In 1997 I worked at Flinders University of South Australia as an Honorary Clinical Lecturer. In 1999 I was appointed as Consultant Surgeon at MEHT.

Mr Richardson is, I think, aware of the respect I have for him as a Surgeon and as a person after two surgical procedures in the last 8 months. My comments here are only meant for those yet to face surgery under his hands and his team. You could not be in better care than under this special person who chose Surgery as his work. Matt.
Mr Richardson hasbeen there for me over a considerable length of time. He has alwaysmade himself available to me as an outpatient following several periods of hospitalisation. He is an extremely warm and friendly person and goes to great lengths to explain in simple terms his diagnosis and recommended treatments. One cannot fail to have complete faith in him, confident that he really cares. I consider him to be one in amillionand am so thankful that he is my consultant. He is truly fantastic, with a great team to back him up. Thank you Nigel Richardson.
Mr Richardson made me feel very at ease. Listened to my fears and made me feel very confident about my op. Found him to be a very caring and warm.
I was treated by Mr Richardson as an inpatient and visited his outpatients clinic to get the results of my scan. Both my wife and I found that he was an excellent listener and explained my results in a way that was very easy for us to understand. He fully answered all of our questions in the simplest way and was very understanding. We both felt totally at ease and I would say that he is the best consultant that I have been treated by.
