Ratings for Dr. Marrie B. Richards
She is the worst. Rude, abrasive, quick. She told me that she didn't have a lot of time so make it quick when I went in to get checked. If you are even 10 pounds overweight avoid her! She will make it a point to tell you "you know you don't have to be overweight, this is your choice." She also told me that she wouldn't put me on birth control--even though it's what I asked for. Isn't that my choice? Worst. Doctor. Ever.
I really like Dr Richards for her straight forward, no BS attitude. She gets straight to the point, she listens and is very kind. And THANKFULLY she does NOT prescribe antibiotics as the first thing (in my case at least). I definitely recommend her.
I get why people think she's rude. She is no nonsense. I know I can walk in her office, list my symptoms, get a quick check and be out the door and on my way in 10 minutes flat. Beautiful. Yeah, she asked me after seeing her a second time for a sinus infection if "(she) needs to take me out back with the horses and shoot me" - it's a jooke, she's hardly gruff about it. She simply has a different way of interactign with people. The office had a cozy front room and none of the exam rooms looked dirty by any means... I will be(and have been) back when I am ill.
I'm not sure I would go back. She's not a pleasant person, nor does she have much patience with questions. It was offputting that the paper on top of the exam table had someone's handwritten phone # on it, so thanks heavens she directed me to a chair. I did like the receptionist, and I thought the waiting room was cozy. I found it odd that the medicine was out in the open, with a sign warning prosecution if you stole any. Maybe she should just put it in a locked cabinet!!!!
I have been going to Dr. Richards for 28 years! She is not mean. She is the Dr. Phil of doctors. She tells you the truth, not what you just want to hear. She is a no BS person. SO if you are sensitive and require extra complements, etc. then I would go see someone else. I am in and out. She gets to the point, and you are done.
I've been using her for years now and I like her. She is absolutly no b@llsh!t which is why I think some folks call her mean. She gives it to you straight by which I mean tells you what you need to be doing and doesn't sugar coat it. I actually appreciate that more than someone who will just coddle you. I'm a man and recently brought my daughter there who likes her attitude as well. Her office is a little shabby but I think that's how she keeps rates low for those who don't have insurance. And I love that she's not in the Medical Center so parking is free.
She's a very mean doctor, very mean. She spent little time with you with no patience at all. I even didn't finish my words. I've never seen anyone this rude to me upon my life by far, and who is even get paid by ME! DEFINITELY will not return any more!!!
