Simply put, Doctor Parra saved my wifes life, and saved 95 percent of her right kidney during the process. This was no easy task since she had two separate tumors in the one kidney. A previous doctor stated the situation as "grave". On our first visit, Doctor Parra stated she was not going to die from kidney cancer, and that she would be around for many years. Through his expertise, and the grace of God, the operation was a total success. I/We highly recommend Doctor Parra and his staff.
