I am a rather new patient to urology and have been dealing with a disorder that is rare, I am also seeing a urologist at UAB. My disorder still has not been confirmed. However, when I saw doctor Parra he was very quick to answer questions and literally once was walking out the door when I was still talking (keep in mind any appointment I had was no longer than 10 min or so). I had only seen Dr. Parra a few times before he had to perform a kidney stone removal. He did a good job with the removal, but was extremely unprofessional when I came in to get the stent removed. He was asked by my doctor, at UAB, to go into my kidney and look at the stones in my kidneys to help confirm my disorder. When I got to the appointment I literally asked him one question about what he saw in my kidneys and he told me that I was a very challenging patient. I was a little confused, thinking that he meant I was challenging because of my condition, but then I asked what do you mean I am challenging? His response was that I ask too many questions! I was blown away! Here I am a 30 year old, being diagnosed with a rare disorder and I am challenging because I am asking questions about my health? My husband and I could not believe that he said this, and he continued to repeat that I was challenging throughout our discussion even saying his whole staff and himself believe I am challenging. I will never be seen by a doctor that tells me I ask too many questions about my health, I feel that is our right as patients. I am a very laid back person and get along easily with anyone. However, I will advocate for myself and ASK questions about my health. I would not recommend him or even The Woodlands to anyone. They want to get you in and out and do not have time for your questions. They want to tell you everything and not listen to your concerns or answer questions.
Short and sweet all I wanna say is Thank you Dr.Parra for making me well, his bedside is exceptional, he has a way of explaining medical procedures that i needed done that was easily understood so I knew exactly what would be going on.Dr.Parra and his staff at Woodlands Medical were in all probably the nicest, most outgoing, most understanding, friendlist and caring team of medical proffesional staff.I'm fortunate to have Dr.Parra and his staff at Woodlands Medical for urilogical needs.I would recommend Woolands Medical Urologist Dr.Parra and his team to anyone who is having or had kidney problems that needed to be followed up my on.
I'm just beginning with Dr. Parra but thus far I have a positive impression of him and my encounters with him and his office staff have been very good. One negative was with a scheduler at the end of my first appointment but she was young and inexperienced and was not professional in her interactions with me. His nursing staff are very helpful on the telephone.
