    First doctor I've ever had who seemed empathetic to my medical needs and didn't try to rush out the door after 5 minutes. Staff was professional and friendly.

    VERY GOOD, I read a bad review about him and that is all total B.S. I like him better than any other doctor I have and I have a lot due to declining health. Very nice guy and very smart.

    I rarely ever visit a doctor. I was referred to Dr.Parker by a friend and I ended up leaving his office in tears from how rude & unprofessional he was to me. I went for help, Instead I was treated terribly! As for the cleanliness of his office/ lobby all I have to say about this, is the floors were unclean along with huge dead roaches, poor seating & the smell inside is not pleasant! I will NOT be back.
