Meet Dr. Richmond
Local doctor named to ‘Best Doctors in America’ list - Continued
Continued from front page - Best Doctors has earned a sterling reputation for reliable,
impartial results by remaining totally independent. Doctors cannot pay to be included in the
Best Doctors database, nor are they paid to provide their input. The List is a product of
validated peer review, in which doctors who excel in their specialties are selected by their
peers in the profession.

Over the past 20 years, Best Doctors has earned global acclaim for its remarkable database of
physicians, regarded as the world’s premier effort to create a validated, peer-reviewed
database of excellence in medicine. The Best Doctors methodology is rigorously impartial and
strictly independent; only those doctors recognized as the top 3-5% of their respective
specialty earn the honor of being named one of the Best Doctors in America. The experts who
are a part of the Best Doctors in America database provide the most advanced medical
expertise and knowledge to patients with serious conditions – often saving lives in the process
by finding the right diagnosis and right treatment.

“I was honored when I found out about the award,” says Richmond, “I actually found out
through a family member that saw the listing in the Birmingham News. Once I found out that
for this award you must be nominated by other physicians, then anonymously reviewed for
your quality of care by LOTS of physicians who are currently top doctors, and finally
recognized if you meet the standard of those already recognized as the “Best Doctors”. So this
award means a lot to me.”
