Dr Richardson did cataract surgeries for my mom. He was very thorough on his examination and always very pleasant to talk to. My mom was able to watch TV a couple of hours after surgery and the procedure was smooth and pretty much pain free. His office assistants are also helpful and gave us very clear instructions for how to apply eye medications. The only reason that I didn't give a 5 star review is that he no longer takes medicare insurance. Our overall experience with him was good.

Hi. My name is Mayme Ringis. I have been coming to Dr. Richardson's office, and Dr. Pritchard's, for many years, and I really have great confidence in both of them!

My husband and I are both having our cataracts removed on the 21st of July. Dr. Richardson gave us a great CD to listen to at home, and it's beautiful. I told him, he should go into that business because he had such a wonderful voice, and it was so relaxing and very informative. I think everybody should come to him!

When I first met him, because I had heard about him, all my friends had come to him, he walked in the door and I said, "Oh, I thought you'd be older." He laughed and I said, "Well, I've heard about you for years." He's done 2, 000 cataract surgeries, so I feel very confident when I scheduled to have mine done.

I don't know of anything else to say other than all of his help is wonderful. He has Jonathan Hall, who is just fantastic! And Ken too! They??re so patient with older folk and they really do do a good job!

Hi. My name is Linda Squibb, a patient of Dr. Richardson's. I first met him about five weeks ago. I came to him because I was experiencing some floaters in my eye, and I wanted his opinion as an ophthalmologist on the floaters. So he came in to the exam room and introduced himself, a very pleasant man. He explained what he was going to do before looking in my eyes. Indeed he found the floaters, and we discussed that. He was very pleasant, very reassuring. He recommended that I have another test done on my eyes. I was a little anxious about that, but he put me at ease by saying, ??not to worry, I will call you immediately with the results. I often don't. I often let the office call in a few days, but because I detect that you're anxious, I'll mark it on your chart to give you a call right away, to ease any apprehension you might be having."

I was very appreciative of that. I thought that was very nice of him to do that. That just made a very big impression on me that he was willing to do that. So again, I haven't really known him long. I just met him the one time but again he was very personable, approachable and I enjoyed our interaction, and I definitely would recommend anybody coming to him if they have any eye issues. I believe he's very well educated from what I've seen on his website, and would feel very comfortable recommending him for any eye issues or checkups that you might have.

I have closed angle glaucoma. It's something that I've known about for the last 15 years. I've seen so many doctors in the last 15 years. Dr. Richardson was actually the first doctor who suggested Laser Iridotomy as a possible solution to my condition. So he gave me kind of a peace of mind, and it was something I've never heard about it. So then I talked to my general doctor, and I told her exactly what Dr. Richardson suggested she very, very highly recommended me Dr. Richardson. She said that she wouldn't trust her kids to any other doctor except Dr. Richardson. With hearing that, I had a peace of mind, and so I had the Laser Iridotomy done in both eyes. I'm very grateful.

He did the surgery on one eye, and made sure that everything was okay. I waited about a week. He accommodated my work schedule so that I could rest for a few days before going back to work. So and then I had the second surgery the following week. The follow up care with the doctor including the phone calls from the office to check on me went well!

Since then, I'm very, very grateful for Dr. Richardson. I have a peace of mind. Every time I come here, the staff is wonderful. They treat me very well anytime I have an emergency, which I had one one time. I had a very bad problem with my eye, over the weekend. I called Dr. Richardson and right away he told me what to do. That was on a Saturday! And then on Sunday, he called me at home again to follow up. To me that was something unusual. I have never seen anything like that! It was a good follow up!

So I really appreciate this office and I would recommend Dr. Richardson very very highly! Thank you.

My husband and I have been patients at this facility since the early '50s with Dr. Schiff, and we're very pleased that Dr. Schiff had the foresight to get Dr. Richardson on board. Dr. Richardson has operated on both of us for cataracts. We've had excellent results, the difference between night and day, from seeing things in a blurry fashion to things that are very clear. That's why we like this man.

We found that if there is a special problem, Dr. Richardson will readily refbrer us to a specialist for that particular problem, I find that very commendable. You find that the personnel in here are all very helpful and very amenable to us and very friendly. We find that they do give us a lot of support. Also, if there's an emergency, they will take us on, bring us in to check it out and give us the care that we need. Between the two of us, we find that this is the best place for eye care. It??s excellent!

We recommend Dr. Richardson and the San Gabriel Eye Associates to anyone that's looking for a doctor. Maybe they would do better by going to him instead of where they are going. Yes, I recommend it very highly.

I'm Opal, and I've been a patient with Dr. Richardson for 20 some years. I've always found the staff and Dr. Richardson to be very friendly, very professional, and very accommodating if you have to change your schedule or something. Dr. Richardson gave me two surgeries for cataracts and it opened up a whole new world for me. The surgery was very successful and everyone was friendly and helpful. I also have glaucoma and Dr. Richardson has been very faithful to keep me informed. I??ve always been nervous about that white coat syndrome, but I don??t feel that here. Everyone is great; they put you at ease and make you feel comfortable. I really appreciate the whole attitude of the staff and everything they do. So I would highly recommend Dr. Richardson and his staff to anyone. To put it shortly, I would say they are a cut above the rest.

We found this office because we were extremely dissatisfied with the doctor we were going to in town. It took a while, looking around to asking questions. A relative who had been a patient here referred us. Also I had seen an article that Dr. Richardson had written for one of the papers some time before and I remember thinking, ??Wow, that's the doctor I'd like to go to. It's too bad he's so far away from my hometown.?? I came to the San Gabriel Valley Eye Assocates initially for my general yearly checkup, but because of my age, I was beginning to get the age related macular problems and glaucoma problems and vision problems.

There couldn't be anybody nicer or more caring than Dr. Richardson who has been watching a problem of mine. He is able to answer all of my questions. He is very open. You feel very comfortable in that respect. I have never, ever not felt welcome in this office. The personnel changes from time to time, but I always feel like they remember us and we're well regarded patients. Unless he moves away, he's never going to get rid of us. We're very satisfied.

Hello, my name is Ron, and I've been coming to San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates since I was diagnosed with shingles in my right eye. I've been coming here since early November of 2009. The care that I've gotten here at San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates is far superior to any ophthalmology care that I've had in the Los Angeles area.

I have leukemia, and part of the chemotherapy drugs, zapped my optic nerves. So I suffer from low vision. I've gotten more information at this clinic about my low vision and how to cope with it than I've received from all the other ophthalmologists and neuro-ophthalmologists that I've encountered in the Los Angeles area.

So I highly recommend San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates. I highly recommend Dr. Kratz. I've not had the opportunity to meet Dr. Richardson yet, but I know that I will be meeting him at the end of the month, and I look forward to doing so. So far, I feel really comfortable at this clinic. They helped me deal with my low vision problems and, of course, with the post shingles neuralgia of the eye, and I can't recommend them highly enough!

My name is Bob Krause. I've been seeing Dr. Richardson for several months. In the beginning my left eye was 20/70 and my right eye was 20/60 and I couldn't really see much of anything. I've had cataract surgery on both eyes and today is really a cool day. This is the first day after my right eye. My vision is 20/20. My vision in my left eye is 20/25. That's perfect!

My advice to anyone who's interested is if you've got something wrong with your eyes, this is the guy to see. Dr. Richardson is the best! He graduated first in his class at USC, Phi Beta Kappa, and he got a scholarship to Harvard Medical School and graduated at the top of his class there. So, he's really a highly thought of guy and he's a super guy, too. He's as nice as person as you're going to meet, easy to get along with, and does terrific work. He's a real talent!

Dr. Richardson has the best equipment money can buy. I saw another ophthalmologist also and his equipment was dated in comparison. I'm here today and I see perfectly fine. I'm going to drive home today and that's cool too!

I was referred by my optometrist to the San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates. The staff is outstanding. The doctor assistants in particular have always been very impressive: professional, personable, and thorough. I like that everyone seems to be hustling and busy, especially since waiting is irritable at any doctor??s office. The billing office is very helpful also. The facilities are very nice and the location is convenient for me.

I am a glaucoma suspect, and I believe the doctors have been very proactive with my treatment. I am hopeful that I will be fortunate. Also, I appreciate that they have prepared me for what may happen in the future. I??m very confident with the recommendation of my long-time optometrist and with the service I??ve had these past few years that I am getting the best care for my condition.?

My husband and I have been patients of this office since about 1961 when our daughter was three years old. Dr. Schiff was here then. Since then, my husband, and I, and all three of our children have stayed with this practice. Dr. Richardson is now managing my husband's glaucoma and cataracts. Dr. Prichard prescribes our glasses, and has for many years, as well as for our children, who are now adults.We are very, very pleased with the care that we receive here. The doctors are courteous and extremely competent, and are able to answer all our questions and concerns about cataract surgery and about how my husband's glaucoma is doing. The staff here is very, very friendly, and pleasant, and also extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

And I am just so happy that we can count on them to take care of our eyes.

I just celebrated my 93rd birthday, and I've been a patient of Dr. Richardson for 10 years, and I have had excellent care. I have had glaucoma, and I am a diabetic, which a person has to be very careful of their eyesight. I'm doing really well, and my vision is normal, which I think is a great accomplishment to keep me going. All of Dr. Richardson's staff has been very kind and very good. Dr. Richardson is a fine doctor. He is very kind, and takes good care of his patients. I'm sure if it wasn't for Dr. Richardson, my vision would not be as good as it is today, and especially at my age. I still have a license to drive my car, which I wouldn't have got otherwise. I certainly recommend him to anyone that needs help with an eye problem.

I'm a Sparklets Water delivery man. I'm out in the sun all day. And unfortunately, one day, while working, I suddenly lost vision in my left eye. Never experiencing this happening to me before, I immediately went to Huntington Memorial Hospital, to the emergency room. They had quickly diagnosed me with cataracts in my left eye. I was promptly dispatched to a number of other doctors, who ultimately referred me to Dr. Richardson to have the cataract surgery performed.In the beginning, I was very concerned about what happened. But after meeting with several of the doctors, and especially after linking up with Dr. Richardson and his staff, I was promptly put to ease. I actually had gone through the surgery with Dr. Richardson, and within the next day, actually, the day of the surgery, having the lens replaced, I could then see 100 percent again.I know, for you out there who are probably concerned about this, like I was, I was extremely nervous and concerned, but I want to assure you, Dr. Richardson will be my exclusive eye doctor for the future. Thank you very much.

I'm a patient of Drs. Richardson, and Kratz, and Pritchard. I've seen all three doctors. Dr. Kratz I saw originally, and he saw something that was in my eye that shouldn't have been. He took the time and the care to contact my family doctor, and he ran some tests and come to find out I had a blockage in the artery to my heart. So in my opinion, Dr. Kratz saved my life!

I also have glaucoma and macular degeneration. They sent me to specialists at Doheny Eye Clinic, which has taken care of it also. I went to Doheny, and the doctor there called Dr. Richardson before I even left the parking lot and decided how to go from there.

Dr. Richardson had removed my cataracts. It was very painless. I couldn't believe when I took the patch off that I could see and how bright everything was.

They are so professional. Having Anna and Jonathan there just made it perfect for me. Dr. Richardson was so caring and loving and explained everything to me step by step.

Every time I come in here, I never get treated with anything but professionalism and caring. I would recommend any of these doctors to anybody. They are the most fantastic, the office people as well. I thank them for my life and for my eyesight.

When I had to have a cataract surgery, Doctor Richardson was there. He did all of the pre-op tests and reviews and always kept me fully informed as to where I was, what he was going to do, and what the goal of the results would be.

I can tell you from my personal experience over many years that the trust and the credibility and the care of this office always has been and is today outstanding, and being a senior citizen, I appreciate good vision. Without it, we're all in trouble. And in my periodic visits to check and maintain that my eyes are in good health.

During one of my pre-op visits, Doctor Richardson stressed that his concern, his biggest concern, was infection. He told me, "I don't care if it's three o'clock in the morning. If you even think you're having an eye problem, you call me. This is my home number. I want to know now so that we can take care of anything before it becomes a problem.

That's just an example of the type of care and concern that the doctors and the staff have for all of the patients here. I will continue to come to this office because I know that I can trust everyone here. Thank you.

When I had to have a cataract surgery, Doctor Richardson was there. He did all of the pre-op tests and reviews and always kept me fully informed as to where I was, what he was going to do, and what the goal of the results would be.

I can tell you from my personal experience over many years that the trust and the credibility and the care of this office always has been and is today outstanding, and being a senior citizen, I appreciate good vision. Without it, we're all in trouble. And in my periodic visits to check and maintain that my eyes are in good health.

During one of my pre-op visits, Doctor Richardson stressed that his concern, his biggest concern, was infection. He told me, "I don't care if it's three o'clock in the morning. If you even think you're having an eye problem, you call me. This is my home number. I want to know now so that we can take care of anything before it becomes a problem.

That's just an example of the type of care and concern that the doctors and the staff have for all of the patients here. I will continue to come to this office because I know that I can trust everyone here. Thank you.

I first became a patient of Dr. Richardson's about two years ago. I am probably one of the toughest people on doctors there can be. I know if I like a doctor. I will know right away if I don't like him, and I won't be around very long. I think he is probably one of the nicest and best doctors I have ever been referred to. One of my problems, at first, was I wasn't sure if he was old enough to be a doctor. He looked so young. He is a very young looking man, but he isn't.

His relationship with his patients is very, very, very good. And as far as the surgery he did on my eye, I had cataract surgery. It was so easy that I couldn't believe that I had it done. It was just the simplest, easiest, painless operation I've ever had.

Everybody in his office is very nice to get along with, very nice to deal with. He has a very nice looking staff, too, if I may say. I just enjoy coming to his office. And I have referred a lot of patients to him. And hopefully they feel the same I do. I don't know why they wouldn't.

Other than that, that is probably all I can tell you about him. All I can say is if I was going to refer any of my doctors, which I have been to a lot in the last few years, he is probably number one on the list.

I've been coming to this office for over 40 years. We used to live in Monterey Park where I raised my family and all of us would come here.

We've been very happy with our service here. The staff has been outstanding. Doctors - couldn't ask for anything better! We think so much of this office that in 1977, we moved from Monterey Park to Orange County, and we STILL come here for all of our eye checkups.

We've watched the evolution of the office. Dr. Richardson's service is just excellent! I never felt rushed I feel like a member of the family. I walk in, I'm always greeted, taken care of professionally, and treated just like part of the family. I'm very happy with the service.

The cataract CD I received prior to surgery was very informative. It explained everything! I thought that whoever prepared the CD, which was Dr. Richardson, knew what they were doing, because it was very informative. I had a great idea as to what was going to happen and why. Great idea!

I would highly recommend this office to anyone!

I've been coming to the San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates for about almost five years now. I've been seeing Dr. Richardson's associate, Dr. Kratz.

He is very professional, very, very thorough. I've been very impressed with how thorough he is. He seems to look at every possibility and has great concern for his patients, which is really good.

If I had to recommend an eye doctor to anybody, I would definitely recommend the doctors of the San Gabriel Valley Eye Associates.

I'm a fairly new patient of Doctor Richardson's. My association began through my mother-in-law, who is 91 years old, and has been seeing the doctor for some time, and has had successful surgery. That encouraged me to try and see the doctor, since I hadn't been to an eye doctor in some time.

I've been very pleased with the quality of service and with the attention to detail that the doctor and his staff are focused on. So far, we're not at a stage where we need any major surgery to be done, but I feel very reassured that when it's time, they will find it, and I'll be ready to go when I need to have the kind of surgery that will keep my vision at its peak.

I wish anyone of you who are interested in starting a relationship with Doctor Richardson, to please do so.

Dr. Richardson has done an excellent job taking care of my eyes!

My problem has been a few things. Glaucoma, for one, and he's been on the cutting edge of treatment. Aside from the staff, which I think is the best staff of any of the doctors I've been to in many years, he, himself, has shown a remarkable interest in my own welfare.

He's very personable and easy to talk with. He volunteers information that he thinks is pertinent to me in the treatment of my eyes and he follows through with it.

I greatly appreciate Doctor Richardson and his staff, very much. I recommend him highly to anyone and I have to many people already!

When entering the office it's like you're one of the family!

The receptionist greets you with a "Good morning. How are you?" They take you in, check your vision, and dilate your eyes so they can assess the back of your eye better. They even have a TV you can watch while you're dilating because your eyes get a little blurry when you??re dilating.

They never keep you real long. Doctor Richardson usually has a lot of patients but he usually sees me on time. He answers my questions. He is never in a hurry. I have been to doctors where they have one leg out the door. He is not like that at all.

He explains thoroughly and he makes sure that you understand. He is always smiling and he answers your questions so you can understand them. He doesn't use these big words that you don't understand.

He is very thorough. He makes you feel very welcome and he always gives you samples to try out if available in case it doesn't work, you don't spend $$ to find out it doesn't work. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Richardson is a wonderful ophthalmologist!

He along with his staff and associates care for their patients.

He provides extremely thorough exams and testing with the latest technology.

He will always take the time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. You will, more often than not, leave his office more knowledgable about your eyes.

He is a doctor you should meet especially if you are having trouble with your vision.

Dr. Richardson did a wonderful job on my eye!

I was referred for high eye pressure in my eye. At first I neglected care, but then I decided to go see my mother's ophthalmologist, Dr. Richardson.

I had the Argon Laser Trabeculectomy procedure to lower my high eye pressure (for glaucoma) and I had a toric intraocular lens implanted (for my cataract and astigmatism). Both procedures were painless and relatively quick.

My optometrist was really impressed with the results after my surgery. "This guy's good!" he said, referring to Dr. Richardson of course! All testimony to Dr. Richardson's skill and education, and I recommend him to anybody. Come here!

I've learned a lot about my eyes since coming to see Dr. Richardson. I was satisfied, and I'm sure you will be. He's professional. He's got the steadiest hands I've ever seen in a human, and when he touches your eye, it's unbelievable.

He's a gifted surgeon, and I recommend you come to see Dr. Richardson!

My optometrist had suggested I may have some issue with glaucoma. I was recommended to see Dr. Richardson. At first I was a little apprehensive. I thought, "Glaucoma? Am I going to go blind!?" Dr. Richardson has been a very pleasant ophthalmologist. We went through a battery of tests. Everyone at the office was very pleasant, and everything went well. I've been coming to his office for, one year now, and the follow up is excellent! I will keep coming back. My wife also intends to come here. I think this is a great place to come, and I would recommend anyone come to see Dr. David Richardson.

The professionalism of the entire office is outstanding and all questions were answered. Dr. Richardson and Dr. Pritchard seem eminently qualified at at their profession and both are compassionate.

All the instructions were given to us in writing so we knew when and what to do and I think this is one of the most valuable tools Dr. Richardson and his staff use.
