I would highly recommend Dr. Prater for any medical issue. He takes his time with patients and does not hurry through an appointment. As I am a snowbird, he encouraged me to visit an ENT in my local should I have problems in the summer to not wait. While I had seen a ENT several years ago for the same problem, Dr. Prater explained my condition more clearly and recommended medical plan. He treats patients with respect.

I still have problems with my ear. I paid him $134 dollars and he looked at my ear and asked me what I put in it and I told him a Q-tip and he told me to stop doing it. And I said is that it? And he said yes, what do you want? I Said how about cleaning the wax in my ear. Dr. Prater said no I am not going to do anything, I am going to give you a prescription an Don't use Q-tips. Terrible Obnoxious Doctor, bad manners and bad treatment.
