Best ophthalmologist I´ve ever had!

Dr. Richter is a terrific Doctor. She fit me in to her schedule on a busy Monday when I had concerns about an eye issue. Dr. Richter took the time to thoroughly evaluate my eyes and explain what was happening. She put my mind at ease and arranged a followup appointment.. I´ve been a patient of Dr. Richter´s for a few years and every time I see her she treats me with kindness and professionalism. She´s very good at her profession and I´m grateful to be under her care.

Dr. Richter is an excellent provider, and my sessions with her are always a nice experience. She is well informed, and her explanation of procedures and my prognosis are invariably good. I have already recommended her to friends and family.

This was a routine eye exam so there wasn´t much to talk about. This was also the first time I´ve seen Dr. Richter. I´ve seen a lot of eye doctors over the years and she is very good. She´s knowledgable, courteous and helpful. She thoroughly examined my eyes and answered all my questions.
