Review of Dr. Parker Jr

- in East Hampton, CT |

I elected to have sigmoid colectomy surgery due to recurrences I was having of diverticulitis. Dr. Parker had no problem helping me and understood I was pressed for time due to starting nursing school in a couple of months. He explained the procedure and within two weeks I went in for the surgery. Dr. Parker's down-to-earth, friendly personality combined with his expertise made him the perfect choice. I feel great post-surgery and couldn't be happier. I highly recommend Dr. Parker!!

Review of Dr. Parker Jr


DR.RUBIN HIRSCH my primary doctor recommended that I see a DR MICHAEL PARKER. I had severe bleeding hemorrhoids.DR PARKER was very easy to talk to. He examined me and suggested P.T. as a first step.I went for a while and it did not get any better. HE then suggested surgery.He assured me that that everything would be O.K. HE operated on me AUG 27 and 2 weeks later I felt a lot better.Thanks to DR PARKER for a job well done.

Dr. Parker is an excellent surgeon. He genuinely cares for the well being of his patients and makes every effort to keep the family involved and informed. In addition to his professionalism he is also truly a great person.

Dr Parker explained the alternatives in treatment for my hernia, listened to me and my "keeper" (inside joke), I did not feel rushed at all. I was asked if I wanted a meeting with the gas passer as well; all bases were covered. The surgery, for my 5th hernia in 63 years, was entirely successful, I feel, and I would recommend Dr Parker without reservation. Thanks Doc!

I cannot say enough about Dr Parker's excellence. I had a colon resection, it was the easiest surgery I have ever been through. Dr Parker listens, answers questions and follows up with his patients. Having this surgery with Dr. Parker was the best decision, I feel better than I have in a long time

Dr. Parker is a rockstar. A colorectal surgeon par excellence. Dr. Parker operated on me 12/14/17 - internal and external hemorrhoidectomy. I have had little serious pain. Two weeks later it's almost like I never had surgery... In the best possible way. Post-surgery follow up 1/8/18. From someone who's been there: Tylenol instead of opioids. Drink lots of water. MOM if needed.. Elevate your feet above your hips when doing your business. I think Dr. Parker is gifted surgeon who listens.

I went to Dr. Parker based upon his excellent reviews, with a very embarrassing problem with a bowel prolapse. It was the best thing I ever did. Dr. Parker was wonderful. He explained in detail the operation, and was so very pleasant and down to earth. He is an excellent surgeon, and completely eliminated my problem. I highly recommend Dr. Parker!

The first time I met Dr. Parker, I knew he was the surgeon for me. I was scared but he listened and explained things so I could understand. He is personable and caring. He is passionate and very knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Parker to anyone who needs colorectal surgery.

My frail. 97 pound, 81 year old mother was diagnosed with colon cancer after having some abdominal problems. Dr. Parker came highly recommended. After our initial pre-op appointment and after surgery I received phone calls on Friday evenings to discuss plan of action and biopsy results. He is a gentle man, thoroughly explained everything to both my mother and myself. My mother was discharged 2 days after her colectomy and is doing very well back at home, independent!! I highly recommend him.
