in Myrtle Beach, SC |
Dr. Parnell is excellent in diagnosing my issues and explained in detail what I may encounter. She did have to refer me to another physician, but will be able to provide me the care I need within the scope of her practice. I found her personable, compassionate and precise. I'm an R.N., who moved to the area several years ago. My visit with her was what I expected and I'm happy that I found her.

I am hoping she was just having a bad disconnected day the other day...I felt like she was not listening to me and my husband and I found her somewhat abrupt. I generally have not felt like this with her, will see how my next appt works out.
