BACK SURGERY WITH DOCTOR DAVID PRIOR ....

I HAD LOWER LUMBAR SURGERY IN MY BACK IN MARCH OF 2017. DOCTOR PRIOR WAS MY SURGEON OF CHOICE, AND I WAS COMPLETELY HAPPY, AND SATISFIED WITH HIS SKILL AND COMPASSIONATE CARE THAT HE GAVE ME. WHAT A TRULY GENUINE DOCTOR HE IS .... HE REALLY CARES ABOUT HIS PATIENTS, AND TREATS THEM LIKE FAMILY. AND YES, I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM, AND I WOULD HAVE HIM AGAIN AS MY SURGEON OF CHOICE.

My experience with Dr. David Prior

My experience with Dr. Prior was good. I felt at ease from the first appointment. He explained my injuries and medical options in a way I could fully understand. I am very leery of doctors, but I've been very impressed with Dr. Prior and the whole staff there at his office and the staff that looked after me during my hospital stay. I have already starting telling friends and family what a good experience I had. I'm glad I went to Dr. Prior for help.

Has his mind on you and no one else

I've seen Dr. Prior twice and his physician's assistant once. Each time I felt that only I mattered and that they'd go to every length to make sure I understood the diagnosis and their recommendations. Dr. Prior, even as a surgeon, has been adamant that surgery is the last resort. The first time I had to wait for him or his assistant I was felt a little put out, but when I realized just how much time was being spent with me discussing my case and checking me out, I realized that that was probably what was causing the lateness. From now on I will happily wait.

Fantastic Physician

We met Dr. Prior during Jan. of this year. My husband who has a list of medical issues received neck fusion from Dr. Prior. From the moment we met this kind gentleman, he paid full attention to all our concerns, ordered the necessary tests and the surgery was highly successful. He does not "rush" you, he answers any and all questions and is genuinely a kind man. Upon release from the hospital, knowing I am also disabled and provide full time care for my spouse, Dr. Prior offered release to a Rehab facility to give me a "much needed break". No other doctor in my 20 years of living in Roanoke has ever taken the time to try to assist me also knowing the job I face each day. He truly cared about the patient and his family. His bedside manner is wonderful and his skills are the best. Dr. Prior is the kind of doctor that all should strive to be. He will always be number 1 in our book.
