I went for a follow up after thyroid surgery, I was suffering from severe allergies, Dr. Prater checked my sinuses, ears, nose & throat out while I was there, gave me an allergy shot, and nose drops. I didn't even ask him to! Most specialists will not even do anything for a patient except the one thing they are being seen for!!! I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Prater is extremely knowledgeable and has a very caring bedside manner. He takes time explaining your problem and your options. He is extremely devoted to his patients. We trust him explicitly and can't recommend him high enough. He saved my husbands life. He continues to be both of our Doctor. His office is very well managed.

I was seen by Dr. Prater several years ago, and he removed some polyps on my vocal cords. My voice was hoarse and raspy, and improved after he removed the polyps. This past August, he removed my left tonsil, and thank goodness, it wasn't cancer like he had suspected. Just a badly infected tonsil. Dr. Prater was very kind and compassionate with me, took his time, and didn't rush me through the visit. I so appreciate doctors that show they care about their patients. Thanks, Dr. Prater!

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.
