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! DrPrager 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.

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.
