Verified Patient Reviews
I'm hoping this will be a great overall experience. We only had one appointment but after the MRI we will know more. Looking forward to a great experience and a speedy recovery.
It went very well!!' The appt was for my husband & he appreciated Dr Prager's honesty & straight forward manner. Dr. Prager answered all questions pertaining to the visit.
i was charged a co-pay that I shouldn't to have to pay
I still have to go back for the MRI results but I liked him. Very professional and seemed to want to know me instead of being like a robot going from person to person.
The process was fast. It was not that long of a wait to be seen by the actual doctor. I was told what was needed and was out. Great experience for having to see a doctor.
He was great explained things quite well
Dr Prager was fantastic. Very thorough, took time to listen, got to know me and not just my symptoms. This is one doctor focused on his patients well-being! Thanks Dr Prager.
He was very brief and straight to the point kind of person. He wasn't rude at all. And if I ever had a hand issue again I'd go to him. Wait time was really fast both times that I went through. I don't remember waiting hours or checking my phone to see how long it took.
Dr Prager is amazing! I had been to two other orthopedic surgeons for my chronic back pain and scoliosis in the past two months and each only took X-rays and sent me away with prescriptions. I wanted answers, not drugs! Dr Prager promised me he 'would not drop the ball' on this issue and ordered additional testing and even spent time going through my long list of questions. He was very patient and genuinely cared about my health. I highly recommend Dr Prager to anyone in need of a great orthopedic doctor.
Very quick to diagnose and Very Knowledgeable of what was wrong, Fantastic Doctor.

He wasn't that friendly. I know the doctors are professionals and they know best but I felt I needed a knee brace and he wouldn't perscribe one for me. I'll never go back again. Thank you anyway.
