"Dr. Pratt fought my insurance company for my necessary surgery. Day of surgery I was in and out in less than 40 minutes. The staff was polite and professional. The doc even took off a couple of skin tags that the insurance wouldn't cover. Above and beyond. 11/10"

"I owe a lot to Dr Pratt. During my third trimester of pregnancy with my son nearly 6 years ago now, I was stricken with facial paralysis that I never fully recovered from. As vein as I might be seen to some, I have no doubt they’d come to understand completely if they lived it themselves. I have spent the past years hiding from my friends and family as much as possible. What should have been some of the best and most memorable times of my life, I only grew more and more uncomfortable expressing myself. Besides being constantly distracted by a constant eye twitching, face pulling-- sensations that were too intense for me to block out of my mind, I also lived in fear of pain from being stared at, because it was the reaction I had been faced with now that it was no secret that "something was off" when you looked at me. That was taking my happiness from me. Not wanting to smile was taking me down. The moment I first met Dr Pratt and told him my story, I felt he was able to meet me in my pain, and that he wanted to see me gain back part of me that I lost. The solution, had a simple answer, yet it was not just as easy as that. The time and care he takes to put Botox into very specific areas of my face on both sides to make it as symmetrical as possible, I have been given back confidence and the ability to enjoy life more and more. Besides my partner for being the one who initially arranged for me to be seen by Dr Pratt, when I had felt defeated and emptied, Dr Pratt truly is the one person I have to thank for giving me the life I thought I had lost forever. Thank you Dr David Pratt."
"I had eyelid surgery with Dr. Pratt and he is very hands on, open about the procedure and a very talented surgeon with years of experience and above all, very witty, which I like. The procedure was easy and painless. Recovery was awesome, no drugs needed at all. His surgery center nurses are awesome and very comforting. Billing staff are wonderful along with the front desk. I am so happy with my experience that I would recommend this facility to anyone trying to decide on surgery. Thank you for making my experience wonderful."
