Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parentis "Our practice philosophy is to deliver fellowship trained orthopedic care in a very personalized fashion. We are a small 2 physician practice that takes pride in providing individualized care to each patient. We are still able to treat each patient with time and consideration because we are not like most of the other 'big box' practices that have too many physicians and too much overhead. We retain all the good aspects of traditional physician care while still providing the most up to date orthopaedic procedures. "

Badly torn rotator cuff. At age 63 was not sure how effective surgery would be. Dr. Parentis repaired the damage and rehab at the WNY Knee Center was wonderful. 7 Months later almost back to normal.

Dr Parentis is very good. I just had knee replacement and everything is going well. He takes his time with you and answers all questions, even ones I don't think to ask. I highly recommend him.
