Richard has worked in healthcare since 2008, and previously worked in a hospital acute care setting, including in an emergency room, intensive care unit, and medical-surgery unit.

Richard became an advanced practitioner so he could care for patients in a higher scope of practice. “As an advanced practitioner, I have always felt I could more successfully contribute to a patient’s health and quality of life,” he explains.

During his education, Richard was introduced to the vascular specialty and enjoyed the experience of helping patients with vascular disorders. “At that point, I knew I wanted to work in this area and take care of this patient population. I find it both challenging and fulfilling.”

In his practice Richard is dedicated to providing patient-centered care that offers trust, education, and guidance to meet established patient healthcare goals. “I believe an informed patient can ultimately make the correct decision that improves quality of life,” he explains. “The patient must have a voice regarding their healthcare.”

Richard says that what he likes the most about his profession is making a patient’s quality of life better through shared decision-making and meeting set goals. “When you can make patients feel better psychologically and physically, their motivation to live healthier lives increases.”

In his spare time Richard enjoys being with family and friends and doing activities such as traveling, hiking, camping, or just simple things like taking his dog for a walk. He also enjoys projects like landscaping his yard and building things around the house.
