Dr. Prather and his staff were wonderful.
in New Orleans, LA |
Dr. Prather is very smart and a highly skilled physician with a kind and patient bedside manner. His staff is most professional and attentive to all patient needs. I was extremely apprehensive about how painful it would be and what my scar would look like from having surgery on my cheek. His staff calmed me down and made me feel at ease the whole time I was there. Dr. Prather's cosmetic results are amazing! I cannot envision a better Mohr's experience.
