Dr. Parazin changed my life with his talented surgical hands. He has had done two of my spine surgeries and allowed me to regain my mobility and freed me from pain.

Had a laminectomy performed and came out of the surgery with foot drop and in more pain than prior to surgery. Am now facing a second surgery four months after the first surgery. Do not feel that the doctor's PA paid any attention to me when I was telling him that something was wrong.
