Absolutely amazing physician!!! He sincerely cares on a personal level. He spent an hour in the room with me explaining every detail of my condition thoroughly. Wouldn’t recommend any other cardiologist but this guy!

My husband and I have both been treated by Dr. Parente for at least 10 years. Dr. Parente and his staff have always been great and as far as I am concerned, he pretty much saved my husband's life by properly diagnosing his congestive heart failure a number of years ago, after he was misdiagnosed by another doctor. Dr.Parente always spends time explaining whatever health issues or tests are going on at that time, and never just rushes us out. He is an excellent caring doctor.

Horrible doctor. He is/was my mother's health care provider and she called him and told him her legs were swelling. He was upset because my mother's PCP had changed her meds a bit. He told his nurse to call my 82-year-old mother and tell her TO GO TO HER PCP AND HAVE HER change the prescriptions back. That was Friday afternoon! By Monday morning, my mom had severe pneumonia and she is currently in the hospital. I believe this wouldn't have happened if Parente wasn't on a power trip.
