Finding a doctor in DMV is not easy. I went to the web to find what kind of doctor I was looking for. The reviews did not lie. An easy style with care and understanding and gentle questions that created a dialogue rather than a one sided lecture. Highly highly recommend Dr. Prinz.

I am so pleased with Dr. Prinz because of several reasons. First off he is kind, gentle, honest and trustworthy. I like his no nonsense approach, he is in my experience a very knowledgeable and skilled physician. He listens to what the patient has to say and is very respectful. I have full confidence in his diagnosis and medication management. His recommendation are excellent. I have been fortunate with his referral. First time in 44 years in States I have met one as excellent as such.

I have been a patient of Dr. Prinz for nearly 14 years. I have lived in Hyattsville MD for the last 6 years and still continue to go to VA for my exams. I completely trust Dr. Prinz.

Dr. Prinz has taken excellent care of both my parents for many years. I live out of state but on a recent visit to my mother's home, I experienced unusual abdominal pains. Dr. Prinz kindly made room in his schedule to see me right away after my mother called the office to request it (even though *I* was not a patient) and fortunately diagnosed with likely appendicitis, sending me to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy just in time to avert disaster. I will always be grateful.

I highly recommend Dr. Prinz. He always greets you in his office for a consultation before an exam. Afterwards, if there are options for your treatment, he explains them to you and allows your input to determine which one to try first. He treats you with empathy and dignity, and never leaves you with the impression that he is rushing through your appointment.

He sits down with you to talk before the exam. He does the vital signs, runs the tests, completes the exam- then sits down with you again to discuss your concerns. He is always on time. He calls you for follow-up, if your issue requires it.

Listened to my concerns, explained the problems in detail, and was truly interested. This is only a small portion of what I could enter.
