Ratings for Dr. Matthew B. Richins
Had an appointment with this doctor. Even though I had already had x-rays a week before, they took more and the doctor was only in the room for less than 5 minutes. Did not seem interested in how my injury occurred or what previous treatment had involved. Charged me for x-rays and something called strapping telling me after the fact that insurance wouldn't cover this. Then told me to make another appointment for the following week. Seeking new doctor.
I was able to get an appointment in week, and he solved my problem within 3 visits. He took the time to explain my problem in words that I could understand. He did not try to talk me into surgery or anything I did not need. I was very satisfied and he did great at solving my pain. The only draw back is they did expect payment at time of service, which I suppose is fair.
I got an appointment within a week of calling. The doctor was busy, but on time and he took the time to explain my foot pain in terms I was able to understand. He was honest and upfront and told me that I did not need surgery as opposed to other podiatrists who only wanted to do surgery. He solved my foot pain and would recommend him to anyone.
Has similar visit today as the below post. I felt the doctor was more interested in a "consultation fee" than helping my injury. He saw me for maybe 2 minutes told me to reschedule for later date and then his staff said that would be $40 co-pay. I cancelled my next visit and have found another Doc. Terrible experience.
I do not believe the previous review. This doctor appeared to have no care of my foot condition. I am diabetic with several toes that are blue from lack of circulation and also numbness in those toes. Although I was wearing almost new diabetic shoes it was apparent to me that the first priority was to sell me a new pair for 400 dollar shoes. Those were ordered and I returned to get them "fitted" and that was all that was done, and that was by his nurse. The actual inspection of my feet and toes lasted about 60 seconds and was just a cursory glance. Nothing more. I told the referring physician and he stated he would not be referring anymore patients to him.
