    Even before Dr. Prada completed my first surgery, I was very impressed by his accomplishments. All the staff at Laser Spine had nothing but the highest compliments for this surgeon. I saw him several times prior to surgery and appreciated how detailed he was regarding locating the exact source of my pain. On the day of surgery, he was reassuring and visited me several times. The surgery resolved the pain just as he promised. I requested him for my second surgery.

    Dr. Prada & the staff at Tampa laser Spine Institute are the best. I had 3 spine surgeries eliminating my pain totally.

    Extremely professional and totally outstanding surgeon. I was in the operating room at 0745 and in Dennys at 1000 having breakfast totally pain free after having a synovial cyst removed by Doctor Prada

    My experience with Dr. Prada and his nurse, Jessica, was unbelievable! They are definitely the "A" team. Not only are they top of the line professionally, they truly care about their patients. They go out of their way to explain all questions with patience, but with a language the patient can understand. Would I do this again with Dr. Prada and Jessica? Absolutely!! I hope others will as well. Tommy Gibbs Hot Springs, AR

    Dr. Prada has wonderful bed side manners. He spent a lot of time to explain the results of my test results and what options were available for treatment. Very empathic. and professional. Surgery went better that expected. Staff at the facility were pleasant and compassionate. Ensure my comfort and other needs were met throughout entire process!

    500 characters is not enough space to review Dr. Prada. First he has saved my life. This is a fact. I could not even hardly get up and move. After 5 surgeries on my spine of damage I caused he has identified the problem and corrected each area of my spine. These injuries were caused by sports and auto accidents i had over 30 years ago they finally came to the surface after 8 years ago with extreme pain. I can only say he was a Godsend and I am humble.

    Dr. Prada is an exceptional surgeon. He listened to my concerns and did not jump into an operation without trying more conservative measures first. Unfortunately, conservative treatments did not help and I had to have a Left L4/5 decompression at only 25 years old (in the middle of my nurse practitioner schooling). He did everything possible to squeeze me in during my school break, and I was back to school and work within 2 weeks after surgery. I truly got my life back, as cheesy as it sounds.

    Dr.Prada helped me understand what I needed for treatment and made me understand the outcome of surgery and what I could expect and couldn't! He's honest and straight-forward and very caring and he's very knowledgeable! I highly recommend him for a surgeon!

    He made me very comfortable and trusted him with every aspect of my procedure , they axually tried to give me another doctor the night before surgery and I would not have it that's how comfortable I was with Dr. Prada
