The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Prato.
“Very informative and good patient interaction, I would certainly recommend anyone to see Dr. Prato's Office.”
– Kathy M.
“Dr. Prato is talented and professional. Would highly recommend. I appreciated finding out about surgery options and what I could expect. Surgery was a success and it ended my night time pain. Nice clean facility. Friendly staff. Thank you Dr. Prato!”
– John D.
“Skilled professional. My surgery did not require a tenotomy, so I didn't end up with Popeye arm. Make sure you don't sign up for that. I had a quick recovery and benefited from the PT for 2 months after surgery. I am still building strength and am happy with the results. I would recommend Dr. Prato and his team.”
– John D.

“I was very impressed with Dr. Prato today. He could easily have said yep lets cut on your shoulder, but after examining me, he realized the more significant issue was the frozen shoulder and until that is resolved surgery is pointless. I'm grateful that he genuinely cares for my health and well being.”
