Dr Parent is extremely attentive when it comes to discussing the heart. My husband and I both feel very comfortable when we visit with him and that his intelligent knowledge in his field is impeccable! We have already highly recommended him to people looking for a respectable and personable cardiologist who cares about what he does and about the people. DEFINITELY 5 STARS!!! If you have heart issues, then Dr Parent is the cardiologist you want on your side!!
