Dr. Price was very polite, relaxed and informative. I feel he took the time to explain my options and did not rush through the appointment. I was shown my xrays which helped to understand my situation. I did not feel pressuredto make up my mind and was given the opportunity to think my situation over.

Dr Price performed a shoulder reconstruction surgery which required labrum anchors and rotator cuff repair and some bone removal. I watched youtube video of others with similar surgeries and their recoveries prior to the surgery and was expectinga long painful recovery. I have to say that, for me with Dr. Price's work and the Physical Therapists at Athletico, I did not experience anything near what I was seeing and reading. As a very active weightlifter and thrower, I was back doing things very rapidly many things within the first couple weeks. Now at 4 months, I almost feel 100%. Dr. Price is a genius.

I like Dr. Price a lot. He is a good doctor, he explains things clearly, answers my questions, moves the appointment along well ( I am in and out quickly, but without feeling rushed - I have time to ask myquestions) - he is very knowledgable in his field and has a pleasant personality.

I went to my follow-up appt with Dr. Price and it was just as great as my first one. I was checked in by courteous staff and seen right away. I had waited maybe 3 minutes in the room before Dr.Price walked in and asked me how I was doing and apologized for the wait. Ha! I have waited for 30-60 mins on doctors before and they seem annoyed I am there. I always feel like most Dr's double or triple up on appointment times- how else do you explain the long wait times!?!? Ah, but I digress. Dr. Price went over my MRI results with me, made some adjustments to my brace and explained the treatment and the plan going forward so I knew exactly what to expect. In this day and age, I appreciate anyone who does a job well no matter what the profession. I can not testify for the rest of the doctors in this practice, but Dr. Price will get all of my referrals for orthopedic care.

Fast service including excellent bedside manner. His assistant, John was really professional too. I was in the office 20 mins before my appointment and was called 10 minutes before my appointment time. I walked in there worrying about beingpushed into surgery for a sprained knee and felt like that was the very last thing he wanted to do. I couldn't be happier with my initial consultation.
