As a member of our OHC physician team, Dr. Pratt has full access to the OHC Clinical Trial research program.

We encourage our patients to discuss all of their healthcare options — including Clinical Trial research programs — with their doctor.

The following are recent reviews provided by actual OHC patients:

"I have great respect for Dr. Pratt and truly appreciate his interest in my well-being."

"I recently changed oncologists looking for a new treatment option. He told me about Dr. Pratt and said he would make the referral. Dr. Pratt's office contacted me the next morning, and within 36 hours of leaving the oncologist, I was seeing Dr. Pratt. Dr. Pratt presented the radiation surgery treatment in a power point format on his computer. This made understanding the procedure thorough, easy and comfortable for me and my husband. It also allowed for any questions to be explained and answered. My husband and I felt reassured and fully informed. Dr. Pratt did not rush the appointment - he spent as much time with me as I felt I needed. Dr. Pratt was completely honest with me about my medical condition - risks involved and possible negative outcomes - yet he was hopeful, and I felt he was truly invested in fighting this battle with me. I am truly thankful to have come under his care."

" I am very glad that I got to Dr. Pratt. He is the best. Thanks to him and all his co-workers. He is a 25 on a scale of 1 to 10. You are treated like a person, and not like a money gain."
