I was taken to Deer Valley Honor health due to a bleeding nose that wouldnt quit. Was then transferred to Honor Health Shea Medical and told Dr Pryor would be coming to see me. Finally, he appeared after several hours to tell me that he looked at my meds and chart and said due to the Eliquis blood thinner i was on, it wasnt an ENT problem but a cardiology problem. He said to leave in the rhino rocket that was put in at Deer Valley to book an appt to have it removed. This morning before appt which was supposed to be tomorrow his office called to say they dont take VA insurance

Both my wife and I have had appointments with Dr. Pryor. We have been very pleased with the way he has interacted with us, and have been very confident about the quality of his diagnosis. We give him five stars. However it is very difficult to set an appointment with Dr. Pryor. His office staff does not return calls. I have been trying to set up an appointment for four days. No one answers the phones.

From start to finish I couldn't be happier with Dr. Pryor and his staff! You cannot see the scar from the surgery! Bedside manner is excellent and Dr. Pryor made me feel comfortable prior to the surgery. Top notch!!

I had seen Dr Pryor for an initial consultation. We discussed a couple solutions to my problem. I admittedly went to another Dr for a second opinion. The Dr not only agreed with Dr Pryor, he actually suggested Dr Pryor to do the surgery. Im very happy how everything turned out.

Dr. Pryor was very patient and took his time with me to discuss several nose related issues, and solutions. Overall I couldn’t be happier. Im able to breathe better, and my wife says I don’t snore as much

Dr Pryor and Jocelyn are the best ever!!! I was suffering with sinus disease and chronic headaches. Dr Pryor was always very kind, gentle and always throughly explained everything to me; I never felt rushed by him or his staff. When ever I had questions or concerns Jocelyn was always there to help me too. I Have gone to other ENT doctors in the area and they don't compare to the care and treatment I received with Dr Pryor, Jocelyn and Valley ENT Top notch !!!

After waiting a month for an emergency ear tube surgery for our one and a half year old daughter who had been unable to combat a consist two month long ear infection and had been on every antibiotic possible (none of which worked on her), the office staff called us at 6:30 the night before her surgery to tell us that we were going to own another $300 prior to her surgery the next morning. I had already schedule payments with the facility for equal payments and had everything handled and ready to

Dr. Pryor is the best! I’ve been a patient of his for 7 years and have never had anything but a 100% positive experience. From thyroid surgery to Botox, he is incredibly skilled, professional and gets fantastic results. My other doctors rave about him and his personality is absolutely delightful. The office staff are easy to coordinate with and efficient.
