Huggins Hospital Welcomes Brent Richardson, MD, to Wolfeboro General Surgery

Huggins Hospital would like to welcome Brent A. Richardson, MD. Dr. Richardson joins William Barton, MD, FACS, in the Wolfeboro General Surgery office located in the hospital’s Medical Arts building.

Everything fell into place for Dr. Richardson, a native of Denver who grew up in Texas, during his first few trips to New Hampshire. After never traveling to the East Coast his entire life, he made two trips to New Hampshire in a span of about six months and was sold on the location and position at Huggins Hospital.

“It was everything I was looking for,” Dr. Richardson said. “It’s a beautiful place with wonderful people. The administration and the people here have been so welcoming.”

His first trip was for his interview at the hospital last winter. His second trip to New Hampshire was for a friend’s wedding at Castle in the Clouds, just miles away from the hospital, this summer.

During their visit, Dr. Richardson and his wife, Marissa, spent some time on Lake Winnipesaukee and enjoyed all the outdoor activities our area has to offer. They were convinced this was the right place to be.

He was valedictorian at his high school in Gladewater, Texas, and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Microbiology and Biochemistry from Texas State University, where he was a member of the honor society all four years. Dr. Richardson received his Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Texas.

Dr. Richardson has special interest in vascular surgery, abnormal connections in blood vessels, catheter placement and vascular access. He has also served on several medical missions to countries all over the world.

Dr. Richardson looks forward to working with Drs. Barton and Jones and serving his new community.

“What really sealed the deal for me was having (Dr. Barton) and (Dr. Jones) as my partners and realizing I have some great support,” Dr. Richardson said. “It was the combination of great hospital, great location and great partners.”

He now lives in Wolfeboro with his wife and one of the things on his to-do list is to buy a sailboat to put on the lake.

When not working at the hospital, Dr. Richardson enjoys numerous outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, sailing and scuba diving. Some of his personal interests are sustainable/minimalistic living and environmental protection.
