For over the past 20 years, we’ve celebrated the Valley’s best. From the top businesses and professionals to the people who make it all happen, Arizona Foothills Magazine’s annual Best of Our Valley contest recognizes Arizona’s crème de la crème across more than 400 categories. From the best doctors and best resort down to the best cup of coffee you can find around town, each Best of titleholder is chosen by those who know the city best – our readers.
Each week, we’ll be highlighting individual winners from Best of Our Valley 2018, who share their advice, insights and thoughts on what it means to be a part of this exclusive list.
The Best of spotlight is on Dr. Pablo Prichard, who claimed Best Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon – Male. Congrats, Dr. Prichard!
AFM: In a brief 2-3 sentences, please tell us a little bit about you!
Dr. Prichard: I am originally from Argentina, but have lived in many areas throughout America. Throughout my life I have enjoyed meeting new people, new experiences, and hobbies, such as tennis and piano . Currently I am staying very busy with my plastic surgery office and opening up a new cancer treatment center, Vincere, which we are very excited about.
AFM: What does it mean to you to be a Best of Our Valley winner?
Dr. Prichard: The best part about winning Best of Our Valley is knowing I won this because of my amazing patients, friends and family voting for me. Patient satisfaction is everything and it makes what I do very rewarding.
AFM: What’s your favorite part about being the Best of Our Valley’s Best Best Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Dr. Prichard: Plastic and reconstructive surgery is a true passion of mine and to be recognized for your hard work by your patients and peers means a lot.
AFM: What advice would you give to others to be the “best” in your field?
Dr. Prichard: Being passionate about your craft is important, but it also starts with having a solid team around you so that we can all provide the best service to our patients. By having a great team of people assisting me and my patients, I am able to focus more on the clinical side of my practice providing the best treatment possible.
AFM: Have you seen any benefits as a result of being a BOOV winner?
Dr. Prichard: Almost all of my new patients are referred to me from other physicians and current patients. It is always an honor winning this Best of Our Valley but it’s a reminder that you only win this by continuing to provide top notch service to your patients.
AFM: How do you put your “best” foot forward every day?
Dr. Prichard: When you love what you do, it’s easy waking up every morning ready to take the day on.
