Terrible pressured me into doing unnecessary and additional surgery when there was no need too. I had the surgery was hospitalized with an infection on multiple rounds of antibiotics and never saw Dr Parentis for follow up visits only PA's. There was not one sink in the exam rooms for hand washing. I need additional extensive on an area of my foot that I didn?t have one problem with now in major chronic pain and need surgery and months of recuperation time.

Dr. Parentis was very thorough with his explanation and what to expect pre and post surgery. His staff members are friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. The facility is great and I look forward to PT sessions. At this point, I am seven weeks post ACL reconstruction surgery and couldn't give a better recommendation. If my other ACL goes, I'm coming back here.
