dr. parisot has been my primary care physician for 8 plus years. he is wonderful in every way......a listener,.thorough, remembers me and my multitude of "issues", and follows up PERSONALLY (so rare in these days of fast medicine). referrals to specialists and drug refill requests are always prompt. his office staff is also wonderful. i will not change doctors!
I'm a 64 year old woman who's in overall good physical health and rarely gets headaches--and who went to see Dr. Parisot primarily because of a severe headache that had lasted since the night before, some recent incidents of memory lapses, and a concerns that those things might be warning sigs of a stroke or some other brain-related difficulty since there's a family history of strokes and I have a sister whose brain scan showed evidence of many little black spots, most probably due to lack of blood to the brain. Dr. Parisot did a number of physical tests and ordered an MRI due to the sudden onset of the headache and the family history, but he went far beyond that. He took time and had the empathy and insight to ask a lot of relevant questions, listen, and realize a possible relationship between my physical concerns vis-a-vis other things going on in my life--things that other doctors might have missed. First, he asked a lot of questions re: my physical and mental concerns; and as he did various physical tests, told me what they showed, which in my case was good. In addition to that, however, after I told him that despite the fact that I normally did well in studying for tests, I'd really been having a hard time remembering what I needed to know for a recent test in Hebrew, he responded, "You're studying Hebrew?! Hebrew is really hard. There's no way you could be beginning to get dementia or Alzheimers and do THAT." -- Many doctors mighthaverealized that a person couldln't be beginning to get either of those braindifficulties and study a foreign language, but many might NOT know how hard Hebrew is to learn, and thus be able to reassure a patient that it might not be that unusual for a person who normally does well in learning tasks to still have difficulty learning that particular subject. Third, when I mentioned that part of the reason that I thought this class had been so hard for me was that, while I was taking the begining level class in the subject, I missed some things due to the deaths of three significant people in my life within a period of 6 months, he immediately responded, "You've had some big blows." I appreciated his empathy, and thus felt comfortable replying that there'd been some other losses in my life since then as well. It was that and other communications between us caused me to realize the possibility of a connection between my forgetfulness in a number of different areas lately vis-a-vis the combined effect of emotional losses plus mental overload due to studying for a test in a difficult subject area. At the same time, however, Dr. Parisot validated my concern re: the possibility of a stroke or some other physical cause for the headache, especially given the family history, and thus ordered the MRI to rule out either that or even a tumor In addition to a blood test and ordering an MRI to see if there might be any physicaal component to what I'd been recently experiencing, however, he also advised a 6-week break from studying and taking some time to just relax for awhile. In summary, Dr. Parisot not only took the time to find out what was happening with me memory-wise, physically, and interms of family history, he also took the time to hear and evaluate possible relationships between those three things and other things that have been going on in my life. At the same time, he validated my wanting to make sure the headache and memory lapses weren't being caused by stroke-related factors. I appreciated Dr. Parisot's knowledge, understanding, and insight in each of those areas while attempting to ascer-tain what might be contributing to what I'd been experiening lately, and would reommend him to others.
