In June of 2012, Dr. Pratt was involved in a mission in Amman Jordan that was sponsored by Operation Smile UAE, treating primarily cleft lip and palates as well as other facial deformities.
During the week, more than 70 patients were treated, mostly from Jordan and Palestine.
The procedures were performed at the new public hospital, Prince Hussain Bin Abdullah II Hospital, with Operation Smile importing much of the equipment needed, such as anesthesia machines and other important medical instruments.
Doctors and nurses from all around the world participated in the week-long mission. Surgeries were performed from early in the morning until late in the day.
On the first day, over 200 patients were screened by the doctors, and, unfortunately, the majority had to be turned away, emphasizing the continued need for such missions.
Although the mission was primarily aimed at the treatment of children ranging in age from 6 months to 5 years old, many others were treated as well; some people required the revision of surgery performed in the past, and a few were treated for other problems, such as burns, large growths and hand problems.
A quote from Dr. Pratt when he returned from the mission sums it all up: “This trip was an amazing experience, which re-confirmed to me the original reason I elected medicine as a career, namely to care for people in need.”
Dr. Pratt hopes to be involved in more missions like this in the future and has encouraged his children to volunteer their time as well to this wonderful organization.

Over 1,400 doctors, nurses, and physician assistants in the Seattle metropolitan area participated in our 2014 survey, for which we asked, “If you or a loved one needed medical care, whom would you choose?” Of the nearly 13,000 nominations we received, the top 15 percent of practitioners were considered as semifinalists for the 2014 Top Doctors and Nurses list.
We invited an anonymous advisory panel of administrators, doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants from local hospitals, clinics, private practices, and associations to vet all nominations and further authenticate the results. The panel’s criteria to select the finalists included a provider’s years of experience and competency within his or her specialty, rapport with patients, including patient satisfaction and compliance with care recommendations, and ability to work effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best care for patients. The panel also sought to adequately represent smaller private practices, which tend to encounter fewer colleagues on a day-to-day basis than their peers at large hospital systems.
