What People Say About Dr. Michael Parentis, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have been a patient of Dr. Parentis for several years and all I can say is "Thank You!" I have a wonderful quality of life now that Dr. Parentis has repaired both rotator cuff's (which were so bad I could hardly lift or lower my arms), he also repaired the meniscus in my left knee and just months ago did a full right knee replacement. Without his expertise I wouldn't even be able to work and now I am almost pain free! I should mention how amazing his entire staff is also! From the ladies at the front desk to the xray technicians to the physical therapy staff who are not only helpful and friendly but extremely knowledgeable. I just doesn't get better than the care at Dr. Parentis's office.

I have been a patient of Dr. Parentis for over 12 years. I have had both of my knees replaced by him and the results are amazing. He truly cares about his patients and their family. The office staff are always very helpful and courteous. I wouldn't go to any other orthopedic doctor or office. They treat you like family. Thank you!

I went to Dr. Parentis after having been treated by another doctor for an injury to my right ankle following a car accident. At the time I was treated for a broken ankle, however, it turned out that I had also crushed my heel. Dr. Parentis did a subtalar fusion on my right ankle 6 months ago and I can't say enough good things about him. He is personable, easy to talk to, explains things so that you can understand. Even though it will still take quite a while before I am without pain when walking and doing normal activities, I have come a long way and have only Dr. Parentis to thank for this. He is a very special person and I owe a lot to him. So if you ever need an orthopedist, he is the best.

My experience with Dr Parentis has been very good , I first saw him with a knee issue and he cleaned up my torn meniscus . Then we moved to my torn rotator cuff , I have been back to work for almost 3 months and very satisfied with my repair and my progress . He explained everything about my surgeries and recovery that I needed . Staff from the front desk to the PT department and out the door were very helpful and kind .
