My husband sees Dr. Prager. Dr. Prager was the Cardiologist who recommended and put my husband’s ICD/Pacemaker in. We have been through three ICD/Pacemakers and Dr. Prager has been the doctor who has done the replacements. Dr. Prager also has helped my husband when he had issues getting back to work. He personally talked to us and helped clarify things with the company. When I needed to see a cardiologist, there was only one doctor I wanted to see and that was Dr. Prager.

Dr Prager implanted a pace maker in me on Oct 28, 2010 and it has served me extremely well. I have had no trouble with it and have complete faith in the devise. On my last visit I was told that it will last another three years, indicating a total of eleven years of faithful use. My visits to Dr Prager and his staff have always been pleasant and courteous. I have always been treated in a timely fashion and the visit is always in the shortest amount of time.

Dr. Prager is a great, attentive and compassionate physician. I have been his patient for years and I suffered from arrhythmia which in my case was not life threatening but severely emotionally disabling because it was so disconcerting to feel as though my heart was jumping around in my chest. I did see other cardiologists for the condition and it was Dr. Prager who resolved the issue and gave me a new lease on living my life to the fullest.

Dr. Prager has the best bedside manner I have ever experienced. I have seen lots of doctors in my lifetime. Dr. Prager shares his knowledge with compassion and demonstrates that he truly cares for me as his patient. The staff at Denver Cardiology follows this bedside manner with their attentiveness and quick response to my calls for help. Chad, Charles, Marlayna and the nurses are the best. My partner is a retired nurse and always comments how fortunate that I receive such dynamic care.

If you are looking for heart care, you could not find a better physician. He treated me on an emergency basis for a heart attack in 1997. He is now treating me for a afib condition. I believe that Dr. Prager provides the best cardiac care possible.
