About Dr. Rich

Philosophy of care

I wish to help patients understand their condition, treatment options, and to guide them through their decision process and treatment.
 

Why I entered medicine

I started working in a hospital at age 16. I loved math and science and became a chemical engineer, but ultimately I found personal fulfillment in combining engineering's problem solving with caring for patients.
 

Personal interests

I enjoy cycling, water sports and woodworking.
