highest recommendation for Dr. Priego
I love Dr. Priego. I've been seeing him for 12 years in both Bethesda & Germantown. Both offices have professional staff & are very efficient. Dr. Priego treated me through 2 pregnancies. I feel like I'm going to visit my dad when I see him. He cares that much. I have always felt that he is so incredibly caring and open. He really listens & cares. Of all my doctors, he is my favorite. Excellent clinician too! I give him the highest recommendation! I've never had to wait long.

I called at 423pm, waited 7 minutes, got told twice by reception I was in line and to hold and then bang on 430pm they just cut me off. Terrible service and deliberate. Why are people so rude? I am clearly not ringing for fun and expected to wait but did not expect to be cut off so rudely. Sod u! Will spend my money elsewhere...

I wish I could give him ZERO stars! Horrible experience. He treated my father 3 years ago and we left his practice bc he was very condescending. He decided to dismiss my father from the practice because he basically told my father he was cured of cancer and when I asked his surgeon he basically told us that this was completely incorrect. So Dr Priego with his big ego because he was questioned decided to dismiss my father. He had the audacity to say it was a language barrier that my father misunderstood. That was completely false. I was in the room during the appointment when he told my father IN SPANISH! So definitely no language barrier there. It was basically a lie to try to cover his tail. We finally went to an oncologist who actually cared and wasn’t pompous. Shame on you Dr Priego. I will never recommend him to anyone. Worst. Doctor. Ever.

H e is the BEST doctor in town. I have been under his care since 1991 and Imam very pleased. He cares and he really feels your pain and sorrow. Those negative reports meant nothing to me or to anyone who really needs a professional ONCOLOGY DOCTOR. Thanks, GOD for Dr. Victor Priego.

For nearly 10 years, my husband, David, or I have been a patient of Dr. Priego for a number of conditions. Throughout those years, we have found him to be a very capable and compassionate physician. He is currently treating me for the recurrence of a rare and difficult to manage cancer. My case is complicated by the fact that I am also a transplant recipient. I absolutely trust him to work with my transplant doctors to coordinate my care, in hopes of achieving the optimum outcome.

Horrible doctor who likes to sit super close, but not say anything. He literally sat almost nose to nose with me, staring at his notes each visit… only to say “you’re doing fine”… NO details, no breakdown of what my results meant, literally nothing… took lots of probing on my end to get any answers at all. I have since stopped going to this person; I found an amazing doctor who helped me understand my condition, and why I have it in the first place. Dr. Priego offered no such thing!

Astonished that this individual would remove my father from his treatment plan for "inappropriate behavior" because my father voiced his opinion to his staff. Which wasn't aggressive or inappropriate at all. When you make a verbal-to-verbal agreement to only be seen by a specific doctor, you abide by it. Instead he sends his NP's to check on my father without even informing beforehand or bothering to check this lungs with a stethoscope, a simple standard procedure.

I would recommend Dr. Priego to anyone I know that has Cancer or blood disorders as he is a very compassionate Man and will give you a honest prognosis for your condition. He has a great staff of PA's and nurses that operate a state of the art facility, with the latest medications to treat your condition.

Dr. Priego and his staff made me feel comfortable and that's really important to me. Dr. Priego took his time and listened to my concerns and complaints that past doctors neglected. My first visit makes me look forward to my next visit and had iron injectafer treatment which was long needed. I want to thank my nurse who monitored me while I was getting injectafer she was awesome in making sure I was ok and kept me in good spirits.
