Ratings for Dr. Joshua Prager
No more thoughts of suicide. After so many failures elsewhere, I went to see Dr. prager for ketamine treatment. My pain is most gone but a small amount remains. The most important thing is that I feel differently about my life after his pain rehab program. thanks to ratemds for helping me find him,
We have seen more than 10 pain doctors. As a physician myself he was the first one I trusted with my wife's health. He is kind caring and competent and a bit full of himself ( and has a sense of humor about it) but I still highly recommend him.
When I found out how much he charges for his first consultation I was reluctant to go see him. After the consult I understand why does that. He spent more than two hours with my husband and me explaining alternatives. I haven'my decision on what treatment I will pursue but am grateful it was all laid out for us to understand. I feel I got my money's worth and you get what you pay for.
My Dr. at Stanford Recommended Dr. Prager to fix my stimulator after my Dr. in Carmel did a bad job both putting it in and then attempting to fix it. I went down to LA and he evaluated it and made some recommendations for revision. He asked a colleague to help him and they did a great job and it is working now. Worth the distance and expense. It was easy to see him because my Dr. Called. otherwise I think I would have more trouble getting in to see him
Had seen several docs after my pump was implanted in Nevada and noone could make it work. I found a paper on the internet written about Best Practices and decided to see him. that was difficult because he wants a request from a physician before you can see him and I didn't want to ask my pain doc for the referral. My primary doc sent him a note and then he wanted me to leave a deposit for the appointment. finally a month later I saw him and it was worth the wait. He didn't take my insurance as payment in full but he made my pump work and I no longer take any other pain meds and my pain is never greater than 2/10. It was worth the trouble to get an expert to help me like no other docs could. Thank G_D for Dr. Prager
