“After signing in at the computer station, I sat down in the waiting area, and within 4 to 5 minutes, I got taken to the examination room. Within 10 minutes, Dr. Prato was with me. We went over my options and decided to operate. When I left, I felt that I was well informed and knew what to expect on the operation day. The booklet they gave me was beneficial in educating me.

Hip Reviews

“Everyone from the front desk to all personnel and those dealing directly with me was so helpful, caring, and responsible. For me, it made a big difference. The staff and doctor took excellent care of me in all essential and menial situations. I had a previous hip replacement in 2001 by another surgeon who left town shortly after my surgery. When I awoke from anesthesia, my right hip was worse than before surgery. Dr. Prato replaced the other hip, and I am doing so well without pain. I want to thank everyone for caring and doing a fantastic job with me before, during, and after surgery.”
– Barbara Z.
