James Richter, M.D., FACG, graduated from Furman University where he was an All-American placekicker. After a brief stint with the NFL (San Francisco 49ers and Greenbay Packers), he went on to work in business finance for three years before following his passion of becoming a physician. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of South Carolina School of Medicine where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society.
He then went on to the University of Virginia for his internal medicine residency. There he had the opportunity to serve as chief resident, but rather elected to stay at UVA for his gastroenterology and hepatology fellowship. He returned home to the Midlands where he joined the Consultants in Gastroenterology practice in 2011.
Dr. Richter is currently the president of Consultants in Gastroenterology and has served on National Committees for the American College of Gastroenterology and is a member of the American Gastroenterology Association and the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy.
Dr. Richter feels blessed to have the opportunity to come home to the Midlands to raise his two children and serve the community where both he and his wife grew up. “It is truly a privilege to come to work every day and help take care of the people in our community. For me there is no greater honor.”
