I recently had a lump that increased in size on my breast and went to see Dr Paragi to look at it and schedule a biopsy. They have an awesome team at St Barnabas. Not only did the office manager Natalie Simone go out of her way to schedule an immediate appointment between patients for me but also the Dr's assistant Renal Patel was just great in making me feel comfortable. Speaking about comfortable, Dr Paragi totally put me at ease and explained what was going on, the process and a detailed diagram of what my situation was and what they were looking to do. He was amazing in easing my fears and explaining what my options were. I totally would recommend him and the St Barnabas team to any one who needed an outstanding Surgen Many Thx Sandra

My wife had went in for a simple gallbladder removal and never came out alive. The nurses were so kind to me when it happened but it wasn't until now that I realized everything. Before she went into the operating room the nurses seemed surprised that we were letting Doctor Paragi operate on her. They kept asking how we ended up with him and seemed surprised. After my dear wife's passing, I found out that Doctor Paragi has had many many deaths and serious complications. So many in fact that the state had investigated him and the hospital has since removed him. Please stay away from this man. He took away the only woman I ever loved.

To begin with, I am amazed that Dr. Paragi is still permitted to practice. He has his experience listed as 18 yrs yet he graduated from his residency less than 6 years ago. He works for St Barnabus and has their employes directing patients to him to keep him busy. My poor wife was operated on by him after being referred by Jen- another hospital employee. After she developed a leak she was sent to the ICU where THREE other patients of Dr Paragi were also dying from his errors. I am shocked that he still works for the hospital and appalled that they continue to send him patients given his very very poor track record. Please ask around before seeing this man. Had we known I would have forced my dearly departed wife to go elsewhere

Office visit takes time,but worth the wait. If you go to him,he is very thorough in pre testing before surgery.he makes sure you are healthy enough for surgery. He is very nice. He is a great surgeon. When I needed pain medicine,he was fast to respond. My recovery was fast.if you listen to his directions,you will succeed. I would say,use Dr. Paragi...great follow up. He answers all questions. Office staff is caring and kind..very busy office. They are efficient to make sure all is in order to send to insurance for surgery approval.
