Dr. Pringle treated me or a tightness in my chest and discovered that I had an artery that was almost fully blocked. He installed a stent which was very successful. His actions helped me avoid a heart attack for which I am very grateful! He tells it like it is and is very friendly.

When my wife Laura was suffering from A-fib Dr pringle ran all needed tests, had my wife wear a heart monitor, finished testing to confirm A-fib and referred her to Dr. Brett Baker.. Dr. Pringle really cares, gives it to you straight (Good or Bad). When it comes to our heart Dr. Pringle is our man!

Dr. Pringle...is very professional and straight to the point. He doesn't sugar coat it...if you need a hug, see DR. Phil. Whatever he tells you is in your best interest....very thorough, but never runs unnecessary testing. If my oldest brother had been seeing DR.P...he'd probably still be alive. I had aortic aneurism and a bad valve, I should have probably croaked already....he Dr. Magera, Dr. Bickerstaff and my surgeon Dr. James Morris who was at Roper...are my guardian angels.

I have seen Dr. Pringle on several occasions to have stress tests done and he's a wonderful Doctor. I'm retired from EMS and several of my former coworkers also see him. When you work in the medical field that says a lot. Easy to get appts. Great bedside manner and humor.

I would not recommend this practice to my worst enemy. The Dr and staff are very rude. Worst experience ever.
