    Dr. Price answers questions clearly and is very familiar with recent studies, so if your research about your condition leads to a difference in expected treatment, he’ll be able to answer why they are different. During my visits, he came very prepared. He seems to remember previous conversations completely. He is conservative in his approach, he won’t recommend a procedure unless it is needed, and he stresses taking care of yourself with appropriate diet and exercise. My condition isn’t severe, and my interactions follow a maintenance program. But I know another patient in his care with a challenging issue and he devotes considerable time, as needed, to that patient. In short, Dr. Price is an excellent, professional doctor who takes his patient’s health as his priority.

    I have had totally positive experiences and treatment from Dr. Price. He put in a total of 5 stents during two different sessions (2 weeks apart). The first session was an emergency done at Stanford, based upon MI NSTEMI., He treats difficult PCI's, including an LAD-D2 bifurcation. for me. I was told by his colleague that he "saved you from by-pass.." Thank you, Dr. Price.

    I've been seeing Dr. Price for 1-1/2 years following my initial cardiac crisis in 2014. I've had at least 24 office visits during that time. He has also performed several angiograms on me -- all were very successful. He also provided pre- and post-surgical care for me care for my recent open heart surgery. He listens very well and carefully monitors my health. He discusses treatment options and explains his recommendations. He is one of the best doctors I've ever had.
