Specialties

Dr. Stephen P Prater has the following 2 specialties

  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

I'm Complicated

Dr Prater didn't give up and worked until we figured out what was causing my symptoms. Very supportive of alternative treatments due to bad reactions to medications. I LOVE DR PRATER and highly recommend him.

Patient

It is not often that one finds a doctor who is an expert in his field, possesses a tremendous bedside manor, and eminates a God given gift of sincerety and caring of which I am not sure he is aware. He involves the patient in decision making. I can honestly attribute his diagnostic ability and subsequent treatment/procedures to sustaining life, mine included. His profile is impressive, however, his practical use and abilities are exemplary. His staff is more than courteous. All are prompt, spend time and are great with follow up. Dr. Prater exudes professionalism and I would recommend him to all in need!
