Dr. Todd Parnes, DO
I am a well established otolaryngologist in the Palm Beach area with over 17 years experience. I believe that medicine is not just about giving medication but about listening to the patient and really 'seeing' what is going on. I have a great staff - most have been with me over 7 years. We all try to make the experience of coming to our office as pleasant as possible. I give each of my patients the time they deserve and need and am available by phone almost 24 hours a day. All my patients know that. I am a graduate of the University of Fl and went to medical school in Kansas. I am board certified in otolaryngology as well as Facial Plastic surgery. I have served as the surgical chair at Bethesda memorial Hospital several times. I am a distinguished member of the American Board of General Surgery as well as Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery. I was honored with a Distinguished Surgeons award in both 2007 and 2015. I enjoy going to my sons' baseball games and boating in the little free time I have. I have a beautiful wife of almost 20 years and 2 great sons. I can say I actually love what I do and am very blessed to be able to help people daily.

I came to see Dr Parnes as a follow up for my rhinoplasty. I highly recommend Dr Parnes for his exceptional care and expertise. His staff is also very helpful and professional and a beautiful office. A relief so many bad experiences with doctors lately.

My daughter took off from work early to go to her appointment with Dr Parnes which was made over 2 weeks prior only to find out by the receptionist that they refuse to see her. They surprised her with a large deductible fee and refused any arrangements. My daughter is a singer and is in pain needing her vocal chords checked and they refused to see her. Unbelievably greedy and obviously not in it for care but for $$$ only!

He really listens to you when you have a problem and is no the type of dr. to just give a medicine and send you on your way. Office is super clean and the staff has been there forever--say a lot about the whole group
Boynton Beach, FL |
Successful surgery for my deviated septum. I feel much better. Thank you The only exception to this is that the office (Doctor Parnes) charges an office visit also for a POST OPERATION. Normally there should be at a minimum 2 POST Op visits without office charges. It has been my experience that all Post Op's FEES are always included in the after Operation/Surgery. Gave 4 Star due to the ADDITIONAL POST OP OFFICE VISIT CHARGES WHICH I DID NOT AGREE.

Had surgery with Dr Parnes two years ago for a deviated septum and to fix my crooked nose. 3 months after the surgery I could not feel my face. Dr Parnes would not respond to email or phone calls. After paying THOUSANDS for the surgery he would ONLY speak to me if I came into the office and pay the office fee. Two years later I call again as I simply can not breath. I can not feel the left side of my face. Same thing 2 years later- will only see me if I pay $250 office fee. UNETHICAL

The best ENT in south Florida !!
Boynton Beach, FL |
This visit was not helpful or informative. He was uninterested towards my issue and most of his responses were I don't know. I did not complain of any pain symptoms or ask for any prescriptions and he kept insisting he wasn't going to write any prescriptions.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
Sifted through all the noise from previous practioners to get to the root of the problem. Looked at all the available data that other practioners didn't take the time to look at. Professional and thorough. Great staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Parnes and his hard working staff.
Dr. Parnes is an absolutely amazing doctor and surgeon. He helped me when I had almost given up hope of ever feeling good again. He really knows his stuff and cares about his patients. The staff is always so nice as well! Highly recommend him.
in Wellington, Florida |
Dr. Parnes is amazing, he is very knowledgeable in many medical areas not just ENT. He was and is the only doctor that did something when everyone didn't know what to do and did not care that I was suffering. This doctor literally saved my life, he listens, I mean really listens and is very honest. He kept calling other doctors to get me in to see them sooner and to stress how severe and urgent my condition was. He is sympathetic, kind and has no problem explaining things.
in Lake worth fl |
Dr Parnes is the best!! He is extremely knowledgeable compassionate and very understanding. He takes his time with you and makes sure you fully understand your problem. He does everything he can to do what is best for you before he has to do surgery. Dr Parnes I trust fully he is best!!!!!
