I didn't get a chance to meet Dr. Prichard since I was put on hold for 15 minutes the first time and I hung up. This morning i tried again and was on hold for 10 minutes. Are they that busy that no one could take my info? I tried getting an appt through the website they mention and that didn't work either. Will find a doctor elsewhere.

Dr. Prichard is a highly-competent physician. He is professional, knowledgable, caring, flexible and he has exceptional listening skills. He is concerned about how you feel and provides fact-based options for your care. I started on allergy shots 5 years ago and never had a reaction or any further trouble with my sinus infections. This is clearly due to the perfect formula calculations. Bravo and thank you Dr. Prichard.

Dr Pritchard is great & very experienced. Office staff is unfortunately rude when making appointments & checking patients in. We recently scheduled a surgery & spent 2 hours going over the procedure & cost (approx $1600). Two hours after leaving the office, we receive a call from Methodist hosp that we needed to go there that day to fill out forms & give blood. No one from Dr office told us about this. When we arrived at Methodist Hospital, they told us we would owe another $5k in charges just to use the facility (and we have great insurance—BCBS PPO w/$1500 deductible). Dr Pritchard had to get involved & tell his staff to ‘choose’ a different surgery center. His staff never gave us an option & was so obscure about total process—it made us feel uncomfortable. We worked it out finally w/different surgery center (way less than half of Methodist). Problem was staff still made mistakes & gave incorrect ins to new place. Dr Pritchard is great but be weary of staff and ask questions.

Best care, easiest surgery, and he always made me feel comfortable and safe. Dr. Prichard sat with me and answered all my questions on numerous visits before my procedure. He is really one of the best doctors I have ever had!

Dr. Prichard is very professional and thorough during every appointment. He answered my list of 25+ questions before surgery without making me feel rushed. Being in the medical field, I value his expertise and bedside manner. I was running 9 miles a month out of surgery and get almost daily comments how you can hardly tell I had surgery because the scar is so minimal. Pretty impressive considering it was a 5 inch incision due to the size of my thyroid.
