Patient Comments (1)
in Bonita, CA |
I went to see Dr. Parente about three growths on my body - two on my right arm and one on my back. One of the growths on my arm has density and was painful upon touch. I asked the doctor is she could remove it. She refused and laughed at me, then asked me what type of insurance I had. She told me she doesn't do those type of procedures, even though her biography said she did. It was a total waste of time. I do not recommend this physician.
