Dr. Price is an is a rare doctor, her depth and range of knowledge within her field of practice is exceptional. In particular, if you are seeking help with complicated health issues she will go beyond the standard blood testing and routine physical. When your test results come back negative, she doesn't shrug her shoulders and say sorry, try an anti-depressant. She understands (as many doctors apparently do not) and is not afraid of the idea that our complicated bodies can have complicated health issues that interact with each other and that there are times when a doctor needs to act as investigator. That said, she is a bit different and I could see some people being put off. My only complain is that the office she works is awful. The clerical and scheduling staff as well as some nurses are just unhelpful and downright unpleasant. It reminds of living back in NY. They will not offer or go out of their way to be helpful in any way. I would absolutely not go to this practice if I had a choice but Dr. Price is one of only a few doctors on the west coast with training in my particular health concerns. Oh well, still glad I found her.

Dr. Price is an AMAZING physician with a broad knowledge base and is very communicative and personable. If she cannot help you, she rolls her sleeves up to find someone who can, and she knows that one size does not fit all in medicine and looks at the big picture. She brilliantly diagnosed 2 very rare and aggressive diseases that I have after Loma Linda, Stanford and OHSU could not. She is not only brilliant, but she is an amazing person who gives her life in service to others. I am a healthcare professional myself and find Dr. Price to be a rare gem!

Dr Salter Price is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her patients. She has a few different nurses and some are better than others so if you don't get a great one today, try again. Domenique is the best nurse in that office! She listens & wants to help solve your problems and she never acts rushed.

My primary Doc has thought for years I had allergies. Dr Price suggested maybe I have acid reflux instead due to my symptoms, maybe diet change/time of eating & perhaps a visit to ear nose & throat Dr. might be useful, gave a list of recommended ones. Also suggested a mild over the counter allergy med to try or not as I did have mild symptoms of allergies. She asked pertinent questions, was quick, gentle and to the point. She seemed very knowledgable. I'm glad I went!

This was my first time seeing Dr. Price and the entire staff was so kind and helpful. The ladies working at the front desk were very helpful and hospitable, but unfortunately I was so nervous I don't know the name of the woman who helped me. She had short, dark hair and a pleasant face. The first person from the medical staff I spoke with was Rebecca C. and she was very personable, attentive, and thorough. I felt completely comfortable from the get-go even though I have social anxiety disorder. She told me exactly what I could expect from the appointment and when I expressed concern regarding the costs of the tests and how much my insurance would cover, she was totally understanding. Dr. Price herself was very warm, gentle, and soft-spoken. One of the things I worried about was how my case would be perceived by the doctor; I suspected I was allergic to cats [I am] and I own three of them and work as a veterinary assistant. I was worried she would tell me I had no choice but to get rid of my cats and quit my job. However, she was very understanding and her long-term plan allows me to keep my pets and hopefully bring me some comfort. Her scribe, Sal, was very nice as well! Lastly, I met with Domenique L. She was the technician [I'm not sure of her actual title; I was so nervous] who administered the prick test and a vaccine. She was so helpful and kind and was honest and up front with me about recommendations I'd heard from other people and how they might help [or might not help] with my issue. I really appreciated how kind she was, and the fact that she talked me through everything. Everyone was really great! They took time to explain things without being patronizing and were all so great! To be honest this was the first time I was excited about a doctor's appointment [my allergies have bothered me for years] and they didn't disappoint at all. I'm very grateful I met these lovely people!

Dr Price and her staff are amazing. Dr. Price's approach is wholistic and she provides unique strategies that minimize the side-effects of typical western medicine approaches. Her assistants are very helpful and knowledgable and always get back to me in a timely way when I call with a question. Anyone who is suffering from allergies, immune system issues, GI issues related to allergens, etc. should try Dr. Price. She is one of a kind. It is a trek for me to go to her office, but she is worth it. I highly recommend Dr. Price.

I wish I'd been referred to her five years ago. Her staff are very professional and the communication is excellent. Intake notes on symptoms are taken by a nurse, read by Dr Price whose recommendations are also written by a scribe. After the visit her treatment plans are again gone over with by a nurse so that treatment and prescriptions are understood.

Dr. Price is very professional and knowledgeable. One of the things I appreciate most about her is that she respects my concerns and opinions, particularly regarding taking medications. The one thing that I find frustrating is that I usually have to wait about 45 minutes in the waiting room before I'm even taken into an examination room where I talk with the nurse, then wait another 15 minutes before Dr. Price comes in. Consequently, an appointment usually means that I'm in the doctor's office 90 minutes including the waiting time.

Each time I have seen Dr. Price, my office visit takes more than three hours for a 10 minute consult plus testing. If the ten minutes is up, she backs out of the room and nurses come in. My questions have not been answered. I always have trouble getting my test results sent to my primary care doctor, even after many calls and requests to Dr. Price's office staff.

As always Dr. Price was thorough, took the time necessary and had a very pleasing bedside manner. The long wait was due to bad weather and road conditions for which Dr. Price apologized.

Dr. Price is the best and I would highly recommend her. She is very professional, very knowledgeable, and a good educator. The only negative is the wait time to get in to see her. This has been my experience every time I see her, and not just this visit. Based on that I had allowed an hour that day for my time to be at her office. The assistant called me into the exam room after I had waited 1/2 hour in the waiting room. I asked her if I was going to be able to out by the time I needed to leave for my next appointment. She said she would make sure that I got seen next. I was grateful for that, but knew that it meant that others, in their exam rooms, would just need to wait longer. I greatly appreciate the time that Dr. Price spends with me. I think that either her patients should not be scheduled so closely together OR her patients should be told to allow plenty of time as they will need to wait.

I arrived 15 minutes early, like I was told, to fill out the appropriate paperwork. My appointment was scheduled for 8:30, yet I didn't see the actual doctor until 9:35. Actual appointment was very good and very informative, but the wait time was unacceptable.

Dr. Price is wonderful. Kind and full of practical ideas. Good teacher. The wait to see her however was unacceptable. I was warned at check in that it might be half an hour and it was over an hour. During that time no one updated me about further delays. I can't spend half a day just trying to get my child in and out of an allergy appointment. I am seriously considering finding a new practice though we would miss Dr. Price.
