Dr. Prakash is the superman of surgeons in our book. My husband has had four different hernia surgeries performed by Dr. Prakash. The last of which was a dire emergency due to an incarcerated hernia, a separate strangulated hernia, bowel obstruction, and infection. We were just so thankful that Dr. Prakash was on staff that night at HFH, otherwise the outcome may have been different. My husband is doing much better thanks to the efficiency of this very gifted surgeon. Thank you so much.

Dr. Prakash took excellent care of my husband through two surgeries. He and his staff took the time to fully explain the procedure and the findings after the surgeries. The surgeries were completed with the utmost expertise and professionalism and fully resolved the issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Prakash to anyone looking for a general surgeon. We are completely satisfied with the service he provided.

Dr. Prakash is a congenial and caring man as well as a superb surgeon. He chose the right procedure in my case and the operation could not have gone any smoother; No glitches and an expedient recovery. Thanks to Dr. Prakash and his team, who were very professional and caring practitioners, as well as a most considerate group of people who were very easy to communicate with, the operation was a stress free experience. They are truly an asset to The Henry Ford Health Care System.

I truly believe in 'bedside manners' when it comes to the Doctor and staff. During my emergency surgery performed by Dr. Prakash, at Henry Ford Hospital, I felt as ease. He is patient, thorough and understanding. He listens! My follow up visit to his office was just as awesome. The staff is very friendly. I humbly appreciated how helpful and sincere the lady who answered the phone was. THOSE THINGS DO MATTER!!! I hope I do not leave anyone out. Kudos to Anu, Katie, Dr. Asim, Dr. Prakash.

Dr Prakash is an excellent surgeon. I brought my 95 year old father in with a bowel obstruction and after dealing with so many idiots who made my father worst at Henry Ford Macomb, Dr Prakash was basically the only one who was there to help my father. He not only fixed the bowel obstruction but he also removed a hernia that was a factor with his bowel obstruction. He was very kind and always came in to make sure my father was doing great. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone else!

Dr. Prakash performed hernia surgery on me. The operation went very well and I have recovered with little to no pain and discomfort. Dr Prakash was very good to work with, and he and his residents made sure I was well informed about the procedure and what to expect.

I highly recommend considering Dr. Prakash for surgery and treatment. He performed emergency surgery on me in June 2016 and I credit his prompt actions and diagnosis of my condition with saving my life. The follow up surgery in December 2016 was equally successful. I was also very impressed with the personal care and interest he and his surgical team extended to me during my two stays. I would offer my highest recommendation for Dr. Prakash and his surgical teams.
