I cannot say enough about how wonderful Dr. Prater is. His personality, his empathy, his skills in diagnosing, I am completely confident in his abilities. If he said to jump off a bridge to get better, I wouldn't question it! He's amazing and Geisinger is VERY fortunate to have him representing their health care system.

Doctor Prater always uses language you can understand. He checks everything. He also goes over my medications, he listens to my heart, and asks questions about my health. He always asks if there is anything else health related, I would like to go over. He is a very busy man but does not rush the visit. He makes you feel relaxed even though you are in a doctors office. He is the kind of doctor you can talk to, he listens to you.
Apr 6, 2016
All good experiences.

He is excellent takes all the time for all my questions & more.
March 28, 2016
My own opinion. You don't really allow much time with the doctor. Medical care today is run like people going through a line in a cafeteria. Rush in rush out. Bring back personal care like when I was young.
