  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great doc, but terrible staff

Dr. Paradela is wonderful, but his office staff is so disorganized they don't know which way is up. They are all very nice, but they don't know what they are doing (most of them). Half the time their office phones will give you a busy tone for hours. The office staff will be missing from the front for 20 to 30 minutes at a time so you have to stand there and wait to even be checked in. The wait time is also ridiculous. We have had to wait in the waiting room to see Dr. Paradela for two hours before. If you're going to see Dr. Paradela it is much better to schedule a morning appointment to avoid such long wait times; plus, when you're scheduled to see him after lunch and wait two hours you end up getting caught in Athens afternoon traffic. Again, Dr. Paradela is a wonderful doctor who knows what he is talking about. He stays up to date with the latest and greatest. He also has the patience of a saint needed to deal with elderly patients. If he wasn't such a great doctor with a terrible staff, I wouldn't mind going.
