If standard size door rough opening, probably about $250-300 bare minimum with a box store prefinished prehung door - reusing doorknob/lockset. More commonly $300 range - more of course if fancier door, and $100-200 more typically above that if needs finishing (staining or painting) so can quickly get inot the $500-600 range total cost in that case.

If able to use off-the-shelf store prehung door (comes prehung with hinges in the frame, no lockset but predrilled for it), almost easier than significant repair of chewed up frame or door.

If rough opening is signficantly oversized or is at all undersized (more than a fraction of an inch under) then additional carpentry costs to resize the opening forst.

Couple of previous related questions with answers FYI - note each is a slighly different case, as is yours -

Search the List for someone to do this sort of work - of course Doors though many door companies will not do just one normally. Otherwise Handyman, or Carpenter - Woodworking if needs good-quality staining or any special detail work as opposed to just normal painting or just installing a prefinished door.
