What to Expect

Prior to your first consultation with Dr. Parra, you will meet with the nursing staff to review your medical history. During your consultation, you will thoroughly discuss your medical history and current medical concerns with Dr. Parra. Depending on your diagnosis, Dr. Parra may order additional tests, such as a CT scan, MRI, or blood work. Upon diagnosis, you will be educated about different treatment options. If Dr. Parra feels that surgery is necessary, our scheduling team will coordinate with you in order to schedule surgery. Prior to surgery, our nursing staff will contact you to review procedure instructions and give you information regarding post-operative care. After surgery, you will visit Dr. Parra’s office periodically until your medical condition and health concerns have been completely resolved.
