OU Physicians Patient Mar 6, 2019

Love Dr Richardson but her medical assistant that took me to the room initially seemed to overstep her knowledge. I was concerned about abdominal pain I wa having and she blew it off as muscle pain from working out at the gym. Even when I kept saying that it felt kike it did before the cancer diagnosis. Was. Dry disappointed that she felt like she knew more than my doctor Dr Richardson listened to my concerns,did the exam and did find something to be concerned about. Did a biopsy and told me when I could expect the results. Really out my kind at ease

OU Physicians Patient Feb 27, 2019

Dr. Richardson is wonderful! I hope OU can keep her, as I am positive there are clinics elsewhere that would love to have her. She is very gifted as a physician and surgeon but never too lofty to answer questions or have a conversation. I trust her completely.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 20, 2019

I have nothing about her I would like to improve.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 15, 2019

The oncologist gynocologist was inconsiderate, uncaring and made me feel nothing was wrong. The wait was over an hour for the 2nd appointment. I ended up seeing a student doctor. She wasn't as rude. I will never return or recommend anyone I know to your institute. I was very disappointed with my care.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 13, 2019

She was very kind and most .beliebable

OU Physicians Patient Feb 13, 2019

She spoke from her research-clinical background which was mostly over my head. I tried asking basic questions which frustrated her as she repeated what she previously explained to me. I had no background knowledge of clinical trials so she had to be very practical with me.

OU Physicians Patient Feb 1, 2019

Dr Richardson is a very caring and knowledgeable Doctor I would most definitely recommend her

OU Physicians Patient Dec 19, 2018

there does seem to be a disconnect between various personnel in infusion, to the gyn/onc office...

OU Physicians Patient Nov 28, 2018

This is the first time I have seen the Provider. I feel very confident about her skill and qualifications.

OU Physicians Patient Oct 17, 2018

I probably would not recommend that particular Dr. but i would recommend all of the other staff.

Dr. Debra Richardson is excellent. I am so lucky to have her as my doctor during this difficult time of diagnosis and treatment and follow up care for the future.

All of this is very helpful in forging ahead, which one must do. My family and I appreciate her very much.
