Dr. Richer is very good. Very Gentle. He did both big toes at one visit with ingrown toenails. DIDN’T FEEL A THING! (How great is that?) Staff is awesome, friendly and competent.
If you ever need a Doctor for these problems, do yourself a favor and go to Dr. Richer

Absolutely love Foot, Ankle & Leg Center, they are THE BEST! Dr. Richer and staff are great. I would highly recommend them and I would not go any place else. Dr. Richer found that I had a blood clot in my leg, after I had gone to five doctors that didn’t seem to know about blood clots! Dr Richer possibly saved my life.
