My visit with Dr. Paranada was at an urgent referral and she was able to accommodate me and really was very good at explaining to me what was going on, what tests would need to probably be done and what regimen of medication that I may be started on after she reviews the lab tests, talks to my other providers and will see me back in two weeks, or sooner, to let me know what course she will be taking. I had brought my daughter with me and Dr. Paranada was excellent in letting her know all that was going on and what to expect. After only the first visit, I put a lot of faith in this doctor and feel she will be there for me when needed.
