Dr. Parra is my second Oncologist and I highly recommend him. (I wish I started my Chemo with him). He took an active role in bringing me back to health. Before I met him my quality of life was awful and considered either suicide or stopping treatment all together. Dr. Parra changed my Chemo and now I feel much better. I look forward to a complete recovery. His PA has been a great help as well.

Dr. Parra is a joke. My brother is a colorectal patient. Dr. Para told him that he did not need debulking surgery but that it was my brother's decision. 16 tumors were found and an illestomy was required. This surprise was most likely due to Dr. Parra using CT with contrast instead of PET scans for monitoring. PET scan was finally done at the request of another physician. Results were given to my brother via Facetime. It was not good news. Today at my brother's appointment, Dr. Parra could not be bothered to be there, he saw the PA. PLEASE do not use this physician!

Friends recommended Dr. Parra for GIST cancer. We are hugely grateful that they led us to Dr. Parra, who spent a lot of time with us and answered every question that we asked with kindness, empathy, and words we could understand. Dr. Parra had studied my husband’s case thoroughly and waisted no time giving us the complete picture of what life was going to be like. He asked the best questions of my husband. We thought that his cancer was incurable but Dr. Parra assured us that our GIST was curable. He filled us with hope. The entire staff here is hugely helpful and kind.

I have been a patient of Dr. Parra's since Sept 2017. His compassion is amazing. His professionalism and knowledge are outstanding. I feel blessed to be a patient of his. I have recommended him to many friends and family members, even those who live many states away. I am that confident in him.
