learned to come very prepared for him with my questions listed so I do not forget anything. I also think it is strange that he never gives any advice on lifestyle changes I should consider or make sure I do or continue to do. For example, he always asks, "do you salt your food?" I say yes and he just moves on to his next question. I would think he would caution me at that point

Dad is 93 yet Dr. Richardson did not dismiss us or our concerns chalking it up to "old age." He listened, showed concern & empathy. Realized something going on not all related to old age. Showed RESPECT!

Dr. Richardson sometimes talks too fast and I have to ask him to repeat himself.
