I really like Dr Parker and his staff. He seems very genuine and caring. I have great confidence in his skills and knowledge.

May 06, 2014

this was good and it may be due to the fact Dr. Parker remembers me...

April 02, 2014

Dr. Parker is amazing and no matter how trivial the question or concern, he always spends the time and makes sure we understand and are confident of the care we are given and the medication and process we are using to control or cure my medical issues. He's a very caring and compassionate Dr.

March 24, 2014

dDR Parker is a great doctor, very caring, and I feel as though I am in good hands.

March 18, 2014

I'm glad that Dr. Parker was willing to do a more in-depth investigation into my problem and not just blow it off as others have done.

November 25, 2013

Dr.Parker's interne assistant was particularly caring. She spent a considerable amount of time listening and discussing my related health issues. I was impressed with her manner and the way she spoke with me - showing a caring above and beyond. Dr. Parker, too, treated me as a friend as well as a patient. I left feeling that my health is important to both professionals.

November 22, 2013

All my concerns were answered and taken care of. I felt very comfortable.

November 05, 2013

Absolutely the BEST experience I've had with a care provider in many many years. Never felt rushed. They answer every question more than once. Made me feel important and cared for at a personal lever. Thank you!

September 02, 2013

Doctor Parker is an excellent doctor and very caring.

July 11, 2013

I felt that the three Doctors were talking among them selves and not including me. I was undergoing a blood draw in which the tech tried three times to get the blood, during the time the Doctors were trying to talk to me.

April 01, 2013

Please note: My "fair" responses above concerned the initial (I assume resident or intern) provider who first spoke with us. His response to my questions was not clear - although it was long and detailed without really answering my questions in a way I could make sense of. The Provider with whom our appointment was scheduled was much better at explaining in terms that we could understand.

February 20, 2013

Dr Parker is an extremely kind, knowledgable man, and always prompt. I like him!

February 11, 2013

Dr Parker placed in my file instruction for future visits with my primary care midwife to include a blood draw so we can follow up the concern. This eliminates extra visits to his office. I will only need to be seen by one provider after a final visit in 6months if all appears normal.

February 11, 2013

Wonderful!

October 22, 2012

Dr. Parker gave me the time to absorb things and ask questions...will see him again soon

August 13, 2012

This was my first experience with Dr. Parker and it was positive overall.

June 25, 2012

Dr. Parker and Andrea Schindler took more time with me than any other health care provider at their levels has since I have been sick. They answered questions and I didn't feel that they were in a hurry to see other patients.

April 19, 2012

Best doctor-patient relationship I've had since initial diagnosis.

March 01, 2012

I liked Dr Parker the first time we met. He was kind and I felt as though I was in good hands with him.

January 26, 2012

I had a really great experience. My Doctor was thorough and I really appreciated his expertise.

January 10, 2012

I did not see a doctor today. I just had lab work done.
