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!!

Dr Parent took special care to explain to my kids what was happening with me the first time. He has a calming, reassuring approach and he knows what he is doing. The second time, he was a site for sore eyes waiting for me in the cath lab. Thank you for saving my life Dr Parent!
