Dr. Richmond’s clinical specialties focus on a broad range of medical aspects of the Otolaryngology practice, with an emphasis on evaluating and managing auditory symptoms including hearing loss, tinnitus (ear sounds), ear pain and drainage and disorders of postural control (vertigo, dizziness and imbalance).


Procedural activities in the head and neck area include flexible endoscopy of the upper aerodigestive tract, ear debridement (cerumen impaction, canal infection), minor procedures in the outpatient setting (oral biopsy, epistaxis control) and repositioning maneuvers for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
