Was referred to Dr. Para for diaphragm hernia repair and from the moment I met with him and his staff I felt comfortable. His patient care and bedside manners are great, his staff working with him are all very pleasant people. Everything he does he discusses and explains to the patient. He is a very good listener and takes the time to get to know his patients. So far he is the only surgeon I have met that made me feel comfortable by his open discussion with me about my care.

I will recommend Dr. Daniel Para I had two surgeries thru him and I haven't have any complications he knows what his doing as well as his personal thank you very much

Dr Para is a very kind, gentle, and caring Dr. I was admitted through the ER for a bad infection in my gallbladder that needed to be removed and felt I was honestly on my death bed. Very scared feeling!! Dr Para admitted me, came into my room a few times to explain every detail to me making certain I understood the befores, during, and after effects and processes! I absolutely love this Dr. Thank you Dr Para!! Also, thank you for tucking my wounds gently and not leaving ugly marks on my body. TA

I hope that other women who have suffered like me for over 40 years will seek the help to resolve their digestion problems without medication and other methods that do very little to help with your quality of life. At 64, I am feeling better than I did in my 20's. The first meeting with Dr. Para reassured me he could fix my problem. I got my hope back and not a hand full of meds. I want to urge anyone wanting their life back to call Dr. Para immediately.

Dr Para is a excellent doctor and surgeon. He listens to your medical history and follows up with the necessary tests before he does your surgery. If surgery is needed. If you need to have a surgeon for any reason Dr Para in my opinion is the best.

Dr. Para is great. - just wish he'd go to hospital other than St. Luke's Medical Center.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr Para is amazing!!! My scars are practically invisible! He truly cares about his patients. He takes the time to listen and he thoroughly explains the procedure. Before the procedure he makes sure that you understand all of the risks, possible side effects, and benefits to the procedure you're having done.
