I have been a physical therapist in Tucson and Oro Valley for over 20 years. I have treated thousands of patients after they have had surgery. As a result, I get to hear the real feedback about the patient's experience; I also get to to see the clinical result. Of the many surgeons in Tucson and Oro Valley, Dr. Prickett is absolutely one of the best. He is a great teacher and takes the time to ensure that his patients understand the diagnosis and treatment plan. His patients rave about the great care and results. Not all surgeons are great doctors, he is both. I highly recommend Dr. Prickett.
