I saw Dr. Parks last week for my acne. Although acne is very embarrassing to me, Dr. Parks recommended a product that I received results in 4 days. I can't thank him enough.

Bedside manner not good. Spent less than five minutes in the room and took no time to really examine my scalp. Simply said that his five second examination told him everything. Said I had a form of Alopecia where my hair wouldn't grow back. Didn't need a biopsy of my scalp because he could tell by what he saw. Hair seems to be growing now with other methods where he said it would not grow back.

Dr. Parks is an excellent, amazing doctor. He is very kind, friendly, professional, and extremely competent. He listens to my concerns and explains medical conditions very clearly and understandably. I totally trust his recommendations and decisions. 14 years ago, he noticed something on my calf. I'm sure he knew exactly what it was because he scheduled me to come in the next morning before office hours to remove it and it was a melanoma. Dr. Parks saved my life and I will be forever grateful.

First visit with Dr. Parks was good. He was timely, polite,helpful, although not very thorough at looking at my skin.When the medicine he prescribed didn't do the job,I went back for a 2nd visit.I asked for different/stronger medicine. He told me there is no other medicine and I have to just deal with it. I ended up getting a 2nd opinion was told that there are many types of treatments we can try. Dr. Parks' bedside manner is great but his care is lacking. I would NOT recommend him.

Very poor bedside manners. Did not bother to call me with my biopsy results which were abnormal. No apologies. My results were pre-cancerous. Follow up buopsy delayed by 2 months. Icing on the cake, I gave them permission to charge co-pay $90 to my credit card and they charged $660, which I have disputed. Strongly recommend not to go to Dr. Park. I should mention that I am a physician myself.
