Every treatment in Dr. Parhiscar's office has been a positive one. I see him for aesthetic procedures and always love my results. He is very approachable and has empathy, not to mention his training and skill! I've referred multiple people to him because I'm so impressed with his skill.

I had a minor in office procedure done. Everything was thoroughly explained before he began the procedure. Healing was quick with exceptional results and follow up care.
