Dr. Parker was very thorough, knowledgeable, diligent and professional. Feel confident in his ability to treat my cancer to the best of his ability. He displays good bedside manners too.

I have known Dr Carrion for more than 40 years. I have operated with him, shared patients with him and benefited from his knowledge and skills. Academic urology is a different animal than community Urology. It is not as convenient , doesn't move as fast as we like and involves medical urologists in training. I consider this an asset. I lived the life of a academic urologist and a community one as well. I have had surgery in both environments. I can tell you that for a simple problem academia(the university) may not be the best place for you; if you are interested in convenience, and experience. But for a difficult problem, a complication or an unusual situation, there is no better place to go than to Dr Carrion and his university partners. i have seen them rescue desperate cases and done so with care ,compassion and charity. We are fortunate in Tampa to have this expertise. I will not hesitate to send him any of my patients or put my life in his hand if the situation arises.

Dr. Carrion is one of the most technically proficient and straight talking doctors that I have ever met. His manner will, at once, make you comfortable with the idea you are in great hands that will lead to a favorable prognosis. He is an honorable man that understands that being a patient, at any time, is a stressful and scary time. His approach tells you that he understands the patient point of view and he does everything he can to make you feel comfortable. I was a vet who Dr. Carrion performed a penile pump surgery at the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital. His follow up was consistent and the results have exceeded my wildest expectations.

I can’t emphasize enough about the highest levels of appreciation & gratitude that I have for Dr. Parker, Dr. Lorenzo & the entire staff at USF/TGH. As a retired physician, I myself only let the best of the very best physicians treat when it comes to my own healthcare. Dr. Parker, Dr. Lorenzo and staff are truly outstanding in every aspect. The group is exceptionally helpful, caring and extremely accommodating with regards to the care of their patients. On a 1-10 scale, I am honestly rating the entire experience as an 11+. His coordinator, Carolina, is one of the most kindest and caring persons that I have ever known and was outstanding at pulling some last minute strings for me during a very difficult period of time in order to help my care. Thanks again for everything. You guys are the best!!

I wanted to say thank you to my amazing Urologist, Dr. Rafael Carrion, MD, from Moffitt Cancer Center/USF Health who operated on me recently. I was nervous upon our first appointment, but he answered all my questions in layman’s terms and I felt confident I’d made the right choice. What really stands out to me is how Dr. Carrion went above and beyond to help me get through my very delicate operation. He had a very comforting bedside manner and he assured me I was in great hands. He met with me right before my operation to answer any last minute questions and calm my fears. He also met with me again in the recovery room to make sure I was doing fine and again answer any questions I still had. He told me everything went as planned and I did excellent. Home Healthcare was arranged through his office and I felt my recovery was handled very well. During my follow-up appointment two weeks later, he checked me out, said I looked great and was healing perfectly. I would highly recommend Dr. Rafael Carrion and his staff, as he is one of the best in his field.

Dr. Carrion has a great bedside manner and we felt all our concerns were adequately addressed. My husband's operation was delicate and I know he was very afraid to go through it but Dr. Carrion was wonderful at addressing our concerns prior to the procedure and during his follow up appointment. I was very pleased with his level of care, professionalism and concern.
