Patient Comments (4)
in Gaithersburg, MD |
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.
