I am 48 years old and have been avoiding tonsillectomy for over ten years because I feared the infamous pain and suffering from the procedure. I was so fortunate to have Dr. Parker perform my tonsillectomy with the thermal fusion tissue welding technique. I'm 4 days out and doing great. The pain was very manageable with Tylenol and Advil-no narcotics!! I could swallow easily from the beginning and have been eating soft stuff without any trouble. I give Dr Parker my highest recommendation

I had been feeling sick for four months. I went to see my PCP, had blood tests, and chest x-rays. She found NOTHING ~ Unable to help me. I was immediately given an appointment. They were fast and friendly. I was seen by Donna, the Physician Associate. I absolutely LOVED her. She diagnosed me within seconds, gave me Rx, she also showed me how to use them. Within 30 minutes I was back to normal. I'm just sorry I did not go in 4 months ago.
Norwalk, CT |
This was the worst medical office experience I've ever had. I saw one of his PA's and both she and the office were disgusting. The exam room and the woman's hands stunk of cigarette smoke. Very lovely when she is sticking them right in your nose. She also was incredibly rude, snapping at me twice during the evaluation and insulting me by saying she knows more than me. I've never been treated so poorly. Go elsewhere.
in Stuart, FL |
Very friendly and casual, as well as an expert with both diagnosis and treatment...good guy, too.
in Norwalk, CT |
This review is based on Dr Parker's colleagues and staff, as I was never given an opportunity to meet Dr Parker. I especially commend audiology coordinator Wendy Cooke and receptionist Lydia Singer for their friendly, helpful, and professional manner. The New Canaan office is shared with other, non-medical companies, and therefore feels cramped; there is no dedicated waiting area. The Norwalk office is much larger and more comfortable, though the decor is sorely in need of an update.
in Westerly, RI |
I had a tonsillectomy, adenoids, and uvula! It was horrendous. Dr Parker did not prepare me for the recovery. He was less than compassionate when I had to come in after 5 days to get the stitches out of my throat......and then I never heard from them again!

Dr. Parker says...

Dr. Parker's training in Pediatric ENT allows him to help you make the best medical choices for your child. While not practicing medicine, Dr. Parker is the lead singer for two local rock and roll bands.  His training as a vocalist gives him unique insight into the voice problems of performing artists, and notable professionals frequently travel a great distance to seek his opinion.

Dr. Parker says...

Dr. Parker was the FIRST doctor in the state of Connecticut to perform Balloon Sinuplasty (Widening of the sinuses with a Balloon) back in 2006.  He is also one of only two physicians in Connecticut able to place the LYRIC implantable hearing aid.

Dr Parker is the ONLY surgeon in the tri-state area using Thermal Fusion Tissue Welding for tonsillectomy, as seen on ABC's 20/20. This cutting edge technique decreases recovery time, and has less postoperative pain thsn traditional tonsil removal techniques.
