I'm so sorry your experience wasn't satisfactory. I'd like a chance to rectify the issue. Please give my office a call so I can speak with you over the phone or in person. Thank you, Doctor Brian Parsley.

All Dr. Parsley could see was an overweight body. I don't believe I qualified as a patient or person based on his attitude. He informed me I should walk and lose weight before he could help me. If I could have gone walking, I wouldn't have been seeking his help. I recognize 60 lbs overweight is a lot, but it does NOT warrant him the right to try to shame me by handing me a Gastric Bypass brochure. NEVER RECOMMEND

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
