Dr. Prica was my primary doctor and for my entire family! He helped me get on proper medication for anxiety and depression when I was in high school. I lead a successful and productive life free of drug and alcohol addiction thanks to this man. He knew I would have a genetic predisposition and helped me have a normal life free of the many health issues that plagued my older relatives, namely my father and aunt. I wish I still lived in the area and could go to him. I feel we are all so disconnected now and the future of medicine will not be so personal or interconnected in terms of family history.

All of my visits go well. Dr. Prica has been my primary for over 32 years. He has praised me and scolded me, but I would not trade him for anyone else. He has helped me things above and beyond what was necessary. I am going to freak out when he retires, but I am sure that will be for many years. Highly recommend Dr. Prica and any of his associates at Columbia Family Medical Group.

Muscle torn from my shoulder. Took Dr Prica a year to diagnose that I needed X-rays. Does not listen when you tell him what is wrong. This was only the most egregious misdiagnosis not the only one.

I feel as though I am well taken care of by this doctor and his office staff. Even though he has a busy practice he takes the time to listen and to have a personal touch.
