We could not asked for a more caring, loving physician for my husband & daughter while in Burnsville Ridges Hospital. When I first met Dr. Parens, in the emergency room, he seemed abrupt & direct, knowing my daughter was critically/terminally ill . His focus was only on my daughter, as it should be. When he saw them after admission, he was caring, compassionate, took time to talk with us to answer questions. I would recommend Dr Parens to anyone, anytime, anywhere. He is truly a gifted doctor.
