Dr. Pryor is excellent. I've been to many ENTs, and he's the first one who I felt understood my issues and was willing to take my input into account. His background in both ENT and facial reconstruction was particularly helpful given my history of craniofacial reconstructive surgery. I recommend him for anyone, but especially if your ENT issues are related to prior reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Pryor spent very little time listening to my concerns. I left having to see a new doctor, to address the same concern.

I made a first time appointment with Dr.Pryor through ZocDoc on Sunday for Monday afternoon. Very easy to do and received a confirmation Monday morning at 7:20. All necessary paperwork was available online to download and complete before visit. After checking in, I waited less than 10 minutes to be seen by the audiologist for a quick peek into my plugged up ear. She then escorted me to exam room, where I waited about 10 minutes for Dr.Pryor. Having the equipment to look way into my ear, he immediately found the cause and quickly restored my hearing. He then gave me instructions to continue a routine for a week. I decided to see an ENT doctor after two visit to my primary care office, seeing two different doctors, to remedy my hearing loss and drainage of my right ear, to no avail. Most often my PC doctor can take care of my issues, and I highly regard him. On occasion a specialist has to take command of the situation. Dr. Pryor stepped right in and handled my needs. He has my vote.

Very professional. Best thing I liked about him was the fact that he listened completely to what I had to say. And,he discussed a plan of action with me rather than just ordering a bunch of tests and not even talking to me about them.

I loved how comfortable I felt chatting with Dr. Pryor. I came to him for a second opinion for a tonsillectomy and was immediately put at ease by his obvious vast knowledge and easy going personality. He treated me like a friend, not a number, and he let me know he understood why I had questions after leaving my previous ENT appointment. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pryor and have already scheduled my tonsil surgery. I appreciate how much detail he provided when answering my questions, as well as when he set expectations for the surgery.

I can't say enough about the professionalism and kindness of Dr. Pryor. He answered all of my questions, genuinely listened to my concerns and made me feel like I was his first priority. He calmed my fears and made sure I understood the next steps. I have never needed an ENT before but if I ever do again, Dr. Pryor will be my 1st choice. Finally, even though the wait was a little long, the front desk and nursing staff were awesome too.

I have seen Dr. Pryor quite a few times now due to various symptoms and he always treats me as if I was his only patient with utmost patience, understanding, and respect. His treatment plans have always helped me and eventually cured one of my main issues with a throat ulcer. I highly recommend him!

Great office staff all round, other than the , all too common records from Zoc Doc not being complete , e.g, I hate filling out the same redundant forms, when sick less so:) Anyway the audiologist on site, Dr Shepherd and all the staff I was in contact with did a great job of explaining the options, and then was able to carry out an in office procedure which was a pain in the ear, but got rid of a much larger pain :) Was handled well, they were attentive and checked how I was throughout. While I never want one of those again , by Any Doctor, this went as well as it could

I went to Dr Pryor with an ear problem. After he had addressed that issue, he asked me about the sutures on my neck (from a very old surgery). Dr Pryor had noticed that I was retaining fluid in my face and neck (caused by the previous surgery) and told me that he thought a lymphatic face message might help. He even recommended a place where I could go for the message. This water retention in my face has been a problem for some time and was making me depressed as it is very unattractive so I was thrilled when the lymphatic face message worked so well. Dr Pryor not only took care of the problem I went to see him about, he also noticed and addressed a problem that I never thought to ask him about- in my opinion, that is the sign of a great doctor!

As the third member of my family to see Dr. Pryor, I was equally as satisfied. He is knowledgeable and efficient with an easy going manner that complimented his expertise. The office staff was friendly and the entire experience was one that I would highly recommend- (and I have!) He is a very special specialist!!

Dr. Pryor was very attentive and listened closely to my problem. He never lost his focus, (like other doctors who just want to go to their next patient!). After learning of my condition and symptoms he came up with a plan and explained what he could do and also what he couldn't do and suggested other specialists I should see. This was my second visit with Dr. Pryor and I like him very much and would recommend him to everyone!

I have not been back to Dr. Pryor, I went to several appointments without results, this is regarding recurring ear infections I have been having since 1/1/15. An ER Doctor told me I had allergies and needed to see an ENT. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Pryor, I have seen him several times without relief. The last visit I was prescribed an ear drop (acid type), due to an issue I was having. My ear swelled up twice its size. I discontinued the drops and called the office, I left a message for Dr. Pryor,s Assistant (Mary) on I believe 5/19, I never recieved a returned call. I will find someone that is interested in helping.
