Ratings for Dr. Luciana Parlea
I think there may be some mixup as they are to Dr. Parlea's in town this one is the Endocrinologist the other I believe is a family doctor. The reason I know there's a mixup is in my five years as a patient of Dr. Parlea's I've never waited more than 10-15minutes. So I don't want people looking into Dr. Parlea at the endocrinologist to think these negative things are about her. Besides being on time she is extraordinarily helpful , caring and patient. I've been a patient over five years and she originally saw me for my osteoporosis and menopause at 32 but as other issues have come up she has always taking the time to look into them do tests or suggest things that I could do even if they may not necessarily be within her specialty. I am a narcoleptic as well and told her how lately I was getting worse and sleeping more and more often and instead of pushing me back to my sleep doctor or thing I'm only here to deal with your bone density she listened realized it was something affecting my life and offered to do a test that could give me some answers. She really is a great doctor. Nelly at the front desk is warm and kind and always willing to help out when she can. Sara
I love this doctor! She has been our family doctor for over 10 years and not once has she let us down! The only negative aspect is the waiting time, which can make you go crazy. She is nice and understanding and listens! She send me to the best specialist that take me in faster than any other specialists. She has been a fantastic doctor so far
Dr Parlea did not listen to what I had to say; I could read the notes she had taken on the computer screen--they contradicted what I had just told her. I felt dismissed, but assumed that the communication failure was my fault. However, the sense of being dismissed was intensified when I asked what steps I could take to ameliorate my symptoms as a lower-income patient without insurance (prescriptions for my chronic condition being completely out of reach): instead of offering some ideas or advice, she told me to come back "when you are ready to look after your condition." I was very poor for two years, and that was one of the worst moments of it. I had to go to work immediately after the appointment, and I spent the whole bus ride (unsuccessfully) trying not to cry. She's probably OK if you have insurance.
Hard to say whether or not she has any knowledge. She's too rude to find out. Can't get out of her office fast enough. Calling the office is like calling a radio station for a contest. Good luck. But receptionist is very nice if you're lucky enough to get through.
Staff never answer phone and won't answer questions or forward concerns to Parlea. Parlea not helpful , always in a hurry, poor knowledge and pretty much wants appointment over as fast a possible. Does not want to review thoroughly blood test results nor offer explanation or answers.
I am very happy that I am her patient I have not experienced any of the negative things posted on the site I have only found her to be extremely kind and caring and understanding And I found that her staff did an exceptional work Ray G
Dr. Parlea has been a wonderful doctor to me. She takes the time to make sure everything is going the way it should. Reviews the different options with you and genuinely seems to care. I have nothing but good things to say about her and would definitely recommend!
Had an amazing experience! I went to her with sort of an embarrassing physiological issue, and she took care of it right there. She was gently, caring, and very attentive. When we were done, both doctor and patient were very satisfied. She seems serious, but wow... knows what to do! - Jim
