Dr. Fred Richardson makes house calls to some of Chicago's most dangerous neighborhoods.

We joined Dr Richardson, an Englewood native, on exams in his office and on a house call to a 96-year-old woman on the West Side. And if seeing patients six days a week and being on call 24/7 isn't enough, Dr. Richardson makes it his business to mentor African American medical students, helping guide them through the difficult parts of becoming a doctor.
