My 16 year old son broke his ankle exactly one year ago playing soccer. Dr. Prickett saw him immediately, even though he has more than enough to do being the UA FB team surgeon. He said he had seen a few of these similar breaks before, knew exactly what to do, and fixed it. Two pins and a plate later, my son was able to walk on it in two months...back to soccer in 6 months. He is at the top of his game.

Dr Prickett is an excellent surgeon. I went in with a badly broken shoulder that had been previously operated on by another surgeon but was still experiencing pain and very little range of motion. After removing the screws and plate and replacing shoulder I am now pain free and have very close to full motion. I appreciated Dr Prickett's frankness when I first went in for my consultation asking me what my expectations were. I said pain, that I understood that I might not get full use. I did tho!

Dr. Prickett repaired my meniscal tears I was up the same day and never even needed the pain meds. whole process was fast and smooth. Great Doctor and very professional.
