As I mentioned in the first comments section, I trust Dr. Prater with my life and my children's health. He listens, understands, explains, and provides a thorough and efficient visit. He does NOT make it seem like you are just a number, but he focuses on his patient and gives them the time and attention they deserve. He truly cares about his patients and is compassionate to their situations. He is an all-star physician!

Dr. Prater has been my family physician for years going back to when he was in his own solo practice. He is one of the most respecftul, knowledgeable, down-to-earth medical professionals I have ever encountered. As I work for Geisinger in the capacity as a healthcare provider, this is extremely important. I would hope this feedback would be shared with him and the lead doctor at the clinic. More physicians should be like him

I have had Dr.Prater as my family Dr for more than 14 yes{illegible or inappropriate content}had it not been for him with his caring n'explaining I don't know where I'd be today{illegible or inappropriate content}.He was the one who found out I had Kidney failure and was very quick to see that I had the right testing and care for my condition and I might add this was all done based on a first visit..So therefore my praises for this fine Dr may be a bit biased on my part but other patients I recommended also feel the same .way{illegible or inappropriate content}{illegible or inappropriate content}..asseasset ass
