My husband, who passed from pancreatic cancer 3+ years ago, was asked by his PCP if he had been informed by the oncologist, Dr. Priest, that he had an infection; my husband responded "no." The "infection" turned out to be the return of my husband's cancer, leading to his demise. Dr. Priest dropped the ball. Initially, my husband WAS diagnosed early enough, which is rare for this type of cancer, underwent the Whipple procedure, & given a 99.9% chance of recovery, w/chemo & radiation. Shameful.

Dr. Priest is the best of the best and possesses all the characteristics anyone would hope to have in a doctor. He is not just a great doctor, but his demeanor and bedside manner gives me immediate confidence, trust, and comfort. I only wish all my doctors were just like him!
