I can't recommend him enough, he's done marvels for me and my health. Dr. Parra is by far the most understanding, caring, and gentle doctor I've ever met.

Will prescribe very high Dosages of PPI and make you hooked. Do not follow this doctors advise! Additionally you will get no facetime with him and his staff will not follow up or answer the phone, showing no care after he has already made you dependant on pharmaceutical pills.

Had an excellent experience with Dr. Parra. Not only is he knowledgeable, he is very kind and takes the time to answer any questions and concerns.

Dr Parra performed my colonoscopy a couple of yrs back; 3 polyps were removed yet I felt nothing throughout the whole procedure & nothing after. - No pain nor complications. Honestly, the worse was drinking all that fluid prior to the procedure. I expected to feel some discomfort after the fact but it's as if it never happened. Of course I'm going to continue to recommend Dr Parra to all who need his expertise because his hands must be blessed. If I needed it again, Dr Parra is my choice.
