Dr. Prisco is the best doctor I have ever met. He doesn't just keep his eyes on a computer screen like most doctors due now. He examines, listens carefully to the patients complaints. He examines you to ascertain if there are any relative illness. He doesn't just give you a prescription and tell you come back in three months. He follows your progress and will see you again as soon as possible if you condition does not improve. He makes himself available to the patient and gives of his time. I cannot emphasize enough how caring Doctor Prisco. I say again he is the best medical doctor I have ever met.

I have been a patient of Dr. Prisco's since I first became sick in 1997. I had blood clots in my lungs, outside the main vein into my heart and both arteries of my heart. The clots in my lungs eventually caused me to have Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension. Since 1997 Dr. Prisco has saved my life on three different occasions. His medical knowledge and dedication are the reasons i am alive today.
