Dr. Parnes is the best ENT around. I had a salivary gland tumor removed in 2000 and he did a superb job. I go for check-ups every 6 months and very little wait time. Friendly staff.

Dr. Parnes has horrible communication skills. I had a cyst in my jaw, he did a surgery to remove but did remove half of it.. I had to do the surgery over.Thats when I found that he made me go through a surgeru for no reason. The only good thing he did was refer me to a good oral surgeon. Who performed the surgery perfectly..
