I’m so grateful for the health I enjoy today. I’ll never forget my first visit there; I could barely make it up the steps from knee pain and total exhaustion. The depression, anxiety and foggy brain was terrible. I’m grateful for my wonderful life today. Thank you for all your help and hope.

I never knew how effective a real Doctor-Patient relationship could be until working with Dr. Richey. She engaged me in my own healing process from the beginning, and helped me take responsibility for my recovery from Lyme, Bartonella and Biotoxin Illness. Then, she helped me maintain my good health.

If you want to get better from Lyme disease with lots of co-infections, then I suggest that you see Dr. Richey! Do not waste your money elsewhere! She and her family have Lyme disease, too, and she has a vested interested in keeping up-to-date on Lyme treatments. She knows what we are going through because she has gone through the same thing. She will understand you!

I just know that God lead me to see Dr. Richey! Not only does she know exactly what she is doing, but she also keeps costs really low. All other Lyme doctors that I have seen charge a fortune, but not Dr. Richey! She takes lots of time with me and answers all of my questions. She is even available by email nearly 24/7 even on weekends or on vacation! I highly recommend Dr. Richey because she is caring and dedicated to her patients.

Dr. Richey is extremely intelligent and has vast knowledgeable about Lyme, co-infections, and other factors. She recognized Biotoxin illness in my daughter who has Lyme which turned out to be our home. We have moved and my daughter is now steadily gaining weight thankfully back to her old self, when she was a mere 110 lbs for so years. I appreciate greatly the compassionate and caring person Dr. Richey is, and how hard she works to help my daughter and others.

Dr. Richey did what multiple other traditional doctors did not do. She took my daughter's Lyme disease symptoms seriously and carefully administered proper treatment to return my daughter to good health. I am very thankful for Dr. Richey's care and dedication to helping her patients regain not only their health but their former lives.

Through the grace of God, I found Dr. Richey. I was desperate and so sick when I found her that I was almost sobbing. I called and left a message for an appointment, and she immediately called me back. She even took time out of her vacation to see me and stayed in touch throughout her vacation! Who does that? I'm so sick of the quality of healthcare today. Doctors zip in and out of your examining room and you're luck if you get a few questions answered! Dr. Richey spent two hours explaining what was going on with my body. She combined antibiotics and natural supplements (which I love!) and within ONE week I felt so much better and was resuming a few activities. I don't know where I'd be without Dr. Richey.

Thank you for all you do. I would not be on a path to feeling better and treating Chronic Lyme if it wasn't for you. No one else could help me, but you even though you are 4hrs away from me - it is worth the trip! I thank God I found you. And my family send their thanks as well. They are finally getting their mom and wife back after being very sick for 3 years and no one else to help me until I found you! We are in Disney world now, and I am having such a great time and doing things I wasnt able to do the last 3 years. THANK YOU DR VALERIE RICHEY!

After years of seeing other Lyme “experts”, Dr. Richey proves to be the real expert. I have been to several doctors in Florida, California, Arizona, Tennessee and Ohio. I had been diagnosed and treated for Lyme disease but was still very very sick. Dr. Richey recognized and diagnosed important co-infections that were wreaking havoc with my health and preventing recovery. Other doctors, including the Lyme experts, failed to even consider these vital factors. Of all the doctors I’ve met, Dr. Richey has the most comprehensive understanding of not only Lyme disease but also the co-infections that come with it. Her treatment approach is cutting edge in line with the latest in medical findings in international Lyme research. Patience with the disease and recovery from it can be difficult, but Dr. Richey’s talents are well proven when following her course of treatment over time compared to other Lyme “experts”. I am very grateful to have found her.
