Dr. Para is a stellar doctor! He is one of those rare physicians that takes the time to really get to know you. I choose my doctors carefully. If they arenot wonderful, I keep looking until I find a great one. Most doctors are given 15-minutes and they are on to the next room. That is not my kind of doctor. I choose only those that actually engage with me.
