Dr. Richardson was an excellent doctor. He answered any questions I had and took the time to explain my condition and how to fix it. I would recommend him to any friends of mine.

Dr. Richardson is a very good doctor and his assistant, Jonathan, is always very patient with me. The staff at the San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates is very nice. I'm very happy with the care they've given me. I'm very glad I'm here, because I'm getting to that age where my eyes are getting worse. But they take care of me very well.

After seeing her optometrist, my mother was told she needed cataract surgery and was referred to Dr. David Richardson. She was very scared of losing her vision. I accompanied her to her visit so I could translate since she only speaks Spanish. To our surprise his nurse (Ana) and Dr. Richardson are both bilingual. She was afraid going into surgery, but felt so relieved when she saw Ana in the surgery room. She said Ana held her hand and felt very comfortable just knowing that someone whom she knew and cared about her was near her. My mother is so pleased with the results and has convinced my dad to go and see Dr. Richardson. He is the only one my family would recommend for your vision problems.

Everything is so much brighter and clearer after cataract surgery. I think I can paint again with both eyes.
