I am a new patient and booked my appointment through Zocdoc. When I arrived I was promptly greeted, asked to fill out some info and then immediately taken back to a room. The assistant took my blood pressure and asked ifI had sinus issues as I was sniffing a lot due to seasonal allergies. Within 5 minutes Dr. Prattes came into the room, asked me some questions and wrote my prescriptions. He was very pleasant and listened to what I said and took notes in my file. He suggested a different prescription than the one I previously had and fully explained why. The whole appointment took less than a half an hour. I am very pleased with my choice to see Dr. Prattes!

A difficult part of finding a doctor is to find someone that you have a good rapport. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Prattes. He listened to my concerns and gave me good recommendations on both preventive measures (necessary shots) andissues that I have been having. I was pleased with the visit.

Excellent doctor. He is thorough and goes over all needed tests. It is evident he cares about his patients. He is a good listener. He spends time in deciding upon a diagnosis. If your condition is not one that he isable to treat he will refer you to a specialist. I have gone to Dr. Prattes for many years. He is a doctor whom I trust. He has a caring, helpful staff. I have always been able to book a same-day appointment when my health issue is urgent.

I liked the approach of Dr. Prattes and mostly that he is not part of a group where the docstors are different every time. Go to Dr. Prattes if you need a kind, understanding, knowledgeable and reliable MD. Raymond

Healthcare is already expensive and hard on most of us without these "doctors" that try to circumvent clearly stated copay rules. I will follow up with my insurance to make sure this "doctor" won't be leeching me dry. Most of the"positive" reviews are copy pasted else where from other sites into this site to balloon up his ratings. He's terrible. Overcharges without any reason nor valid receipt. And spending 2 minutes with your patient barely listening to them is not an office visit. I've taken it up myself to write a real review of this guy and his "wonderful" staff on every doc review site. If this helps even one poor patient in to go to a real doctor instead than I'll be happy. And yes i will copy paste this in every doc review site on this guy. I'm sure there will be new "positive" ones to counter effect this but at least the next patient that reads most of the reviews will figure out the truth.

Dr. Prattes was great, he listen to everything I had to say and addressed them, he even did his own blood draw....I never had a Dr draw blood before...no pain, no bruises and I didn't even turn into a pin cushion. ;-)

Doctor was very thorough. Took time to discuss issues. Seemed very experienced and knowledgeable. Office staff was very friendly and made me feel welcome. Did not have to wait long at all and even though the wait was fairly short, Iwas asked if I needed anything and was kept informed about how soon I would see the doctor. Even got a visit and update after I was in the examination room just before the doctor came in. They really took care of me.

I needed to get approval from my Primary Care Dr for cataract surgery. Since I have not had a primary care dr for the last few years as I am a full time RV'er I looked up Dr Prattes on theInternet and thought I would give him a try. I made an appt on line for the NEXT day and went in. He is extremely thorough and did blood work and recommended a couple of tests. He also raised a couple of issues I was not aware of and recommended follow-up. I am very please with Dr. Prattes and would highly recommend him to any one needing an excellent Primary Care Physician.

What a pleasant surprise! I had given up hope that there were any uncrowded, unrushed and caring medical professionals that were "in network" for our PPO which rewards us for using their contract doctors. I loathe urgent care and needed adoctor who could see me today. I had no problem making my appointment online this morning, filling out all of my paperwork online and I was seen within 3 hours of pressing "enter". Dr. Prattes office was uncrowded and clean. His staff was professional and courteous. I was seen on time and with little or no delays or waiting around. Dr. Prattes took the time to really sit down and learn about my personal health history before treating my bronchitis. I felt that he was truly an old school medical professional who has a lot to offer. I don't want to visit a doctor anytime soon, but I now know exactly where I will go next time I need a same day appointment.
