I am a RN. Dr. Price is excellent, thorough and great doctor. I read a complaint that he reads into the computer. That is good for the patient as you get a full printed report at the end. Computers are the future. I will highly recommend him to all friends/family.

I needed a nerve conduction test on my arms/hands, and was nervous because the one I had years ago was painful. Dr. Price really made an effort to make the procedure as comfortable as possible, and I found him easy to talk to and very knowledgeable.

His approach to all my symptoms was clear and the fact that we received a printed copy of our visit notes. We feel fortunate to be his patient.

Dr. Price heard my concerns & came up with a plan to help me! I am so thankful to be seen by such a caring professional. Waited 3 months for an appointment. Dr. Price is an exemplary provider. Also, Dr. Price's assistant who took my vitals was VERY compassionate. 3 months seems to be the norm for specialty providers.

Dr. Price is so rude and condescending. After 5 visits he still asks me "Why are you here?" He dictates in front of me, throws papers, loses paperwork then makes excuses. He pretty much told me Stanford and my specialists in San Francisco were doing it wrong. I had a breakout from a hormone imbalance and he said man you have herpes. He spent 20 minutes looking for records and wants my Stanford Dr to do meds because he doesn't want to be liable. This man shouldn't be in practice at all.

Rude and condescending. He called me a liar and refused to fill out a DMV clearance because he said he needed my medical records and then just told me he didn't want to do it and I was free to leave. Then went and told the manager to not allow people to bring in DMV forms because the $25 charge to fill it out doesn't go to him and he said "I'm not doing them anymore the money doesn't go to me I'm not going to work for free"Oh and his only recommendation for anything ever is to smoke pot.

On my first visit he was very rude and made comments that were not appropriate. The following visit he did an electro Myla gram. He was very rough and didn't seem to care. He told me what he found and when I asked him if he could explain it to me he said "look it up on the internet" If he doesn't like what he does, quit, don't make people suffer.

What a horrible experience! Dr Price is rude and would rather talk to himself and computer instead of listen or even look at the patient. He told me that he wanted to get up and leave when I started to get upset because after waiting 6 months to finally get an EEG and an appointment with him he had no answers! So I got up and left still not knowing what's going on inside me. I feel hopeless and misunderstood which brings on depression. Thanks Dr Price for nothing but a waste of my time!

This was my first (and only) appointment with him. He was very short, almost to the point of being rude. Never hardly even made eye contact with me while he typed into the computer. Showed little concern for or interest in me. Extremely disappointing!
