“My ACL surgery was a huge scare to me. However, Dr. Prato comforted me throughout the entire process. He answered all my questions and seemed very patient and gave as much as he could into the process as I was willing to give myself. He informed me of all the benefits and negatives of the process I would undergo. He gave me my choices and let me decide things at my own pace. He did his part and told me how to do mine to the best of my ability. I am now 9 months out and my leg is feeling amazing. I would definitely recommend Dr. Prato to any friend who suffered the same experience. He's a great doctor. All you have to do is listen.”
