The DR/PA showed more concern and care about my health issues then any other Dr. I have seen.

Caryl Richards is a highly skilled, intelligent medical professional in whom I have total trust and confidence concerning my medical issues. She has solved problems for me that no other doctors were able to bother with, and she goes the extra mile and actually does research, even in this day & age of "15 minutes per patient"!! She is a great, big jewel in The ClevelandClinic's crown! I hope you know what you have!

Dr. Richards is the gold standard of professional, highly personal care. She was invaluable in assisting me in finding a Urologist within the system and is truly concerned about my overall health. A++

Ms. Richards was very proactive and scheduled a chest xray and blood work which assisted Dr. Riad, my Cardiologist, in adjusting medications to address recent issues. Ms. Richards took steps to insure my health issues were immediately addressed. Very well done thanks to her actions. Excellent.
