She’s an amazingly good clinician and has excellent communication skills. Northwestern might consider her transferring patients differently. We could easily stay with the previous system that is more convenient.

Provider wasn’t wearing appropriate attire (no white coat), long hair not tied. She didn’t appear interested in the patient. No eye contact. Seemed rushed. It was my first visit and she hardly asked any questions about my condition. Spent time typing and looking at the computer. The physical exam seemed very brief and not thorough. She didn’t listen to my concerns and dismissed me when I brought up questions. I doubt I’ll be coming back to see her. It’s unfortunate because I’ve been with NW Rheumatology for 8 yrs and always had a great experience with my providers.

She is amazing. Young, beautiful, very chatty, caring and smart. The whole package. She genuinely cares about the patient. I was only diagnosed 9 months ago with scleroderma and have been a little scared and probably depressed ever since, but just her tone and confidence puts me at ease. I’m scared, I’m grieving and nobody gets it but her... I’m grieving myself, the old Sue, the one that doesn’t have scleroderma

Very good Doctor with a strong educational background, medical training and professional experience. Dr. Richardson was easy to talk to and spent a great deal of time with me. She listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I feel very lucky to have a Scleroderma specialist in Chicago that works with a research team for the disease.

She is the best. She never quits. She explains everything in detail. She answered any question that I had as well. She’s one of the best doctors I have been too…and I’ve been to a lot trust me. She is so personable and an actual human that cares. I have found most doctors are robots and get want to get in and get out. Not her. She actually cares and made me feel like how I was feeling actually mattered. I will never go to anyone else. Ever!
