Very knowledgeable, kind, listens to you, takes his time with you, just such a wonderful wonderful doctor! Thank you Dr. Prager, we need more doctors like you in this world!

The doctor was fine and helpful, but this office incorrectly billed me. I was told a medical device wasn’t covered by insurance, so I took their word for it and paid out of pocket. A year or two later, I had to replace the device, and tried to get reimbursed via FSA money. It was then revealed that this WAS covered and it took weeks of back and forth between them, me, and my insurance to resolve the issue and get properly reimbursed for the second device. It was too late to be reimbursed for the first charge by the time it was resolved. They also emailed me an itemized receipt that was actually for a different patient with the same name, which added to the confusion of something that shouldn’t have been an issue in the first place.

Dr. Prager was able to fit me in his office schedule and surgical center on very short notice. Both the office and the surgical center staff were professional, friendly, and very efficient and skilled. Both followed Covid precautions and I felt safe. I would recommend Dr. Prager without reservation because he is a highly skilled surgeon and practitioner. He has a pleasant personality and is very thorough in his history taking, exam and explanation of the procedure. He answered all my questions. Truly, one of my best surgical experiences I’ve had.

I met Dr. Prager at the hospital. He came to drain an abscess in my throat. The first surprise is he came early in the morning (8am). He came in the room, looked me straight in the eye, gave me a real smile and shook my hand. He explained everything in terms that I could understand. He was calm and used a quiet comforting voice. He even had humor as he was about to drain my tonsil and said I would probably not like him very much. Quite the opposite. I was so impressed. He's wonderful!

Dr. Prager is absolutely wonderful! He is very kind, professional, knowledeable, and caring. I had a terrible infection in my ear canal, to the point that it was swollen shut, and he got me in the same day that I called. He even gave me his cell phond number in case I needed him on a Saturday; you don't get doctors like that anymore! The staff was also very friendly and helpful.

On 12/28/15, I visited Dr. Prager's office at 8:00AM because I was afraid That I was losing my hearing in my right ear. Unlike another ENT office and despite my urgent concerns, they would not see me until Feb, 9, 2016. Dr. Prager and his staff were very considerate of my concerns and immediately provide a complete and thorough examination which alloyed my fears and provided assurance that my hearing was intact. I told them how much I appreciated their help. I would highly recommend DrPrager
