Very poor treatment by the office’s Billing department. Inconsiderate personnel who put monetary before a patient’health especially when the patient hasn’t health and insurance and confirmed that the upfront dollars would be paid once billed.

I'm not sure how to answer this question. Dr Paraskos, herself, was great. But, dealing with her office staff and office setup is VERY FRUSTRATING to say the least. So much so, that my frustrations with them outweighed the positive experience I had with her unfortunately.

Recomiendo la Dr. Parasko por sus conocimiento, su pasiencia con el paciente , explicandole todo con claridad, le gusta investigar primero antes de someter una cirujia, el equipo que trabaja con ella es amable, y responsable.

Even though Dr. Paraskos is young by all standards, she is one of those old school doctors who takes there time with patients to explain everything. She is exceptionally caring and goes out of her way to ensure that her patients are taken care of.
