Doctor Parambi is straight up very knowledgeable in in field of medicine . I was impressed with how well informed she was with the pharms and supplements used in the treatment of conditions related to her field . Also the effects of mixing medications and supplements . Some might her "bedside manner " as rude , but she is passionate about what she does and is genuine about her concern for her patients . If you are looking for warm and fuzzy , move on . I'm a bit gruffy, so I like her style.

One word and that is atrocious! She is the rudest most unprofessional doctor that I have ever seen. She is very condescending and has no concern for you as a patient. I will never waste my time with her again and neither should you!

I felt she was rude, has a terrible bed side manor, and, to tell a patient about results of testing through a rude letter is very unprofessional.

I do not feel she listens and will say one thing but do another. She does not seem concerned about symptoms.

The Doctor, although not very friendly or overly concerned about you as an individual, seems quite knowledgeable. in her field. The staff [nursing and office] is atrocious! Not knowledgeable in their field, does not communicate with patients, completely misinformed, uncaring, rude (to the patients and each other), arrogant, condescending, unprofessional and show no compassion whatsoever. To the point of malpractice.

She's very rude and I hate how I felt like she was talking down to me. I WOULD NOT suggest scheduling an appointment with her. You'd be better off to drive a couple hours to see a different endocrinologist if you need one. If seeing her was the only way I could get my insulin, I'd need to go make plans for my funeral.

Nothing but the most awful experiences. Patient care is subpar. It's a shame this is the only endocrinologist on the Eastern Shore. It's worth the drive to Baltimore or Hampton Roads or Norfolk to go to any other Doctor. The nurse Stacey is unprofessional and uncaring and is not willing to do her job. The receptionists are rude and unfriendly.
