This was my first visit with Dr. Price. I was very impressed that she had read my chart prior to my visit, and was very prepared to see me.

Dr. Price is highly knowledgeable of GI issues. She communicates with kindness and respect. She one of the few doctors I've ever had with this amazing level of respect. Swedish is LUCKY to have Dr. Leslie Price!

Dr. Price did a diagnostic procedure on me about two months ago. Her staff called a few days later to schedule a followup appointment, and this was the soonest they could to get me in. I assumed that I didn't have anything dire and life-threatening, since they were making me wait this long, but I really didn't know for sure! When I finally saw her, Dr. Price seemed to think she had given me her diagnosis right after the procedure, but I'm sure she didn't. I asked my husband (who was there with me in recovery when she came and talked with me), thinking maybe the sedative had made me forget, but he didn't hear her mention it, either.

[...] Dr. Price is great if I suggest a procedure then she orders it but I feel like I have had to figure out a lot on my own & she has not done a good job of diagnosing me. I have been in excruciating pain for more than a handful of years now & I just lost 2 more years seeing Dr. Price. She seemed to only finally pay attention when I wrote on [...] her that I was in so much pain [...] that I couldn't function. [...]

Dr. Price covered a lot of information with me. She was very thorough and appeared to have no difficulty really spending time with me. I really appreciated that. She did talk somewhat fast and had a soft voice. Because she was wearing a mask (due to a cold) it was even more difficult to understand her. Overall, it was a very good experience and I feel Dr. Price is the person to help me search for the root cause of my concerns.

Obviously I like Dr. Price

Dr. Price is fantastic in every way. I liked her explanations. She spoke clearly and calmly. She is warm and engaging. Very positive feelings about my experience with her. I feel strongly confident in her abilities to care for my well- being.

This is the second visit in a row that she was extremely late. I cannot recommend that to anyone. There are surely other qualified docs who are on time.

Dr. was very good - this was my only/and first visit. It will take more visits to know how well my treatment goes.
