Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Parkinson "Dr. Andrew Parkinson specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the Spine. Dr. Parkinson completed his Fellowship at The Texas Back Institute, with specialty training in all areas of spine care, including surgical and non surgical treatments and interventional pain therapies.
