Excellent doctor

Dr.Prahenski is an excellent surgeon. He was very attentive to our 93 year old mother and took the time to make sure she understood everything that was going on - not easy with her severe hearing loss. He is outstanding.

Didn't listen to complaint or fix problem. Didn't correct mistake made on diagnosis letter, even after constant complaining about problem. Only wanted to write more prescriptions even when he was told that I don't and won't take addictive drugs.
