About Christine P. Richards:

Christine P. Richards, MD, FACOG, combines her compassionate approach to gynecology with a desire to empower women through the care she offers at Capital Women’s Care in Fulton, Maryland. Fully licensed in her field, Dr. Richards shares her extensive knowledge of gynecology and years of experience in feminine health to care for women in the Greater Baltimore area.

After earning her bachelor’s degree in biology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Dr. Richards stayed to get her doctorate of medicine at world-renowned McMaster University School of Medicine. She then completed a general comprehensive internship at Toronto Western Hospital, associated with the University of Toronto. She returned to McMaster University to complete a residency in obstetrics and gynecology in 1990.

In 1991, Dr. Richards opened her own clinic in Hamilton. While in practice there, she held the position of associate professor and taught residents and interns. After practicing there for three years, she moved with her family to Columbia, Maryland.

From 1994 until October 2000, Dr. Richards served her new community as part of Patuxent Medical Group, a multispecialty group of medical providers across Howard County, Maryland.

In 2000, Dr. Richards formed a partnership with Dr. Marvin Davis and started Contemporary Health for Women, an integrated medical practice committed to wellness and preventive health for women in all stages of life. In January 2004, Contemporary Health for Women merged with Capital Women's Care.

Dr. Richards is board-certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She also holds a fellowship at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada — an achievement similar in Canada to board certification in the United States.

Annual Well Woman Exam

I saw Dr. Richards for the first time in May 2020 and was diagnosed with Endometrial Carcinoma. Getting THAT appointment was a task in and of itself, even before COVID-19 presented itself. I was not pleased with the appointment setting system then and still not pleased with it. It has NEVER been the personnel, but the system for booking appointments, from my perspective. Dr. Richards was absolutely there, in the moment, with me and I felt comfortable talking about things that I would not normally share. I had time to ask questions and she spent the time to answer them. Thank you.

Dr. Richards always takes the time to ask/answer questions and provide insight on what to expect, including as things come up as we get older. She is a wonderful doctor who really cares about her patients.

New Patient Visit

My physician did a really good job about ensuring that I was fully informed and comfortable throughout the entire experience. I really appreciated her taking the time to hear my concerns and then support my decision with my next steps. My only complaint from my experience was with a particular receptionist, I think her name was Emily. I was uncomfortable with the way that she spoke to her fellow colleagues, in particular a Black receptionist (her name is slipping my mind, however she was so kind). In addition, while I was leaving Emily asked which physician that I visited today, I did not hear her the first time she asked because I thought she was addressing another patient. She then said, "fine I guess I will look at your chart then." When she said this, it was done in a way that made me feel like I was an inconvenience to her. I then turned back around and asked if she meant to ask me the question and I responded with the name of my physician. Overall it caught me off guard and I was uncomfortable because I wanted to speak up and say something.

Dr. Richards was so kind. I was seeing her to discuss fertility related issues and I was so nervous and anxious the entire time leading up to the appointment. She was so kind and patient that I felt much calmer after meeting with her. She was also so thorough and informative. I'm so happy to have had this appointment and would definitely recommend her to anyone else.
