First visit

I didn't even see the doctor. Just a nurse going back and forth with messages from him at this initial visit.

Poor Doctor/Patient Interaction

I was displeased with this doctor as he was condescending and seemed to be trying to impress his resident with snarky remarks during my visit. The resident chuckled when I had to bend over during the physical exam and I felt like I was being looked at in an inappropriate way. Overall, I was not impressed with the doctor 's attitude or approach to my care. Hopefully other patients will have better experiences.

Beyond wonderful

Dr. Parnell is great and his staff is exceptional. My favorite thing is he doesn't rush you into surgery. He tries everything else first.
