Dr. Pratter saved my mother's life when he found her cancer after no one else did. He made himself available to be reached via MyCooper days, nights, and weekends. Dr. Pratter took the time to answer any questions. He advocated for my mom's care and his staff hold time same high standards. Especially his patient navigator. His mind is sharp and brilliant. I can't say enough about his professionalism, skill, and demeanor. He is truly gifted. The most empathetic doctor I've ever met.
