I've been a patient here for years and just found out I may not be able to continue due to insurance issues. I wish Dr. Prather could become Medicare eligible so I can continue my much needed care at this office. I'd be dead if it hadn't been for the staff here and feel like I will fall back into old ways and end up worse if I have to leave.

Dr. Prather is a nice man. However, during every visit he would pull out his phone while I was talking and text. This is extremely unprofessional and unacceptable in this setting.

Well, I never met him. Reached out to him via email about my ptsd and social anxiety. After a couple of months Ifinally got the courage to make an appointment. I never had the chance to meet Dr. Prather. Instead they assigned me a counselor which made me feel uncomfortable by talking about my issues and day to day dealings . CBT therapy is not for me. But the staff seem nice. I just have a problem with people in general.

Dr. Prather is a great listener and has a calm and reassuring demeanor. The office staff are caring and knowledgeable. If you want a consistent, helpful and caring Doctor who will show compassion this is your place. I have been seeing Prather for almost 2 years about every week. I am happy with his services for sure.
