    This is by far my best experience in a medical office! Katie and Summer are so easy to talk to and schedule appointments around a busy schedule. I went in for a consultation and left the office with the desired procedure completed in less than an hour. I realize this cannot happen all of the time but it worked out perfectly. Dr. Parker's prices are better than most in Athens and he cares about the patients. He answered all of my questions before I could even ask.
