Aurora Pryor, M.D.
My first impression of Dr. Pryor was that she looked very young, however, after meeting and speaking with her, I realized she was more than competent. She is extremely experienced and well spoken about the procedure she performed (RNY). Her bedside manner is warm.
Duke, I believe, has a wonderful program, however, with any program there are issues. Some of the problems I have experienced are: not having my phone calls returned, waiting excessive amounts of time to see the surgeon (2-3 hours in the waiting room), and not getting to see the surgeon at all, instead seeing the resident.
I was very disappointed at my three week appointment that I did not get to see Dr. Pryor. After waiting for three hours in the waiting room, I was finally taken to a room to see the resident. I don't feel he addressed all of my concerns and I was rushed out. When I made my three month appointment I was advised by reception that this happens quite often and that I should consider scheduling my next appointment with the nurse practitioner, which I did.
Overall, I would rate Dr. Pryor very high, however, the program needs to be structured better so she is able to meet all the needs of her patients. A more reliable office staff is needed as well. Again, this is my experience and in no way reflects on the experiences of others.
Latest Surgery Support Comments
I haven't always been overweight, but for most of my teenage years and all of my adult years I have been obese. I am most definately an emotional eater, so transitioning to finding things I can do when I'm stressed, bored, or happy that don't involve food is a process. My mom had WLS five years ago and her transition has been wonderful. It is hurtful when anyone else tries to tell you that you need to do something. It was a decision that I had to come to on my own and I am so grateful that I chose to have RNY.
