Ratings for Dr. Luciana Parlea
As a type 1 diabetic I would go to no other Endocronologist in this city! She has helped me transform my A1C to the lowest it’s been in years and has supported me to start and thrive on the pump this year. She is very smart, punctual, and knowledgeable. Also, shoutout to Nellie who is the nicest receptionist!
She is a very smart and in her speciality she's taking the best decisions. She's not chatty because she is assessing your disease and you as a patient and I appreciate that . I rather have a good doctor than a smiling not helpful physician. I wish that all the doctors would be up to latest medical news and the real medicine they should practice, like this doctor.
Dr. Parlea has been my Endocrinologist for over 1 year and has been awesome. She is very knowledgable and never overlooks any symptoms. She always sends me for lots of tests just to ensure we know exactly what's going on. Because of her, my Thyroid Cancer was caught right away and I was in for surgery in no time at all with an amazing surgeon. Her post surgery follow up has been great and I would happily recommend her to anyone looking for an Endocrinologist in KW. As with any specialist, it takes a few months to get an appointment but I have no real complaints about it.
Another review mentioned that there is also a family doctor by the same name, and that the negative reviews here seem to be in reference to that person. No, this Dr Parlea is NOT a family doctor, she is an endocrinologist. When I arrive on time, the wait is under five minutes. She goes out of her way to fully understand the overall health of her patients, which in my case included meant understanding a rare genetic disorder I have, doing work on her own time to learn about it, understand what it means in terms of cancer risk factors, and use this knowledge to guide treatment options. This is not the kind of care I have had with any other doctor, the actively going and learning to understand her patients unique and individual circumstances. My only complaint is her receptionist has an accent and I have an auditory processing disorder, so I can't actually make out any of her voicemails. Her accent isn't bad, its just the combination of auditory processing disorder, not being able to see a face when listening, and the general problem of auditory information always being lost in a phone call. Lately I have been having an extremely hard time getting, and so I am mildly concerned something may have happened on her end.
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
