Patient Reviews

Family recommended!

My son had a fracture and he was treated extremely well. I would definitely have friends / family come here. Thank you all so much! ? JB Arlington, TX

The only Orthopedic doctor we use...

Dr Bruce Prager is an awesome doctor. He is very caring and concerned for his patients. He went above and beyond my expectations. He saw to it that I received immediate care for the pain I was in. He also referred me to a neck surgeon and saw to it that I was scheduled for surgery quickly. After all of that he even called to check on me. What a GREAT doctor he is. I would recommend him to anyone. He has performed surgery on my husband and son with very successful results. CB Arlington, TX

The best ortho doc in Arlington

Dr. Bruce Prager and I first met when I was having extreme pain in my right shoulder. It was eventually surgically repaired by Dr. Prager; though painful the doctor prepared me for each step of the healing process. It eventually was fully successfully healed. After about a year and a half later I had some issues occur on my left shoulder, it too with the doctorís surgical experience, after care and prescribed therapy it also fully recovered and went back to all my normal activities of swimming and weight training. Dr. Prager has helped my wife and son as well for which Iím very grateful for his caring and kind orthopedic experience. My whole family would share our wonderful experiences with others about how pleased we were with our overall experience with Dr Prager and his staff at Orthopedic Center of Arlington.
