Parmenter, John, M. D., Buffalo, was born in Canada in 1862, and was educated in the public schools of Buffalo, graduating from the Buffalo High School in 1879, and from the medical department of the University of Buffalo in 1883, when he began his career as physician and surgeon. He is surgeon to the Fitch, Erie County and Children’s Hospitals, assistant surgeon to the General Hospital and professor of anatomy and clinical surgery in the University of Buffalo. He is a fellow of the American Surgical Association, a member of the Erie County Medical Society, and other local organizations. Few men have attained such prominence at so early an age as Dr. Parmenter. In 1887 he visited Europe, traveling extensively and visiting the hospitals of Germany, Austria and England, thereby fitting himself for the high and successful place he has already attained in his profession.
