Patient Comments (1)
Nashville, TN |
Dr. Parker is an evidence based physician. If your problems can be seen on tests or scans he is probably ok. If your medical condition is not easily discovered or has diagnostic tests, then do not see him. I myself and health care provider and am knowledgeable about what is appropriate and compassionate care. I did not receive that kind of care. My primary care physician, not nurse practitioner, has been a better diagnostician and treatment provider. I will not return or recommend
