I cannot still believe that there are Doctors like this around ! He actually was my mother in laws Doctor and the care that he gave to her was outstanding!! When myself or my husband called to speak with him about my MIL he would actually get on the telephone. Have you ever heard of a Doctor that does that? Outstanding.

I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. I have been to his office a number of times. The office staff is very nice. I have to say, that my quickest appointment, from parking to driving away, was approximately 15-minutes. So, if you're looking for a jiffy, look no further; if you don't have a problem spending your co-pay in 10-minutes or less, Dr Parrotta is your guy. If you actually want a doctor to examine you and tell you his medical opinion, that he spent 8-years learning in medical school, keep searching. You will get more information from you computer, than you ever will from this man.He never reads my chart. He, verbatim, says the same exact things at all of my visits, no matter what my issue happens to be. He takes my blood; writes my prescription and sends me on my, 10-minutes or less, way.
