Infusion center is disorganized and does'mt care about wasteing my time. I had to go one place to get my labortory blood drawn and there was no order, waited in line and told to go find my own dr lab order because it was not in the computer. The parking is awful. The Doc is okay but getting an infusion is terrivble at his office.

I had been seeing a different Rheumatologist for 9+ years and never really learned much about my condition or why I felt so horrible all the time! I switched to Dr. Parker and have seen him TWICE and already have learned a TON about my condition and Dr. Parker already has a treatment plan in place so I will eventually feel better! He TAKES TIME with you, EXPLAINS things and I don't think he would EVER settle for NOT finding the problem! He is OPEN MINDED, not tunnel visioned like a LOT of Doc's!

Dr. Parker is a very personable doctor. He listens to all your concerns and problems. He doesn't rush or interrupt you when you talk with him. He looks like a kid but after listening to him, you know that he knows what he is talking about. I would and have recommended him to my friends.
