I have been going to Dr. Parente for years. I have had many different problems from too much sun and other things. She has done many different surgeries and procedures on me and in my opinion has probably saved my life. She is by far the best dermatologist I have ever had. She is caring, goes to great lengths to explain procedures and cures to me. She is simply the best.

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.
