Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parker "I take pride in being kind, honest, open and very straight forward with my patients.  I also believe that most doctors don't do a great job at explaining medical problems and the solutions.  This is also why I've written articles on my website myself, and made countless videos specifically with patient understanding in mind. I also spend more time with my patients than the average surgeon. -Dr. Buck"
