Meet Dr. James Richardson

“Since I came to Columbia, TN in 1988, there has been a tremendous transition in sugrical technique in my brief career. Hardly anything I do now is done the way I was trained to originally do it many years ago, which is what makes a surgical career so interesting. It’s constant learning. I try to treat my patients the way I would want myself and my family to be treated. I take my time to get to know my patients and what theyir problems are.Coming from a family of surgeons, I feel like I am hardwired to be a surgeon. I hold myself to a standard that I think my father would expect of me.” – Dr. James Richardson
