Dr.Prasad has been wonderful. He truly cares about is patients. When I had my cancer surgery he came to check on me 4 times a day. He took out my drains not the nurse. I have been his patient for 3 years and feel that I am blessed to have him for my ENT.

Dr. Prasad is the best! My husband underwent a total laryengectomy and due to prior radiation treatment, he had numerous complications. Dr. Prasad is very attentive to my husband and made many special trips to the hospital to attend to his specific needs. He is quite kind and even takes as much time as needed to inform and calm this concerned wife.

Amazing. Kind, professional, always takes his time with me. Been seeing Dr. P. since 2015. This fine surgeon is simply above reproach. I would recommend him without reservation to anyone needing ENT or head and neck surgery. His office staff should be commended on their efficiency and friendliness as well. Marsha, his Nurse is always eager to assist and treats me like a patient wishes to be treated.

Rude and upsetting service! My husband waited over a month for his appointment. Took time off work, drove 1/2 hour to appointment only to be told Dr. Prasad was .... NOT coming to this location today. No one called us to notify us of change. Receptionist said "we have been having issues with that". Very inconsiderate of his clients time.

The most unprofessional Doctor I have ever been to. My primary physician referred me to his office because I have had a swollen lymph node on my collar bone for 2 years. He touched my collar bone and said it was just my collar bone and told me it was "basic anatamy."I walked out of the appointment after about 2 minutes because I knew he wasn't interested in helping me. He was very abrasive and unprofessional and I hope that he learns to treat his patients with more respect.
